SEEKERS

Thursday Morning Bible Study

ADVENT STUDY

Seekers Bible Study group will begin an Advent Study on Thursday, December 3rd at 10:00 am in the Church Library.  What an opportunity for us to remember the strange and wonderful time when light split the night and God became one of us.  If there is interest in a Zoom Advent study please contact Evelyn at lewiston@netins.net

and see if that is an opportunity.  The book includes questions, scriptures, and additional readings to help us along the way. 

The books are $7 each but if someone wants to be a part of the group without purchasing a study guide it is possible. 

Harvest of Blessings

It may have looked different but a delicious meal was prepared and shared with many people in our church and community!  After expenses we will be able to split close to $1,300 between Women at the Well (the church within the walls of Mitchellville prison) AND with needs in the local area.  Many people volunteered to advertise, serve, deliver, and provide.  A special thanks to Jackie and Curtis Jens for their leadership again this year! 

Mission Statement:
Coming together with love; Uniting for fellowship and prayer; 
Ministering to our community as disciples of Christ.

Mission Focus:

To help those of our church and community to KNOW GOD better,  LOVE GOD more passionately and SERVE GOD more fully.

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.  We will also be Live Streaming the services.  Go to the Live Stream tab
