95th, 100th, and 125th Anniversary
During the 125th Anniversary Celebration, we are archiving Centenary’s history on our church website at centenarydtla.org and on Centenary’s YouTube channel at bit.ly/3ice6gE.
See Centenary built right before your eyes from the vacant lot at the corner of 3rd and Central to the completion of the sanctuary in the 95th Anniversary Luncheon's video at youtu.be/LRsvHwczilo. Watch the video of Centenary’s 100th Anniversary Luncheon and see the thousand people who attended the celebration at the Bonaventure Hotel at youtu.be/FKy6G42Cwzk. We are indebted to Tom Saruwatari for creating the slide presentation that was seen during the 95th Anniversary Luncheon at the New Otani Hotel on October 27th, 1991 and taking the photographs of Centenary’s 100th Anniversary Celebration on October 20, 1996 which were used to create the YouTube video.
View Centenary’s Sunday service held on October 17, 2021, which officially kicked off the 125th Anniversary Celebration at youtu.be/XDdV5j6D8Ug. District Superintendent Rev. Mark Nakagawa was back at Centenary’s pulpit to introduce Bishop Sano and to give his reflections on the 125th Anniversary Celebration. Bishop Roy I. Sano delivered his live sermon on Zoom.
