Here is a letter to our church family from a member.

“Church Family,

My sister, Cindy, is the Director of Nursing at the Accura Health Center here in Ogden.  Per one of our conversations I asked her how the residents were handling no visitors.  She answered they are doing good, but maybe your church could send them letters or cards.  I told her I would try to get the word out.  Not sure if it could be put on the website, or an email, or whatever.  I know that they would be grateful.

                                           Thank you,

                                           Pat E. “

Ingathering Collection for March


We are gathering for Personal Dignity Kits

  -nail clippers (no files or emory boards)


We are gathering for School Kits

  - single subject notebooks (3 per school bag)


Ingathering is a way that United Methodists gather goods, supplies, cleaning materials and more and deliver them to people who are in need.

We are trying something new this year for our Ingathering Kits.  We will be collecting 1 or 2 items each month. 

There is a collection bin in the Courtyard

See above for items collected this month.

If you are concerned about dropping off items, no worries.  You can bring items that you have already purchased anytime.  You DO NOT need to bring items to church in the month that they were asked for.  Stay home and stay safe.

CUMC Church Directory

The Church Directory is underway. 

We have some great pictures from Terri. 

You are welcome to view the proofs in the courtyard and order some for your personal use.  

We hope to have another opportunity to take pictures again later in the spring.

Please update the office of any family changes.
