Every person who walks through our doors matters.
Everyone deserves a place at the table…
to be seen and heard
to be affirmed and acknowledged
as a beloved child of God, and
to be fed physically, emotionally and spiritually.
This teaching is central to the values of the community of faith called Centenary Church. Miraculous connections take place when we set aside social, economic, racial and even religious differences and gather together to share our own unique experiences of life, faith and encounter with the Divine Mystery that is God.
We invite you to join us on the journey as we seek together to rediscover the mysteries of faith. We sincerely believe that ours is one of the warmest, most accepting communities you will ever discover. Each of us is a testament to this belief. We are all broken, yet beloved children of God and have found hope, grace, and love at Centenary. We hope you will join us and see for yourself what Centenary is all about.

What To Expect
Worship at Centenary is varied because we understand that there is no single style that exclusively connects us to God. Music may include traditional hymns or more modern praise choruses. You will find that we use our organ and piano as well as guitars, keyboards, and sometimes trumpets and flutes to lead our congregation in worship. Preaching responsibility is shared among four different staff members. Each of their voices provides us with a unique and varied view of God and challenges us to understand God from other perspectives. The one constant in our Sunday worship service is that our worship is genuine and passionate, whatever form it takes.
