Sta. Ana Adventist Church, the first Seventh-day Adventist Church in the Philippines, celebrates it's centennial anniversary on March 2-16, 2011.  The theme for its 100th year is- "Celebrating God's love, goodness, grace, and mercy."  Hundreds of Adventists from all over the Philippines have visited and together celebrated with the members of this church. Several former members of this church that live in foreign land have once again come back for fellowship with the rest of the current members.
The program started with the Public Evangelism and Revival Meetings by Pastor Ely Magtanong who was once a little boy during the middle years of this church. It was held nightly at 7-9 p.m. from March 2-10, 2011.

On March 6, 2011 at 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the church together with the North Philippine Union Conference headed by Lalaine Alfanoso sponsored a Medical-Dental Free Clinic. Many people attended and received free concultations, lectures, and medicines.

The Vesper Service was next to it and the speaker is Pastor Romeo Mangiliman, the new elected President of the Central Luzon Conference for year 2011-2016.

On March 12, 2011, the Sabbath School program started at 9 a.m. and there were only few vacant seats left inside while many were already seated in mono-block chairs outside the church. The person in-charge of the Sabbath School program is Eileen Regoso.  The praise team started the program and they are Lizen Aquino, FJ Mateo, Joven Custodia, Neven Abay Abay as the Song Leaders and Franky Yoshua Sumaga as the Pianist.  The opening prayer was led by Ernie Ezpeleta and the welcome remarks was given by Olympia Brillantes.  Special song number by Lorenz Comilang was next and it's entitled "One More Voice".  Special feature was given by Tony Nantes Guevarra and the lesson study entitled "Freedom from Addictions" was lead by the sisters Eileen Regoso and Flor Guevara.  The proram was closed by a prayer of Joe Ada.
