Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box Packing Event

Each October through mid-November, Centreville UMC collects small gifts and monetary support to send gifts to children in need around the world through Operation Christmas Child.  The donation collection process culminates with a shoe box packing event in the Fellowship Hall.

Sock Hop

Every winter, elementary-aged children are invited to a Sock-Hop Dance, Pizza and Ice cream Social.  Children enjoy an evening of dancing, while helping the local homeless population by donating adult socks to those in need.
