Asher Irfan Saroia, who has been a part of Centenary's church family for the last few years, is looking for a single room to rent and a used Apple laptop computer. He would prefer a room where he can share a kitchen to prepare his meals. He can afford to pay $500 per month rent. The computer should be no more than several years old and in good working condition.  Asher's current Mac computer has become obsolete and is now only good for data storage.  A newer model will help him to better prepare for the job market. If you know of anyone who can assist Asher with either of these requests, please let Pastor Sooah know. Thank you.    


Centenary's long-time member, Sharon Webb (Austin Banks' Goddaughter), has a wheelchair, hospital bed, and Hoyer lift, and she would like to give them to someone who has a need. All are in good shape and paid for. If you are interested in it or if you know someone who needs them, please let Pastor Sooah know.

Celebration of Found Cans


Centenary continues its collection of non-perishable food items twice weekly to help “Replenish” (formerly the Middlesex County Food Network) make a dent in food insecurity! Collection at Centenary takes place on Wednesdays and Sundays from 9:30 a.m. – noon. The collection bin is located at Centenary’s front door; just drop off an item or two (or more)!

Centenary – “The Friendly Church On the Hill” – is located at 200 Hillside Avenue in Metuchen. All are welcome!
