How to join First-Centenary

We welcome anyone who wishes to join First-Centenary as a means of living out the gospel of Jesus Christ.  When joining, we ask each person to commit to being faithful to the church by their prayers, presence, gifts, service, and their witness.  We do recommend that persons wishing to join attend "Coffee with the Pastor" or meet with one of our ministers.  We also periodically offer a class on Methodism for anyone who would like more information on The Methodist Church. If you are interested in joining or would like to ask questions about joining, please contact Debbie Donohue, Director of Congregational Development, at 756-2021 or

Coffee with the Pastor

Periodically, we have "Coffee with the Pastors" during which those who are visiting First-Centenary can have an opportunity to learn more about the church and what it means to join First-Centenary.  Dr. Mark Gooden and Rev. Will Lauderback talk about the history of the church, membership vows, and how we can get involved.  Coffee, tea and hot chocolate, along with something light, are usually served. 

The date of the next Coffee with the Pastors is August 18, 2019, at 11:45 in the Parlor. For more information, contact Debbie Donohue at or 423-756-2021.
