Centerville UCC Sunday School Christmas Pageant

Thank you to all of our Sunday School students for the wonderful Christmas Pageant on Sunday, January 7. Their story of the many symbols of Christmas was enjoyed by all in attendance!


Thank you Rev. Cheryl Schmeling! 

Rev. Cheryl Schmeling has been serving as our interim minister these past few Sundays. We are thankful for her willingness to serve us as we wait for our new minister to arrive! Rev. Schmeling is pictured with the children of our church during “Children’s Time” in the worship service.



Dear Members & Friends of the Beresford-Centerville Joint Parish of the UCC

Dear Members & Friends of the Beresford-Centerville Joint Parish of the United Church of Christ,

December 10 is a pivotal day for our congregations; it’s Candidate Sunday, a day on which we’ll have a candidate conduct our joint worship service after which the members will vote to either accept him as our full-time minister (or not).  The day begins in the Beresford UCC @ 9:30 in the morning with a Joint Parish potluck brunch & candidate meeting time, followed by the Joint service @ 11:00 a.m.  Then the vote.  We’re hopeful.

 In the interim, we are fortunate to have Rev. Cheryl Schmeling, a retired Methodist minister, to be with us on Sundays, at least through December. She’s a treasure!





Thank you to Corrigan Johnke and his mother, Jennifer Johnke, for their special music on Sunday, June 25!

Corrigan played a wonderful piano solo while his mother both played the piano and sang an inspirational song! Thank you for sharing your talents with us! It is greatly appreciated!



Potato Fest 2017

We held our annual Baked Potato Fest on Sunday, April 9 and raised over $1,143.00! Thank you to everyone who attended and to those who provided the food and labor for the evening of fellowship!


At one point in time, the Welcome Hall was filled with guests enjoying their meal.








Lots of helpers are needed to pull off our Baked Potato Fest and you will see a few of them pictured serving refills of lemonade and all of the delicious toppings.

Volunteers help take money at the door while still others are needed to cut up the pies and other desserts for the dessert table. Lots of good choices!









And of course, there is always the cleanup and dish washing — and members willing to perform those duties!


Thank you to everyone for making the evening such a huge success! It is appreciated!
