About Us

Two Churches?

So what are we?  Episcopalian?  Lutheran?  Luther-paleons?
Some of us are Episcopalian and some are Lutheran. Others are something in between. What is most important is that we are all Christians.  Our work is too important to remain separate. God has called us to important work in Centralia and beyond, and we are blessed to be able to do that work together. You may find that sharing a common mission is what you are looking for.  If you are curious, we invite you to visit us on Sunday at 11:30 am. 

Sunday Worship & Fellowship Hour

Our worship service is inclusive and interactive. It is rich and spirit filled.  We celebrate Communion each and every week. All are welcome.  On any given Sunday you may see neckties and dresses as well as shorts and sweatshirts. Whether you like to dress up or are more casual, just come as you are.  Stay for coffee and pastries afterward.

Brown Bag Bible Study

Once a week, we meet in the downstairs fellowship hall to eat lunch and dig into the Word.

Messy Church

Messy Church gathers on the First Sunday of Each Month at 5:00 pm in our downstairs fellowship hall in a comfortable coffeehouse setting. We spend about 90 minutes eating, working on a craft or messy project, and having fun with things like music and a puppet show. It is open to everyone such as: kids and adults, young and old, members and non-members, reserved or outgoing, confident or curious.

Strawberry Festival Ice Cream Social

Every year, we select a Sunday evening during strawberry season to host an ice cream social for anyone who wants to join us.

Vacation Bible School

We are one of the Centralia Covenent Churches that team up to offer a free Vacation Bible School for kids from all participating churches and the whole community. It lasts 5 evenings and includes dinner and a snack.


Our church building is on a street that gets pretty busy on Trick-or-Treat night. That means that we are there providing hot chocolate and coffee with hot dogs for the kids and parents walking through our neighborhood.

CCBA Food Pantry

We are a contributing member of the Centralia Community Benevolent Association Food Bank that provides free supplement food for individuals and families in the Centralia, Ilinois area. The Food Bank is located at 508 North Poplar in Centralia.
