No Wednesday Night Live this week. Wednesday Night Live will resume on Nov. 29. The meal is served at 6 p.m. Please call or email the church office by noon on Tuesday, so we have a meal for you, and let us know if you would like it packaged to-go. The cost is $10 for adults, with reduced prices for children. The menu for Nov. 29 is smothered steak, side, salad, and drink. I've included a link to November's menu below.


The nursery is back open! We are thankful for God’s healing power on our childcare coordinator, Kim Rickman. She would love to see little ones and your friendly faces welcoming her back. If you have a moment, go by the nursery to say hello!

Join the Advent Sunday School Group by notifying the church office. The group will meet on the first four Sundays of December. The Sunday school group will use the study guide, Almost Christmas, which explores how we can break down the barriers that prevent us from experiencing love, hope, joy, and peace in Christ in our lives and the world around us.

The CUMC and St. Andrew Sunday School Classes are very popular, and everyone is welcome to attend. The Friendship Sunday School Class is studying

Amos 5:21-24 on Sunday from the book Favorite Bible Passages. Lew will lead the lesson. The Class on Spirituality is still using Richard Rohr’s book Things Hidden.

Due to the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, the Women's Bible Study, Sacred Encounters, has changed the meeting dates in November and December to the dates below.

Tuesday, November 21 at 10:30 am. Quita Russell to lead Lesson 3.

Tuesday, December 19 at 10:30 am. Jackie Farmer to lead Lesson 4

This Saturday at 10 a.m., please serve in preparing for the Hanging of the Greens. Volunteers are needed to unbox Christmas items that will be used in the Hanging of the Greens on Sunday after the worship service and chili cook-off.

Christ the King is this Sunday, and communion will be served.

St. Andrew's Annual Chili Cook-Off

and Hanging of the Greens

This Sunday, after the church service, St. Andrew will celebrate the start of the Advent season with an annual chill cook-off and hanging of the greens. Community United Methodist Church is invited to take part in the festivities also. Please bring your favorite chili and/or cheese, sour cream, Fritos, cornbread, salad, side, or dessert.  Voting will take place for the best chili, and then we will decorate for Christmas. Some may wish to stay and help decorate the Fellowship Hall, while others will be needed to hang the Christmas lights in the outdoor chapel. We will enjoy Christmas music while we decorate!
