Youth Ministry

Our Mission:

“To Love youth on behalf of Jesus in hopes of loving them to Jesus.”


Our Belief:

A contemplative approach to youth ministry is based on our commitment to cultivate young people’s attentiveness to God’s presence and is supported in the following ways: Sabbath, Prayer, Covenant Community, Accompaniment, Discernment, Hospitality and Authentic Action.

The Invitation

Our desire as we extend an invitation to each of you is that you would come with a seeking heart, eager to know Jesus Christ.  Our world is so full of opportunities and choices that it is easy to be involved in so many things.


Our youth ministry is intentional about offering you space and tools to encounter the living, loving Jesus so that your life may be transformed.


Please look through this website, pick an activity or two, and call someone you know to join you.  Come join us, come grow with us, and come worship with us as we seek God together.


Living in His Grace,

Tammy Pollock, Director of Youth Ministries, 

and Tyler MacDonald, Associate Director of Youth Ministry

Middle School

“Come to Christ, who is the living cornerstone of God’s temple… And now God is building in you, as living stones, into His spiritual temple.”
~ 1 Peter 2:4-6


This is our ministry for Middle School students! This is a time of fellowship, fun, focus on scripture, encounters with God, prayer, and small groups. Middle school is one wild & crazy time in your life and our hope is that at Cornerstone you will find a place that you can just be you! We meet on Sunday nights in the Haven Room 108-B from 5-6:15 pm. All youth 6th-8th grades are invited to join us for this incredible assemblage of awesome students! It won’t be the same without you!

High School

This is our ministry for High School students! We know how very busy you are and want to honor all that you have going on in your lives… but just as Jesus came to the well to rest, get water, and be refreshed, we too need to rest and to receive the living water that only He can offer. 

We invite you to come to The Well for food, fun, fellowship, intentional spiritual community, prayer and nourishment for your souls so that you can go out into the rest of your week refreshed, renewed and full! 

Join us Sunday nights in the Haven Room 108-B from 6:45-8 pm. All youth 9th-12th grades are invited to come and be a part of this incredible community!


Calling all 7th Graders!  This is your year to figure out your faith through Confirmation –faith formation!  Starting Wednesday night, January 8, at 6 pm we will have dinner and spend time going through our new book, “Way to Live,” journaling, engaging in fun activities, and talking about how our faith is lived out in our daily lives! Each 

Confirmand will have a Shepherd – guide, partner, faith friend—who will go with them through the process and meet with them once every week!  There will be two retreats and few fun field trips as well!  Classes will continue through May 17!

Love thy Neighbor

Love Thy Neighbor is led by Centenary Senior High students and is an outreach ministry to the homeless and marginally housed population of downtown Winston-Salem.  In an effort to breakdown social barriers, we invite our neighbors to the church for a hot meal, BINGO, a medical clinic, and fellowship once a month during the school year.  We also provide a dental clinic twice during the year.  We share this ministry as an expression of Christ’s unconditional love. 


Born out of a transformational experience at GLIDE church in San Francisco, our hope is that this ministry transforms our community and draws others into the presence of the living God and into serving Christ.

Mission Trips

As followers of Christ, we believe we are called to go out into our community and the world and be the hands and feet of Jesus through mission work and serving others!!  Each summer we take two fun and rewarding mission trips—an all grade (6th—12th) trip to Hinton Rural Life Center in Hayesville, North Carolina and our Senior High Youthworks trip. 


Be on the look out for information and registrations for these amazing mission opportunities.
