This Week at Centenary

Join us for Worship on Sunday, October 30. There will be only one worship service at 11:00 am as Senior Pastor Matt Bates preaches "When Resolve Meets Faith" with a Consecration and Dedication of the Newly Renovated Kitchen and New Elevator. Following the Worship Service, a brunch will be offered in the Fellowship Hall.

Continuing in Sunday School, all adults are invited to gather in the Fellowship Hall at 10:00 am to hear a presentation from the 2020 Committee under the leadership of Joe Speidel. This Centenary Strategic Planning Committee has been meeting for the last nine months and these presentations will be a summary of its work. The issues raised are critical to Centenary's future.
