New church resembles the old in Century

Like many residents of Century the congregation at Century United Methodist Church saw their lives turned upside down in February, 2015, when a tornado roared through the town and literally knocked the 113-year old church off its foundation.

While the physical foundation of the church was destroyed, the foundation of its members stayed strong. The original church was built in 1902 and has had to endure a fire, two hurricanes and a tornado.

At 2 p.m. this Sunday, Feb. 24, the community is invited to a service dedication and open house on the reconstructed church at 530 Church St.
