Join a Small Group Ministry

Chancel Choir

Do you love to sing? Does your heart swell when you hear familiar and new Christian-themed songs? Then we invite you to consider joining our Chancel Choir. The choir sings many Sundays throughout the school year, taking a hiatus during the summer months. Choir practice is weekly on Wednesday evenings and is full of music, fellowship, and fun. If you would like to lend your voice to this joyous group, please contact the Choir Director, Sharon Clark, through the church office or any Sunday after worship.

Food Pantry

Are you interested in helping those in need? Do you like to talk and interact with people? Do you have a compassionate heart? Well, then you should check out our food pantry! Our food pantry serves the residents of the Centreville/Nottawa community, including over 200 people every month. The pantry is open on Mondays and Fridays from 10:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M., as well as on the second Thursday of every month from 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. If you are interested in helping out please contact the church office for more information.

Stephens Ministries

Are you looking for a friend who will visit you, listen to you, and offer Christian support? Our Stephen Caring Friends reach out to members of the church, as well as the wider community, with unconditional caring in times of stress and crisis, big and small. If you would like a Stephen Caring Friend, or if you know of someone who needs such a friend, please see Pastor Michael or contact the church office. Or, if you would like to join the ministry efforts of our Stephen Caring Friends and go and visit with people, please contact Pastor Michael or the church office for more information.

Writers Group

The Centreville United Methodist Church Writer’s Group is a small group that meets for one hour, once a week, except for the month of December.

We gather our courage and our experiences so that we might find fellowship in sharing the gifts God has given us in our words and each other. We are not strict on form and appreciate each contributor’s unique style. Writing is a craft and writing is therapy. Writing is good for the soul. Some of us write seriously, some of us write to record our histories, some write because it helps us to process and heal.

A typical group meeting is made up of timed writing prompts. They are anything from biblical, to personal, journaling to complete fiction.

If you are interested in more information or are thinking of visiting, please email Shone Rhyner at
