Centenary United Methodist Church (UMC) will hold a “September Song” event on Sunday, September 19 from 4-6 p.m. in the church’s outdoor pavilion. By popular demand, the local talent Tapestry will be their band that afternoon.
The event is free of charge. Masks are not required as everything is outside but are welcomed. However, if weather were to move the event indoors, mask will be required.
While in the past it has been a series of music of crafts spanning three Sunday afternoons, the popular September Song outdoor concerts presented by Centenary UMC will be the abbreviated version of one Sunday event because of the uncertainty of COVID-19 status.
They will serve concessions again this year, including hamburgers, hot dogs, brats and homemade pies. They will be following Morgan County Health Department regulations in effect at the time of event. Also available will be an order booth for fall-colored t-shirts in honor of the church’s 200th anniversary celebration, plus beautiful brass Christmas ornaments to help raise funds for their Bell Project.
Please plan to attend and bring a friend … or several. Concertgoers might bring lawn chairs to set up on the covered concrete floor in the pavilion. Restrooms are also available within the pavilion. Centenary UMC is located at 331 E. State St. in Jacksonville. The newer pavilion is outside on the south side of the church and was completed in early 2019.
