Welcome to Centennial United Methodist Church!

May the road you take lead you to our doors where you will always be welcome.


Our Vision

Our vision at Centennial is to help people who hurt to find healing, those who are lonely find friendship, and those who grieve find comfort.  Together, through God’s grace, we shall discover the joy in life, as followers of Jesus Christ.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to bring lost souls to the love of Jesus Christ.

From the Pastor’s Desk

Rev. Rudolph H. White, Jr., Pastor

As the pastor of Centennial United Methodist Church, I want to officially invite you and your family to join us in worshiping our risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. From the time that you enter into our handicap accessible sanctuary until the time that you leave, I promise you an experience to remember. Our warm and friendly ushers will greet and escort you to a place where you are guaranteed to encounter God.

Centennial, which was founded in 1876, provides Christ-centered and biblically based ministries to Smyrna, Delaware and surrounding areas. Here at Centennial, we offer opportunities for a deeper and richer relationship with Christ. Through our model of in-reach (spiritual nurture), up-reach (worship), and out-reach (community service) we are equipping the people of God with the whole armor of God to proclaim the Word of God.

It is my sincere hope that you will be inspired to visit our community of faith. I am fully convinced that you will find our approach to ministry edifying for your soul.

Be blessed and I’ll see you soon,

Rev. Rudolph H. White, Jr., Pastor
