WEEKLY UPDATE: October 25, 2021
(L-R) Mike Himes and Robyn Bolling of Fluvanna Habitat accept a donation from Cunningham UMC presented by Rich Kalchbrenner, Kitti Mann, and Pastor Amy Grant.
Fluvanna Habitat Update

Thanks to your generosity, Cunningham UMC recently presented Fluvanna Habitat with a gift of more than $1,400! Cunningham UMC has been in a covenant partnership with Fluvanna Habitat for more than 20 years. As part of that special relationship, we annually take up a special collection, as well as support the ministry through our missions work. This year, we were pleased to welcome Robyn Bolling, Executive Director, to speak to us in worship about the work Habitat does to provide decent, affordable housing in the county.

Fluvanna Habitat will dedicate their 26th home on Sunday, November 14 at 3 pm at 246 Charney Way (just minutes from the church). You are all invited and encouraged to attend.

As part of the celebration at each home dedication, Cunningham UMC has generously given the new family a laundry basket full of household cleaning items. We will have a basket in the narthex to collect items starting this Sunday, October 31.

Please contact Rich Kalchbrenner with any questions.

CUMC will be part of Fluvanna County’s Trunk or Treat at Pleasant Grove on October 30 from 6:30-8:30 pm. If you would like to support this effort by donating candy, contact Pastor Amy.

Cunningham's financial condition remains in good shape. At the end of September, the close of the 3rd quarter of 2021:

  • We are 75% through the year.
  • Contributions to the CUMC General Operating Fund were 78% of our annual budget. We are blessed to have such a faithful Congregation!
  • In addition, our 2021 expenses were 71% of our annual budget. We are further blessed to have such prudent stewards as our leadership!
  • General Operating Fund balance at the end of September was $33,994.
