Jim Moles is starting a walking group. BEGINNING MARCH 31 If you would like to walk with church friends, meet at the south parking lot of Fairbanks Park, near the boat dock, just across from the YMCA at 10:00 Saturday morning. You can walk as fast or as slow as you like, as many laps as you like, there are lots of benches for resting, and we’ll be walking along the beautiful Wabash river. Kids are welcome, dogs are welcome, everyone of all ages is welcome. Come on out on Saturday mornings for some fresh air, exercise, conversation, and fun. If it rains, we’ll wait for better weather. Hope to see you!

FUNDRAISER FOR YOUTH SUMMER MISSION TRIP
Centenary Methodist is having a family fun night to raise funds for our Youth Group mission trip to Nashville, Tennessee and everyone that loves our joint youth group is invited!
It is on April 15 with an appetizer supper and live auction of gently used items.
As you are spring cleaning and come across an item that you no longer need but someone else would want/buy, please donate it to the auction.
All proceeds from the auction will benefit the mission trip expenses and reduce the cost that the families must cover.
Bring auction items to Centenary by 5 pm on April 15.
Please bring an appetizer to share – eating begins at 5:30 pm.
Live auction begins at 6:30 pm.
Please join the fun even if you don’t have an item to donate.
See Connor Scanlon for more information.
Watch for information on other upcoming youth fundraisers!
