This Sunday we will decorate the church for Christmas. You are encouraged to wear Christmas colors to worship.


Support Cunningham on Giving Tuesday: We've survived Black Friday and Small Business Saturday and are now experiencing Cyber Monday today. Tomorrow, we have the opportunity to participate in Giving Tuesday. At Cunningham we have many ongoing active ministries in which you can participate by going online to give at https://cunninghamumc.org/ or mailing, dropping off, or putting your contribution into the collection plate, designating the ministry you wish to support or just give to our General Fund where we will use your donation for our greatest needs.

You are invited to

Thanks to those members of our Cunningham family who have already submitted their 2024 General Operating Fund budget commitment cards which were dedicated during our Service last Sunday. If you have not yet had a chance to return your commitment card to the Church, there is still an opportunity to do so, as we will continue to dedicate those cards as we receive them. Commitment cards are available in the Narthex, or you may contact Walter Hussey, our Finance Chair ([email protected] or 703.967.1798) or the Church office.
