Online Worship to continue for 2020: the Church Council has decided out of an abundance of concern for the health of our worshipers that there will be no in-person worship for the remainder of 2020. With no singing allowed, no hugs or handshakes which are so important to church being church when we are in person, and social distancing which would reduce the size of any worshiping group to fifty or fewer in the Roseville or SAP sanctuary, we believe that we can offer better worship experiences online, and we welcome your continued feedback on what we are presently doing from each campus. Of course, if conditions greatly improve we would look forward to reversing this announcement. We strongly encourage all Centennial members and friends to join a small group or class, as well as worship with us online regularly. Please focus all the more on praying for one another and our world. The buildings’ doors may be closed, but the church is open to share the love of Jesus wherever God’s people go every day. - Church Council Person Derek Vandenburg

 

Advent at Home: Three ways to engage in the upcoming Advent season of expectation, waiting and preparing this year:

1) Join a small group. We'll be using Jorge Acevedo's book Sent: Delivering the Gift of Hope at Christmas "Two thousand years ago, a baby was born who changed the world. God sent Jesus, and today, you and I are sent to be his hands and feet, delivering God's gifts of hope to a world in need." Sign-up information coming soon. 

2) Follow along with the Advent Calendar which will be shared on Facebook and sent out via email.

3) Sign up at [CLICK HERE] by Sunday Nov. 8th for an Advent at Home Activity Box. Boxes can be picked up Sunday Nov. 22nd or 29th from 1-2pm. If you live within reasonable distance from the church and are unable to pick up your box, contact Pastor Jen to schedule a contactless porch drop off.
