Centre Grove to Celebrate an Anniversary!

Sunday, September 30, 2012 will mark exactly 50 years since the first worship service at our church on Village Road!

Fifty years ago, the Centre and Pleasant Grove Methodist churches joined together to create a new church, Centre Grove. We are planning a special day that will include a slideshow presentation of photos from over the years, especially the early years. We will incorporate some hymns from the groundbreaking and consecration services.

It looks to be a special day in the life of the church. You are invited to help us celebrate what God has done and also look toward the future with hope and anticipation!
