Welcome Ministry

I'm New

Centenary’s ministers, staff and congregation welcome you to be inspired in worship and engaged in ministry.  We will gladly answer any questions and help you with any needs you may have as you attend an event on the Centenary campus.  Following each worship experience, you may speak with a minister as you exit the Sanctuary or Auditorium. Should you have an immediate question, or if you want to learn about church membership, please contact Rev. Meg Gaston, Associate Minister for Evangelism and Engagement.

Starting Point

Starting Point is a 90-minute session that will give you an opportunity to form a deeper connection to Centenary and make a decision about joining the church. Centenary clergy and staff will be present so you may get to know them and also be able to answer any questions you may have. Whether you are a newcomer, or you have been worshipping at Centenary for months, or longer, Starting Point is the place to begin.  Starting Point is offered several times throughout the year.  To learn more, contact Rev. Meg Gaston, Associate Minister of Evangelism and Engagement.

Welcome Team

When you enter the church building on Sunday morning, your first encounter may just be one of Centenary’s Welcome Team members.  They can be easily spotted by their colorful red and white lanyards.  This team’s mission is to greet every person who comes to worship and to make every person feel welcomed.  If you are a newcomer to Centenary and have questions about room locations such as the Nursery or a Sunday school class, the Welcome Team is there to help you find

your way.


If you have questions or would like to learn more about this ministry please contact Rev. Meg Gaston.
