Centenary Men's Fellowship
Are you a man in your mid-twenties, thirties or forties? Are you looking for a place to hang out with other men, learn about living your faith, and work together on service projects? Be our guest at the next Centenary Men's Fellowship meeting on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 8:00pm. In addition to fellowship and preparing for the next service project, we will have a speaker from the community to share with us about how he lives his faith in the everyday activities of life.

Centenary Men’s Group will be going to the UMAR Men’s Group Home to spend some time with the 5 men that live there, building and painting bird houses, and enjoying ice cream and snacks. As these men enjoy watching birds (and have enjoyed the bird feeder our group gave them for Christmas), we thought this would be a fun activity. The home is located at 4566 Shattalon Drive. If you would like to come to this event or if you have any questions, please email Joyner Edmundson (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Thad Brown (tbrown@MEDCOST.com). We hope you can make this fun event.

Samaritan's Inn of Winston-Salem is a men's shelter that operates year round. We are looking at volunteering to serve a lunch meal one day soon.
