Greetings! We hope everyone is doing well. We are pleased to announce that Centenary will re-open for in-person worship services on June 7th at 10:45 a.m. Let us reassure you that if you feel in any way uncertain about attending, it is perfectly all right to continue to worship in your own home. Services will continue to be recorded and made available via the usual outlets below, and we will continue to mail out paper copies of the message to those who choose not to attend the service. Our first priority is your health and well-being, and we do not want you to take any unnecessary risks. 


For our in-person services, there will be strict rules in place, as per both the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the Kentucky Conference. Entry to the church will be only through the ramp entrance from the upper parking lot, and only the sanctuary and the sanctuary level restrooms will be open to the public.  We will maintain social distancing between family units. Everyone will be required to wear a mask (there will be disposable masks available if you forget your personal mask) and be dispensed hand sanitizer upon entry and as needed throughout the service. Everyone will be screened before entry, and if there is any indication on screening that you might be at risk, you will be asked to return to your vehicle and perhaps seek medical attention. 


The service will take a slightly different form for the foreseeable future. There will be no bulletins, and all hymnals and bibles have been removed from the pews. There will be no choir, but there will be alternative forms of musical worship. The offering plate will not be passed, but will be available in the sanctuary to receive your tithes and offerings. If you feel more comfortable continuing to mail in your offering, please do that. As of right now, there are no plans to offer communion until we can put in place a way to do so while maintaining social distancing.

Our church can be described in many ways; historic, traditional, Methodist, etc.  But just as people are more than the labels assigned them, so is our church. We believe that the best way to describe ourselves rests with  the folks that make up our congregation.  Our church family is made up of a variety of creative, fun, loving, intelligent, successful, and amazing people who would love to welcome you this Sunday. 


Our traditional Sunday service starts in the sanctuary at 10:45. Our mission at Centenary is to make disciples for Jesus Christ. Come meet our family and see for yourself the love and fellowship we share.  Have a past? Never been to church? Formerly churched and now don't attend? You are always welcome at Centenary United Methodist Church.  God is good, all the time!
