Minnesota Annual Conference Love Offering: Each year, churches in the Minnesota Annual Conference take a Love Offering for missions in conjunction with the Annual Conference Session, which was held last Saturday via Zoom. As we do each year at Centennial, we receive a Love Offering to send to Annual Conference. The Love Offering provides the opportunity to be light and hope for those crying out for love, compassion, justice, and grace in their lives. The funds from this year’s offering will to go to four projects: Simpson Housing Services (40 percent), Emma Norton Services (40 percent), Joyce Uptown Foodshelf (10 percent), and the Committee on Native American Ministry Diaper Drive (10 percent). If the Spirit moves you to give, you can find out more about these important ministries at [CLICK HERE]

Habitat for Humanity/ Holy Hammers 2020 Project 

The Holy Hammer 2020 project has completed its modified 8 week schedule. Centennial was well represented at the building site that saw a number of changes due to the COVID-19 situation. We had an 8 instead of 10 week build time, all volunteers worked shorter hours, were masked, kept social distancing when possible, disinfected a lot and provided their own food and beverages. Because of changes in scheduling there were no specific days with just Centennial members on site but many did coordinate times to be together. We were able to contribute monetarily from our special Easter offering and other congregational donations. To see pictures of the progress on the twin homes at 588-90 Wells Street, St. Paul go to the following link: [CLICK HERE]

 

We are still doing Church!  Here’s just a glimpse of what is happening in these stay-at-home times at Centennial:

  • Children’s activities & devotions from Pastor Jen and Amanda shared online with children & parents.

  • Middle school & senior high online activities and gatherings from Amanda and Derek.

  • Sunday online worship from both campuses—huge thanks to our invaluable tech coordinators, John Misa at Roseville and Hal King & Eric Bjorklund at SAP.

  • Sunday morning Zoom adult classes continue from Roseville campus—Connectivity through the Houses & DeLongs, and the Twenty-Something group with Pastor Brian.

  • Sunday morning Zoom Bible study continues from SAP campus with Pastor Whitney.

  • Video devotionals continue from Pastor Brian.

  • Our various ministry teams are still meeting via Zoom (or Google Docs)—Missions, Church & Society, Children’s & Family Ministry, Church Council, Finance, Trustees, Staff—just to name a few!  (By the way, all of these include members from both campuses.)

  • Be watching for NEW initiatives…and keep checking in with each other one-on-one and in your circles, small groups, and classes!

  • We may not be able to worship in-person yet, but as the song goes, Yes, we’re the Church together!
