Church Calendar
In case you haven’t noticed, we’re now printing the calendar every week for you to hang on your fridge (or wherever works for you,) to keep up-to-date on all the happenings here at CUMC!



Please check here for any future community events!


Thank you to everyone who donated items for
our Mitten Tree. Linda Avallone was able to deliver
14 pairs of children and 22 pairs of adult gloves and
mittens to Family Service League because of your
 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.

Revelation Study 

Beginning September 22

The PROTESTANT REVOLT STUDY has wrapped up their class, but they’re offering a new study…


REVELATION STUDY - The next bible study will feature Dr. David Jeremiah, who does what no prophecy expert has done before.  He explores the book of Revelation through the lens of its major players—the exiled, the martyrs, the elders, the victor, the king, the judge, the 144,000, the witnesses, the false prophet, and the beast.  It promises to be an exciting and meaningful 10 week study, starting Tuesday, September 22 at CUMC 7-9 pm.  It runs 10 weeks, with video and discussions each night.  Please sign up so we order the right amount of materials.

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.

Upcoming Events



We have a date to work on a house here on LI in honor of Ethel Abbott!  It is Saturday, September 26 - so SAVE THAT DATE!!! We will be building at 58 Lake Drive in Wyandanch. We'll let you know when there are more details, or you can speak with Laura Perks or Doris Henderson directly.




Fall is here. It's the perfect time to clean out that the clutter in your attic, garage and basement. Why? You can bring most of that stuff to Men's World at our Santaport Fair. If it's got a plug, takes batteries, emits sounds or light, is a tool of any kind, we'll take it. We take sports equipment, small appliances, computers, TVs, printers, blenders, light fixtures, etc. If you're not sure if we'll take it, bring it; we'll take it.



Ann Palazzolo is again graciously volunteering to run the Jewelry Room for Santaport - yes, we now that’s not till November 21 (mark your calendar), but she wants to get a head start on cleaning, pricing, and sorting.  So if you have any jewelry you no longer want, please feel free to bring it down to the church and leave it on the counter in the office.  

White Elephant Items - you know what these are!

Toy donations - saleable condition only please!

Silent Auction Treasures


Please bring your items to CUMC the week before the Fair, but if you cannot hold onto them until then, please take all Men's World, White Elephant and Toy donations directly up to the attic.


THE MEN'S GROUP has returned on Wednesday mornings at 7:30 AM.  All men are invited to attend!  Contact Frank Lehmann or John Henderson to find out more about this group!



If you have a college student, please email their current physical address at school and their most used email address to the church office.  We use these addresses to keep in touch with them while they are at college (even if they are home and commute) through our College Care Program.  This program is headed up by Lynn Murphy, so you can speak with her if you have any questions.  Monetary donations are accepted for this program at any time - it helps to defray the cost of the items we send them, as well as the cost of shipping.

Church Directory Update

We are in the process of putting a new church directory together (in house).  If you would like a photo of you or your family included, please get it to the church office at your earliest convenience.  You can email, mail, or drop it off.   Thanks!


During the months of January to June, various Ministry Teams are assigned a month to host our weekly coffee hour. During the months of July to December, EVERYONE is welcome to join in the fun. 


Come to Wesley Hall 45 minutes  early to set up, bring milk and a snack (store bought is fine) and stay to clean up.  If you recruit the help of a friend, is it even more fun!!!   There is a "Coffee" sign-up sheet in the Narthex. 


Detailed "coffee hour hosting" instructions are typed up and laminated and posted inside one of   the cabinets in Wesley Hall. Barbara Roiland is ready and willing to help you learn all the "ins and outs" of hosting.  The mysteries of the kitchen will finally be unveiled!!
