Welcome to Centenary United Methodist Church's web site!  We invite you to look around our web site to become more familiar with the numerous opportunities for fellowship and worship that Centenary has to offer. If you're not currently a member of our church, we'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to one of our weekly services. And of course, feel free to reach out and contact our pastor.

We hope you and your family will have a warm and spirit-filled experience with us as we worship and fellowship together at our services, events, and ministries.

At this site, you will learn about Centenary, the wide array of program offerings and the many people who make up this loving church family.

Centenary is part of the LaMoine River District of the Illinois Great Rivers Conference of the United Methodist Church. This district is formed of the eighty-eight congregations in the area bordered by the Mississippi River on the west and Route 136 on the north. The eastern boundary is mainly along route 267 (but also includes other communities such as Rushville and Carlinville) and Jerseyville to the south.

This western curve of the state has a rich tradition of Methodism with heritage that includes spiritual leaders like pioneer circuit rider Peter Cartwright and Peter Akers.
