Upcoming Fall Book Study: Starting in mid-September, we are planning to discuss Rev. Tyler Sit’s book, Staying Awake: The Gospel for Changemakers.  The teaser from the back of the book says, “Jesus asked his followers to stay awake, which begs the question:  stay awake to what?”  Rev. Tyler is a United Methodist pastor at New City Church in Minneapolis. There are currently 3 groups prepared to begin after Welcome Home Sunday:

If none of these options are quite right for you but you’re still interested in participating, please contact Karensa at patinapatina [AT] me [DOT] com. We still might have another group option. The book can also be found here: https://bookshop.org/books/staying-awake-the-gospel-for-changemakers/9780827235526

 

Connectivity Adult Faithwalk will "Meet and Greet" September 12th on Zoom with the program starting September 19th.  We plan to continue on Zoom rather than in person at church and  start at 11:00 AM, so RSV and SAP members can participate after church services.

 

Virtual Small Groups:  While the church building is closed, many of our Small Groups are continuing to meet via Zoom or other platforms.

- If your group/class would like to use Zoom, please contact Dennis Webster at dwebster [AT] centennialumc.org

- If you would like to join a small group, reach out to the contact person listed below or contact Pastor Jen at janderson [AT] centennialumc.org
