It's Super Bowl Weekend and a perfect time to help with SouperBowl of Caring!
The SouperBowl of Caring is a way for youth to be involved in helping those in need in their local communities. Through the first Sunday in Lent, March 1 st , there will be a table outside of the Asbury Room for canned goods and monetary donations should be made out to CUMC with SouperBowl of Caring in the memo line and should be placed on the secretary’s desk in the office. Please email Kate Ziegler at so she may keep a tally of the donations.  There is a special need for the following food products:

Do you know what a Confirmand Knows?
We likened the Holy Trinity to three equal strands of rope that, when braided together, represent God. How does the intertwining of the Creator, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit fit with your understanding of the Trinity? Do you think all parts of the Trinity were present at creation? In Genesis God said, “Let us make humans in our own image.” Could the us be the Trinity? What adjectives would you use to describe God?
Seeking Candle Makers!
Are you a candle maker or do you know someone who is? We have hundreds of gently and briefly used small white candles from our Christmas Eve services. Rather than discard them, we would like to give them to someone who could recycle and reuse them. Please contact Tom Kitson or the church office.
