THE MITTEN TREE
Thank you to everyone who donated items for
our Mitten Tree. Linda Avallone was able to deliver
14 pairs of children and 22 pairs of adult gloves and
mittens to Family Service League because of your
generosity!
2015 OFFERING ENVELOPES
 The 2015 Offering Envelopes are now available on
the table in the hallway. If you don’t see a set and
would like one, please call the church office. If you
give electronically, you don’t need a set, as it ers self-improvement programs and United Methodist Voluntary Services community advocacy projects. Your gifts on Human Relations Day will support an outreach program of Theressa Hoover United Methodist Church in Little Rock, Ark. The church sponsors a residential and out-patient program for men and women with addictions. Graduates of the program participate in an eight-week course that provides training for unemployed or underemployed people. The offering also supports Exodus House, a ministry in Oklahoma that helps former prisoners to receive the emotional, spiritual and physical support they need to make it on their own. Please give generously on Human Relations Day. Thank you!



The Joy of Music

Our very own church band, Leap of Faith, has CD’s available.  Suggested donation is $10.  It truly is a joy to hear!  See Ron DiCesare, Christine Jordan, or Philip Jordan to pick up one.

FELLOWSHIP

 

December


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

HOSTING FELLOWSHIP 

 It’s kind of like a small finger food party with family.  Just a few snacks, coffee, tea, and lemonade. See or contact  Cathy McGoldrick.

Requirements:                          

 

Come to Wesley Hall 45 minutes  early to set up, bring milk and a snack (store bought is fine) and stay to clean up.  If you recruit the help of a friend, it is even more fun!!!   There is a "Coffee" sign-up sheet in the Narthex. 

 

Detailed "coffee hour hosting" instructions are typed up and laminated and posted inside one of the cabinets in Wesley Hall.



Advent Reading Materials


Advent reading material for all ages is now 

available on a table in the hallway.

Welcome Assistant Pastor 
Brinna Kolitz!
Please see the Staff Page for further information on CUMC's new addition to ministry!
