Thursday Thoughts

1. Sunday Morning Worship - This week we will continue our preaching series on "Women of the Bible" as Pastor Daryl guides us through the New Testament story of Elizabeth and her "Solid Foundation, as found in Luke 1:57-66. We will also be celebrating communion at all three services.

Invite a friend, or a even a neighbor, and we hope to see you all there at either 8am, 9:30am, or 11am!

Parking Reminder - We're encouraging our members to "park politely." That means for those who are physically able, please park at the Fruitland Park Elementary School lot (accessed from Fountain Street) or at the remote lot on the corner of Catawba/Rose Ave (we have golf cart shuttle from this lot). That makes room in the main lot for those who need access to the handicapped spaces and also for our first time visitors!!! Thanks for your help in this!!!

2. Grow Night Dinners and Classes - Our Wednesday Dinners and GROW Night programs are drawing to a close. Next week (May 10) is our closing program for the spring semester which will be held in the sanctuary at 6:15pm.

We've had a great semester of classes, growing in knowledge and love of God and in relationship with friends at CUMC. Keep your eyes open for news about our "Summer Gardens" small groups for over the summer months and how to sign up!!!

3. New Member Class - We will be hosting a New Member class after worship THIS Sunday May 7th in the Fellowship Hall. If you've been attending Community for a while and are ready to take the step of commitment to join the church, this class is for you.

Signup by contacting the church office today: (352) 787-1829 or

4. We Need You! - We are in need of volunteers to help with a few areas of the church.

One is with the tech aspects of worship at our 8am and 11am worship services. We will provide all the training, but we need people to help with the PowerPoint and sound board operations during the services. These positions are very important to the flow and experience of worship and truly add to our time together.

The second is with ushers at our 11am service. And the third is helping to coordinate greeters for our 8am service.

If you are interested in helping with any of these opportunities, please contact the church office by clicking here or calling us at (352) 787-1829. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

5. Vacation Bible School - It's coming up sooner than you might think!!! Vacation Bible School is set for June 19-23 in the evenings. There are lots of ways that you can help with Vacation Bible School if you would like to volunteer! Painting week for our set decorations will be from May 29 through June 2. Contact Faye Umble if you would like to serve (
