Each Sunday morning our elementary age children are invited to attend "Kids' Worship" upstairs following the pastors children's sermon in the sanctuary. During Kids' Worship our children do crafts, learn Bible lessons, watch videos and sing songs.
There is also Nursery Care (birth - 3yr olds) available through worship and Sunday school 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM Nursery care is often provided for other events as well.

Seventh Cents Youth Group
The Seventh Cents Youth Group took 11 youth and adults to Davenport Iowa the week of July 22-27, 2012. While there the youth were split into 2 "Crews". Jim Moles led the Captain America crew and Amanda Tramel led the Hulk Crew. Captain America spent the mornings at an adult day center where they led music during worship, played card games, led exercise class, and socialized with the group.

FROM THE PASTOR’S PEN
Wow! Can you believe it is almost May? It seems like this year is just flying by. But as we begin to think summer, there are several things happening within our congregation. We hosted two district events, the Lay Servant Academy was on April 23 and the District United Methodist Women on was on April 30. Youth Sunday will be May 1. We have a Sycamore Social scheduled for May 2. The Habitat for Humanity bike riders will be here on May 9. Vacation Bible School is on June 17 and 18. We are looking at putting a mission trip together sometime in July.
We are also looking at starting a Faith Community Nurse program at Centenary. Our newest member, Felicia Stewart, is a commissioned and board certified faith community nurse. Lea Ann and I have also been through the training for this program, though it has been a while. You will be hearing more about what this is and how it works in the near future. We are currently putting together a needs assessment to help us get an idea of what people really want or need. There are also a few other things in the works, so stay tuned.
As you can see, there are several things happening at Centenary UMC. I hope you will consider getting involved in one or some of these programs. There are many ways to be involved, from prayer, to monetary support, to actually being a participant.
So, as we think about summer, ask yourself, what is God calling me to be involved in and how is He wanting me to be involved.
For the only cause that matters,
