Centenary Church provides an atmosphere to experience Christ’s love, grow in Christ’s love, and to share Christ’s love. CENTYouth Student Ministry is about providing a safe place for youth to create authentic connections with God and with each other. Our focus as 6th-12th graders is to learn about Christ’s love through scripture, to grow by conversation, and to share by acts of service. We are working to develop our skills necessary for a lifelong journey in the body of Christ through servant leadership and building a caring community. No matter where you are in your walk of faith, there is a place for you at CENTYouth!
Join Pastor Mike on Sunday night!
A support group meeting weekly for anyone who has lost a loved one. You’ll find it a warm, caring environment and will come to see your group as an “oasis” on your long journey through grief. Each session includes a video and discussion and utilizes a workbook for journaling and personal study exercises. Although GriefShare is a Christian faith based program, all are welcome no matter what your religious affiliation or beliefs might be.
Our group is led by caring people who have experienced grief and have successfully rebuilt their lives. We understand how you feel as we have been in the same place. We will walk with you on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future.
When a loved one or friend dies, grieving that loss can take a long time, but you are not alone. GriefShare is here with support groups, and now daily emails, that provide encouragement and reminders of the recovery process.
