Mark your Calendars!!!  Caring Committee has another lunch planned for Tuesday, June 20th at 11:30.  In addition to a great lunch we will follow that with some familiar games, such as dominos, cribbage, cards etc.  If you have a particular game you enjoy just let us know or bring the game along with you.  Let’s see if we can have the largest crowd ever for this event!  It doesn’t matter if you are attending CUMC or not, you are all welcome to join us.  If you need a ride let us know.  We will provide transportation for you.  Please RSVP to the church 641-672-2564. The Education Committee is working with the Caring Committee to determine the needs for a service project in June that all ages can be involved with like picking up sticks, pulling weeds, etc. Listen for announcements and watch for emails with more details. Prayer Chain   Just a reminder, we all can all use prayers in for our lives or the lives of our loved ones.  Prayer is a powerful tool.  The church does have a prayer chain that is activated when someone calls the office with a prayer request.  We want you to know that these prayers are confidential and those of us on the chain will be praying for you, but not talking about you.  This also means that your prayer request will not be automatically announced in church during the prayer time unless you request it be. It you would like to be a part of this vital ministry, please contact Suzy in the church office, and she will add you to the prayer chain email list.  We recommend when you receive a prayer request you act upon it right away, as sometimes if we wait until “prayer” time (before meals, before going to bed, first thing in the morning) we may forget.

Do “You” have a giving heart, a desire to help, a free morning, afternoon, day or weekend?

   CUMC’s newly established Caring Committee is considering having a “Helping Hand Week” and wonder is we have members of the congregation that would be willing to lend a hand to those in our church family and community that need assistance. We are thinking of small, easy to complete tasks such as spring or fall lawn clean-up, painting, window washing, moving heavy items, minor handyman repairs etc. Before we go forward with this we want to make sure we have members in our congregation that would be willing to commit? If this is something you or your family would be interested in doing, please contact Lisa at Proverbs 11:25 states “Generous persons will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.”
