September 29th our church participated for the second time as a minor exchange for Ragnar Relay, a race from Pere Marquette to Traverse City. We are blessed to have so many willing volunteers in our church. Women baked cookies for the runners. Men and women helped with the race, directing traffic, recording runners, cheering the participants on. For our efforts, Ragnar donates $500 to our congregation, but the Ragnar Relay is much more than that. It gives us an opportunity to showcase our faith by serving the runners, praying for their safety, and actually looking out for their safety on the course. Without our awesome volunteers this would not be possible. A huge thank you to all!
A memorial service will be held for Carol Weller to celebrate her life and all she has done for CUMC. We will be gathering at 4 PM on Wednesday, October 11th. Please help spread the word.
