Do you want to serve a meal to a family in need? Caring Cooks is a group of Centenary members that cook and stock the church kitchen freezer for just that purpose. Any church member can go to the freeze and select a meal to deliver to another Centenary member or anyone in the community in need.
The meals are prepared by a group of 25 people that cook once a month and cook 75-100 meals. The meals are designed to feed 2-4 people.

GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable GriefShare resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life.
Are you going through a tough time — emotionally or spiritually? Struggling with a crisis in life? Or simply feeling down? Consider letting a Stephen Minister help.
Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who are trained to listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support to people who are facing a crisis or going through tough times. The care you receive is confidential, free, and very helpful.
To learn how you - or a friend, neighbor, co-worker or relative - can receive care, talk to a member of the Pastoral staff or a Stephen Minister.
If you want to speak to a Stephen Minister at a worship service, look for a person with a blue nametag.
May they be blessed, given comfort, healing and strength.
May they be reminded that the are loved and not forgotten.
We share our prayers as the shawl is made.
Meetings are once a week.
