Next Sunday, November 4th we will be honoring All Saints Day. If you have someone you would like recognized by naming and the lighting of a candle, please give their name to Konnie or Pastor Gary by November 1st.
Thinking about helping out as Liturgist?
Edie Bogart and Mechelle Schneider are going to hold a brief class after worship on November 4th in the sanctuary on how to be a liturgist. They will explain the nuances, have a hand out, and answer questions. Anyone interested in signing up as liturgist is welcome. Thanks!
The Charge Conference for Claybanks UMC will be at CUMC on Wednesday, November 28th at 7:00 pm. (SPRC will be meeting at 6:15) The meeting will be held with the new District Superintendent, Rev. Dr. Margie Crawford to discuss the business of our church. There is much work to do and we need input on decisions that will be made during this important meeting. The more voices we can have in attendance the better the church will be represented as a whole. Please try to do everything possible to attend and be a part of the business aspect of our church and to welcome our new D.S.
