2024 CENTyouth Summer Mission Trip

Who: All CENTyouth Students, grades 6 through 12.

What: We will be working with Raleigh Youth Mission (RYM) for this year's summer mission trip. We will participate in a weeklong Mission Immersion Experience that will include lodging, meals, service at various agencies, debriefing through Bible study, and group discussion time.

You can learn more about RYM here: LINK.

When: Sunday, July 21 through Friday, July 26.

Where: As you may have guessed by the name of the organization we are partnering with, we will be engaged in mission work in Raleigh, North Carolina. We will be staying at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Raleigh.

Registration and Cost: The cost to families will be staggered based on the number of students from that household who attend:

  • One student: $100.00
  • Two students: $75.00
  • Three or more students: $50.00

As the cost should not be a barrier to attendance. If the cost of your student(s) attending the mission trip would be a burden, please indicate that on the registration form.

Please register here: REGISTRATION LINK.

Because space is limited, registration will be first come, first serve. In order to make all necessary plans and arrangements, the deadline to register is Friday, May 17, 2024.

Please contact Pastor Tyler if you have any questions or concerns!

Summer Breakaway

Who: Breakaway is an event for all middle and high school youth (grades 6-12).

What: Breakway is a weeklong summer event for middle and high school youth. The theme will be “Life is a Jungle: Navigating a World of Change.” During Breakaway, we will grow in faith together as we anticipate God’s sustaining presence. Breakaway includes growth groups, legislative affairs, worship, small groups, siesta, missions, a talent show, a dance, a movie, and elections for youth leadership.

When: Monday, June 24 through Saturday, June 29.

Where: Breakway is held at North Carolina Wesleyan University in Rocky Mount, North Carolina.

Cost: The cost per child to attend this event is $400.00 and is set by the North Carolina Conference. Centenary is prepared to cover the cost of $300.00 per youth, which means the cost to each family will be $100.00. However, cost should not be a barrier to your child's attendance. If $100.00 per child is a barrier to your family, please indicate that on the registration form:


Registration is due by May 27, 2024.

CENTYouth Midweek Middle School Hangout

The Midweek Middle School Hangout continues throughout the spring semester! The last day for the Midweek Middle School Hangout will be Wednesday, May 22. Transportation will be provided as usual from Temple Christian Academy, H.J. MacDonald, and Grover C. Fields.

If your youth are interested in participating in the Midweek Middle School Hangout when we return in January, please sign up using the link below if you have yet to do so. The sign-up does not have to be filled out each week, nor does it commit your child to attending every week. It is designed to help us with planning and provide documentation that Centenary has permission to pick up your child from school.
