We're Back!!

We are excited to be meeting regularly again at CUMC.  We have implemented new safety guidelines (see below) and are on our way back to normal worship.  Even with our new seating arrangement in the sanctuary there is still room for more.  You are welcome to join us as soon as you are comfortable.  We have masks and hand sanitizer available at church.  

We look forward to seeing every one of you very soon!!

In the meantime we will be recording the services and posting the recordings to our website by 1PM on the same Sunday.

Well our outdoor service became an indoor service but is still was a really, really good show with a very good message about Joy!  (Think, Thank, Tell)

Missed out on Monte Carlson's juggling debut, but did get a picture of him modeling his new hat ;)

Mary Ann Christensen also got to play a part in handing Luke the "razor sharp" knives.  Glad she didn't seek revenge

for the purse snatching

Swing For Freedom

The Swing For Freedom golf tournament raised $27,000 for Wings of Refuge.  Wings did an online matching campaign in junction with the golf benefit and raised an additional $3000 so the total was an amazing $30,000 raised.  We had 108 golfers which was the limit and had over 30 sponsors both corporate, church and personal.   It was a record year since the previous two years total was $23,000.  

Our team consisted of Jeremy Britton, Kent Peterson, Dave & Micki Larsen, Pastor Buck, and Al Treloar.  They weathered driving rain and a lightning storm.  Despite the weather the event was

“fun but a test of

endurance and fortitude “

We did have some team

accolades, congratulations

to Micki Larsen for the

Longest Drive in the

Senior Division and to

Jeremy Britton and Kent

Peterson for second place

in the Men’s 3rd flight.  

What a great event for a

great cause.  Hope we can

participate again next year.
