 The 2015 Offering Envelopes are now available on
the table in the hallway. If you don’t see a set and
would like one, please call the church office. If you
give electronically, you don’t need a set, as it ers self-improvement programs and United Methodist Voluntary Services community advocacy projects. Your gifts on Human Relations Day will support an outreach program of Theressa Hoover United Methodist Church in Little Rock, Ark. The church sponsors a residential and out-patient program for men and women with addictions. Graduates of the program participate in an eight-week course that provides training for unemployed or underemployed people. The offering also supports Exodus House, a ministry in Oklahoma that helps former prisoners to receive the emotional, spiritual and physical support they need to make it on their own. Please give generously on Human Relations Day. Thank you!

The Joy of Music

Our very own church band, Leap of Faith, has CD’s available.  Suggested donation is $10.  It truly is a joy to hear!  See Ron DiCesare, Christine Jordan, or Philip Jordan to pick up one.

(Middle/High School Camp)

The excitement is building! Only a couple of months until we leave to serve as the hands and feet of Christ to those in need, this year in, Eliot, ME and Lincoln, RI! We continue to invite any youth or adult (don’t have to be a United Methodist) to come with us. Youth must have completed 7th grade by this summer for the Middle/High School Camp and be one year beyond High School graduation for the Young Adult Camp. So invite your friends, talk to your neighbors. It is not too late!!!

Besides personally attending and/or providing tools and supplies (list to be posted in May), there are other needs to help make this camp truly successful. Of course PRAYER is top on this list. Please keep the team and the potential clients in your prayers throughout the upcoming months. 

 There are other ways you can help listed below:


• Gas Money – for the car ride up, during, and back.

• Lunch for the Ride up- $10 per person

• Lunch for the Ride back- $10 per person

• One Night During the week for Dinner out- $10 per person

• Donate a Meal to the Camp- Breakfast ($100), Lunch ($150), Dinner ($250)

• Ice for the Camp - any amount would help; we need lots of it!

• Money to buy First Aid Kits - $30 per kit (5 Kits)

• Money for any supplies not donated - any amount would help

Anything you could contribute to these funds would be greatly appreciated. Please send donations to the church to the attention of Pastor Roy or Gina Grubbs. If you have any questions please feel free to stop by/call the church or call Pastor Roy (914)-330-1789. Thank you for supporting our mission!

The Men's Group is Back!!

THE MEN'S GROUP IS BACK…Following a brief hiatus during the ALPHA program the stout-hearted men of CUMC are back with an even larger Men's Group currently totaling over 11 enthusiastic guys ready to continue this very successful program.  It was decided to hold the meetings on Wednesdays at 7:00 PM instead of early mornings, which affords more opportunity for new members to join. They have a great time reading and discussing books with a focus on men in relation to God, family and just about everything else.  They have fun, fellowship, lively discussions, and learn more about God and life at the same time.  Besides brains they use brawn to sponsor Church events such as the recent Tom Adams Annual Blessing of the Animals Day.  Tom was an inspirational member of the group and mentor to all of them in so many ways. For any of you guys who wish to learn more about them and hopefully join the group please see John Henderson or Frank Lehmann.  You certainly will not regret it.

Centerport United Methodist Church is a welcoming, family-friendly worshipping community.  In addition to worship services, we offer spiritual formation and Christian Education for children, youth and adults.  


We have an active and growing Sunday School and youth group.  There are multiple and varied opportunities to live out your faith in the local community and the world.  


To date, our members come from Centerport,

Greenlawn, Huntington, Northport, East Northport,

Cold Spring Harbor, Syosset, Fort Salonga 

and Kings Park.
