Picture This - A New Portrait!
Sunday, November 11 • After both services
Ken Michaelchuck, our resident photographer who loves taking pictures which bring out the best aspects of your personality through his portraits, will again be taking pictures on the following Sunday mornings: November 4 and November 11. Ken will set up shop in the Community Room. By getting an updated photo taken, you keep our digital directory current. By taking a picture this time of year, you just might find you have taken a great picture for your holiday greetings as Ken loves to share the digital file or make a copy of the photo for you. Be sure to come to church ready to get a new picture taken on November 4 and November 11!
Sunday, November 18 • 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM • Meet at CUMC
Some things just go together. The 4th of July and fireworks. Peanut butter and jelly. Football and Thanksgiving! So bring your family, invite your friends and neighbors, and come hang out at CUMC on Sunday, November 18th from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (before the all church Thanksgiving meal) and play a little flag football! Meet at the CUMC parking lot. All ages are welcome! It is a great way to burn a few extra calories before eating your body weight in turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie at the All Church Thanksgiving Dinner. Sign up on the kiosk in Fellowship Hall if you wish to participate! Don’t want to play? No problem! Bring a lawn chair or a blanket and come cheer on the teams and have some fun!
Thanksgiving Dinner & Auction
Sunday, November 18 • 4:00 PM
On Sunday, November 18 at 4:00 p.m., our church will again host a traditional Thanksgiving Potluck Dinner. A sign up in Fellowship Hall for the food items needed to make it a great feast, and to indicate whether you are able to attend will be in Fellowship Hall in the next few weeks. To make the dinner as welcoming as possible, it is the joy and privilege of us all to invite and encourage everyone to attend. What can you do to help? During fellowship time over the next month, ask others if they are planning to attend. If not, encourage them to join us and let them know why it’s meaningful to you or your family. Come with a thankful heart, ready to show gratitude to the Lord for the privilege of gathering around the table with our church family – those who’ve been here for many years, as well as first-time guests!
After the dinner, we will also encourage everyone to stay and take part in the annual Dessert Auction. In addition to the fabulous desserts, you will have an opportunity to bid on other auction items. This is a fun part of our time together, with many folks bidding outrageously generous amounts . . . for the joy of giving and to benefit our ministries.
