Church Calendar

3rd Annual Tom Adams Blessing of the Animals

was held on April 23rd on the back lawn of the church. Despite the weather, many animals brought their humans and came to be blessed.

Check out the picture of one of the events from that lovely day!

Pony rides were enjoyed by many!
In case you haven’t noticed, we’re now printing the calendar every week in the bulletin for you to hang on your fridge (or wherever works for you,) to keep up-to-date on all the great happenings here at CUMC!
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


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, is it 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. 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!!

The Food Council accepts non-perishable food items all through the year -  not just at holidays.  If you can pick up a few things each time you are at the grocery store, we’ll be able to help our local food pantries help our neighbors. If you're at Costco or Sam's Club, add a case of food to your order. If you are unsure what to pick up here are some suggestions found in a recent online article…

 

So What Are the Best Foods to Donate?

 

This year, make a healthy difference in others' lives by giving nutrient-rich foods (a good rule of thumb: If you wouldn't want to feed it to your family, don't give it as a donation). Start with these nutritious non-perishables:

• Whole grain pastas and cereals

•Rolled oats

•Quinoa

•Brown rice

•Nuts (like almonds and walnuts)

•Canned beans and lentils

•Low-sodium broth

•Fruit canned in 100% fruit juice

•Canned tuna, chicken, or salmon

•Non-hydrogenated nut butters

•Dried fruit

•Canned pumpkin or yams


THE MEN'S GROUP has returned on Wednesday mornings at 7:30 AM.  All men are invited to attend!  Contact Frank Lehmann or John Henderson to find out more about this group!
