How can I help? This is the question that is heard/asked the most around the church. Well, as we navigate through new ideas and directions, we have lots of opportunities - and probably many more to come! Watch for announcements from the Council for committees or groups (some standing, some event specific), or projects that need leading or support. And, if you see a space where help is needed, we invite you to let Council know and/or jump right in with both feet. It takes many hands to do God's work, and we are so grateful for the ones we have at CUCC! *** Currently, we are looking for help with Community Outreach Activities/Events ***
Soup, SANDWICH & STUDY
Join us on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month - starting in October - for a potluck soup and sandwich supper, followed by a book study. The book study plans to meet each week, and will last approximately 12 weeks total. Feel free to come once, every week, or only for the food....this is a time for fellowship and fun, as well as an offering for adult education. There is a sign up sheet in the Fellowship Hall for the meals, but do not let food stop you from coming! Join us however you can, and sign up for next time!
Gathering Groups are coming back!
Do you want to talk to people at church outside of Sunday mornings? Do you maybe want get to know them a little better and learn about who they are, and/or share a little about who you are? Do you want to find out more about the life of the church? Do you just like to eat food? Well, then you might enjoy a Gathering Group!
