“To Love youth on behalf of Jesus in hopes of loving them to Jesus.”
We are looking forward to meeting you and knowing you. Please contact Tammy Pollock, Director of Youth Ministry to find out more information about our Youth Ministry.
Our prayer, as we extend an invitation to each of you, is that you would come with a seeking heart, eager to know Jesus Christ and a desire to be part of our amazing community. We know our world is so full of opportunities and choices that it is so easy to be involved in many different things. We hope what you will find here at Centenary Youth Ministry is a place to belong, be you, and be loved.
Our Youth Ministry is intentional about loving you where you are and encouraging you to grow deeper in your relationship with God by giving you space and tools to encounter the living, loving Jesus so that your life may be transformed.

Middle Schoolers, 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! 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!
"Those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.” -John 4:14
High Schoolers, 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! 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 6, 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 a few fun field trips as well! Classes will continue through May 16!
Love Thy Neighbor
Unfortunately during the Covid pandemic we have had to suspend our LTN lunches and medical clinic per CDC guidelines. Please check back as restrictions change for future events.
Love Thy Neighbor is led by Centenary youth 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 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.

Summer Mission Trips 2021
As followers of Christ, we believe we are invited to go out into our community, and the world at large, to be the hands and feet of Jesus through mission work and serving others! Each summer our Youth Ministry goes out into the world, serving the Lord, in two different places. Our ‘ALL Youth’ in Mission Trip (6th - 12th graders) head to Mountain TOP (Tennessee Outreach Project) in June and our Senior High Mission (9th-12th graders) Trip partners with YouthWorks! to work in a different city or country every July. These trips are life-changing, giving you the opportunity to encounter Jesus and truly live out the Gospel message to “love God and love Neighbor”.
What is Mission?
Webster defines mission as “a body of persons sent to perform a service or carry on an activity.” In the Gospel of Matthew 25:31-46, Jesus tells us that what we do for one another, we do for Him. So, mission is sending people out to serve others on Jesus’ behalf-clothing those who need to be clothed, feeding those who are hungry, helping those who are sick, visiting those who are in prison. That is mission! It is an outward response to an inward desire to go and do as Jesus calls us to.
We hope you will pick one OR both of our trips and plan to join us!
