Ingathering Collection for May


We are gathering for Personal Dignity Kits

  -toothpaste (2.5 oz or larger)


We are gathering for School Kits

  - 12 pack of colored pencils


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.
