ANNOUNCEMENTS SUNDAY JUNE 9, 2013
Our Stephen Ministers are Ready to Care for You!
We all go through times in our life when we could benefit from a little extra care and attention. That’s what Stephen Ministers are for. Stephen Ministers are members of Centenary who have been trained to provide confidential, one-to-one, Christian care to people who are going through a difficult time. They will listen, care, encourage, pray with you and for you, and provide regular support for you as your need persists. If you would like to find out more about Stephen Ministry for yourself or someone you know (possibly a friend, neighbor, coworker, or relative) talk with Bob Nations (397-1357). Our Stephen Ministers are ready to bring God’s love and care into your life.

Children’s Worship and Nursery Care
We offer children’s worship each Sunday during the 11 am worship service. After beginning as a part of the larger worship service with their families, kindergarten through third grade are invited to join Rev. Kate May in the Dining Room. Children will return to the Sanctuary after the sermon. Parents are asked to pick up their children from their reserved pews once worship concludes. Attending children’s worship is optional; children are always welcome to remain in the adult worship service.
Nursery care for infants through pre-kindergarten is offered during every Sunday morning worship service. During the 11:00 am worship service, 3's and 4's in the nursery have a time of engaged Bible storytelling led by children’s ministry staff. Our nursery classrooms, staffed by professional childcare workers, are located on the second floor of the children’s building.
Family Movie Night
June 13 • 6:00 pm
Join us for Dolphin Tales in the dining room! It is a great movie inspired by a true story of a dolphin who was rescued off the Florida coast after her tail became caught in a crab trap, this uplifting family-oriented adventure details the unique bond between an injured dolphin and a young boy. It is a story that inspires hope and courage. Feel free to bring your dinner to the movie, along with a blanket to spread on the floor or a comfy chair. The church will provide popcorn!
