Children's Faith Formation
Children are a vital part of our ministry at Centenary. From our fully staffed nursery to our children's theatre group- there are many opportunities for kids to engage in the life of the church. All children are encouraged to attend worship and attend Sunday morning faith formation at 9:00 a.m. Wednesday nights we offer a rich learning environment for kids to explore their faith through age appropriate classes.
Centenary has a long history of wonderful music. The Grace and Power Handbells practices Wednesday nights and provides music about once a month. The Sanctuary Choir is open to youth and adults. They practice Wednesday nights and sing at the 9a, worship service twice a month. The Carol Choir also practices on Wednesday nights and is open to elementary aged children. Anyone is welcome to join a choir!
Social Justice Theater
One of our cornerstone ministries is our Social Justice Theatre. Using theatre to explore the intersection of justice and faith, we invite anyone to get involved in our theatre productions whether as an actor, a costumer, a tech member, or an audience member! Past shows have included Charlie Brown, Proof, Butterflies are Free, Shrek, and It's a Wonderful Life.
Youth in grades 7-12 are invited to join youth group on Wednesday nights. The youth group focuses on social justice, growing as a disciple, and asking the tough questions about faith and life. Through mission trips, lock-ins, discussions, Bible study, games and more, youth are able to explore their faith in a safe and welcoming environment.
