Damaged by busted pipes over a year ago, the Centennial United Methodist Church finally has something to celebrate.
The congregation and many visitors attended the church rededication service after extensive repairs were made to the building.
With so much water damage there was a lot that needed to be fixed in the building that was built in the early 60s. The church itself was established in 1930.
Several fundraisers were held and donations from various organizations and people help to finance the remodeling of the building. A total makeover of the building included a new ceiling, new lighting, new flooring, painting in the sanctuary and new doors.
The overflowing crowd enjoyed the service that included music by the Wesley Praise Team from Troy, remarks from Pastor Cockrell, reading of the scripture by Pastor D.E. Roam, remarks by Charlene Williams and associate, and a sermon on “Who Is This God” from guest speak Rev. Dr. Henry Brewer Sr.
After the rededication service the congregation and guests enjoyed a meal at the Libby Clark Fellowship Hall.
