Have you heard? CUMC, along with Somerset Health and Kennebec Behavioral Health, is hosting a NEW YEARS EVE party from 6 – 10 p.m. We’ll have an outside bonfire, with hot dogs and hot chocolate outside. Inside you can get a picture taken at the photo booth, get some popcorn and more hot chocolate or other refreshment. There will also be games, and lots more fun. At 8, we’ll be featuring the movie “Up” – a great uplifting film for all ages. This is a FREE event! All are welcome. For more information, give us a shout! For other details go to the link below:
Come to this kid-friendly event December 6th and 7th, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. each night and view an amazing collection of Nativity sets, Angels and Lights!

Each night also features a special musical performance at 6 p.m.
You will also be able to enjoy hot cocoa, coffee, tea, milk and cookies – along with entertainment scheduled for each evening. You won’t want to miss it! What a great way to welcome in the Christmas season!
(This is a free event!!!)
Starting October 28, CUMC launches it’s next series called “Enough,” based on the book by Rev. Adam Hamilton. Here’s the general idea: Money has great power in our lives. Used wisely, it is one key to accomplishing our goals, providing for our needs, and fulfilling our life purpose. In recent years, many of us ignored the wisdom of the past when it came to managing and spending money. We wanted more – and more! And then we found ourselves spending tomorrow’s money today in order to have what we hoped would satisfy. The result was not greater happiness but instead greater stress and anxiety. “Enough” is an invitation to rediscover another way to live when it comes to finances. Join us for this 4-week series as we explore the keys to contentment and discover joy through simplicity and generosity.
Do Christians throw good parties? They certainly should – they are signs of the goodness and abundance and grace of God! Here’s a little taste of our party this coming Sunday! Check out this video for a taste….
Here’s part of the reason we’re doing this series – to build up the other line!
On May 20 we begin a new 6 week series called “Unafraid: Living with Courage and Hope,” based on the messages by Adam Hamilton. Here is a video you can share with friends and neighbors, inviting them to join us each weekend. I know that this series will have something for everyone – that all of us might live not overwhelmed by worry and fear, but live with hope and courage in the face of life’s challenges.
Have you ever heard the expression “a drop in the bucket?” How about “fly in the ointment?” Or “go the extra mile?” Each of these expressions are based on a Biblical story. The language of the Bible permeates our culture – and we often don’t even realize it.
More than giving us clever sayings, the Bible is filled with poetry, letters, and stories that can impact the way you feel and think about everything – and change your life. If you are just curious about this ancient text, or are interested in going deeper in your spiritual life, this series of messages is designed just for you.
Join us Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m.
Maundy Thursday: 7 p.m.
Friday Prayer Vigil: From 3 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Good Friday Service: 7 p.m.
Easter Sunrise Service (in sanctuary): 7 a.m.
