This is our first message in the series “Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations.” This series, based on the work of Robert Schnase, highlights the basic practices of healthy, vital and fruitful congregations. Our hope is that each of us can take another step in embodying these characteristics for the common good.
Beginning Friday, September 6th from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m., CUMC will launch its new opportunity to gather. It’s called “heARTS Alive!” This is a branch of the church, a faith community which celebrates the arts in order to interact with the area towns by creating a positive environment, strengthening community interaction, discovering and expressing each person’s creativity.
Every first Friday of the month, all are welcome to come and explore your creative side. We do ask that all children be accompanied by an adult, but this is open to all – and it is FREE! One month we might be painting, another we might be working with clay or some other medium and another month something else!
Want to know more? Or have a great idea that the group might do? Then contact Lori at email@example.com. See you in September!

Starting Sunday June 9th, CUMC will begin a new series of messages on the Gospel of Mark. This book is a book about Jesus. Like a biography. The author, possibly Mark, wants to introduce and commend Jesus to his readers, and does so by telling the story of Jesus’ life, death and teachings. But this is not just any story. This is not just any biography. The books points to something more – something important is going on – a higher purpose to life. In this series, we’l explore this book and look for that purpose. And in the process, we may even discover a deeper purpose for our now lives. Join us!
We finish our series looking at a variety of scriptures based on “one another,” with a look this week at Christian hospitality. Enjoy!
This is our second to last message featuring different “one another” verses from the Christian scriptures. This week we look to one of those that has the power to change lives around us – by just a few simple words or actions on our part. Enjoy.
A core practice of Christian community, and one of the most challenging, is forgiveness. This message is the next in our series in which we look at the various “one another’s” in Christian scripture, and our call to embody a very different kind of community. Enjoy
This is our first message in our new series “Authentic Community” where we will look at 6 different “one another’s,” exploring what it means to live as a community that follows the way of Jesus.
