Books for Oaks Road
Books for Oaks Road Students-For the past three years, Centenarians have shared the joy of reading with the students at Oaks Road Academy. We brought well over 500 books each year, for the children to choose and take home to read. This year, we are asking you to bring books again on Thanksgiving Sunday, November 24, to place on the tables that will surround the altar rail at all three services. Please bring books that are appropriate for children ages 5-11 years old and place them on the tables when you come to church on the 24th. The books will be delivered to Oaks Road where the children will be able to choose the book that interests them the most.
Cinnamon Roll Fundraiser
Centenary Caring Cooks is once again holding a Cinnamon Roll Fundraiser in December. You will have the opportunity to stock up on cinnamon rolls for gifts or for serving at all of your holiday functions. They are homemade yeast cinnamon rolls with a maple frosting. They freeze beautifully. We will be selling a pan of 8 large cinnamon rolls for $10. We will be baking cinnamon rolls on Friday, December 6th and Friday, December 13th. You will be able to pick up your rolls from 3-7pm on either of those days. We will not be taking orders - the Cinnamon Rolls will only be available on a first come first serve basis on December 6th and 13th. We thank you for your support of our ministry! We are able to keep our freezer stocked with meals that anyone in the church is able to take to a family or individual in need. If you would like to know more about Centenary Caring Cooks and how you can be involved in our ministry, contact Dawn Ferreira at 252-289-5630.
