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
 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.

Do you know why you believe what you believe? Come and learn…PROTESTANT REVOLT: A STUDY OF THE PROTESTANT REFORMATION

The modern beliefs and traditions of our church stem from those Reformation events that occurred over 500 years ago. Come and learn why you stand where you stand.  With a world class team of scholars, pastors, and theologians, Dr. Peter Lillback leads us through an eye-opening journey around the world. From Luther's Germany and Calvin's Geneva to Spain, England, Scotland, and beyond to America, our modern society, economy, government, and church, have their roots in the Reformation. Here we can clearly see how the Reformation shaped the world we live in today.  We will meet on Tuesday nights at CUMC starting June 9 for 10-12 weeks from 7 - 9 pm.  There is no "homework" and there are videos each week. There is still time to come and learn!


DISCIPLE - And in the fall we MIGHT have another Disciple class.  If you Might be interested, if you MIGHT want information, if you Might be inclined to check it out, then you MIGHT want to sign up on the sheet in the Narthex so you don’t miss anything!  Barbara and Gary Roiland facilitate a very informative and meaningful class.  

All are welcome to attend - it’s for those who’ve read the Bible for years and those who’ve never opened a Bible and everyone in between - 

you will always learn something new.

Our 2nd UM Army trip leaves this Sunday after church, but we can still use some help!! Please see UM Army Ways to Donate on the Helpful Links page.

Ann Palazzolo is again graciously volunteering to run the Jewelry Room for Santaport - yes, we now that’s not till November 21 (mark your calendar), but she wants to get a head start on cleaning, pricing, and sorting.  So if you have any jewelry you no longer want, please feel free to bring it down to the church and leave it on the counter in the office.  Thank you!


The Men's group is on Summer Hiatus, but please consider joining them when they start up again in September!

Church Directory Update

We are in the process of putting a new church directory together (in house).  If you would like a photo of you or your family included, please get it to the church office at your earliest convenience.  You can email, mail, or drop it off.   Thanks!


During the months of January to June, various Ministry Teams are assigned a month to host our weekly coffee hour. During the months of July to December, EVERYONE is welcome to join in the fun. 


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, is it even more fun!!!   There is a "Coffee" sign-up sheet in the Narthex. 

If you sign up for the month of August, you don't have to make coffee, just lemonade.        

Detailed "coffee hour hosting" instructions are typed up and laminated and posted inside one of   the cabinets in Wesley Hall. Barbara Roiland is ready and willing to help you learn all the "ins and outs" of hosting.  The mysteries of the kitchen will finally be unveiled!!
