Thursday Thoughts

1. Sunday Morning Worship - This week we will continue our preaching series centered around our Methodist heritage. Pastor Debbie will walk us through how "A Methodist Rejoices in God" as she reflects on Nehemiah 8:10.

Invite a friend to come with you this weekend. We'll be worshipping at 8am, 9:30am, and 11am.

*Just a reminder. There is no Thursday Seven02Worship during January and February as our Upwards League reaches out to the community in that space.

2. New Member Class - Our next New Member Class is coming up this month on Sunday, February 17th, beginning at 12:30pm, in the Fellowship Hall. We will look at what it means to be a United Methodist, what it means to be a member of Community, and how we live this life together. We will serve lunch and childcare will be provided. If you have been attending CUMC for a while and want to take the step of commitment in joining the church, we welcome and invite you to attend. Please contact the church office at 787-1829 or email the office by clicking here to RSVP. We hope to see you there!

3. GROW Night Has Returned - Wednesday Night dinners and our new GROW night classes have begun. We have new class choices and new subjects aimed at helping you grow deeper in your faith.

These classes are great ways to explore your faith, meet new people, and feel the power of the Holy Spirit in your life. We hope you will make plans to join us each week as we GROW together!

4. UPWARDS is in full swing! - Practices for basketball and cheerleading are on Tuesdays in the Family Life Center and games are on Thursdays throughout January and February.

We've got a great group of kids signed up to participate and wonderful adults to help out - please keep this program in your prayers for a safe season of good sportsmanship; and if you have a chance, come on out on a Thursday at 6pm for the juniors and 7pm for the seniors and cheer these kids on!

5. UMW Spring Tea - Saturday, March 9th will be our Annual UMW Spring Tea. Tickets always go fast and will go on sale February 17th after each worship service. They will be available again on February 24th, if they have not sold out.

The theme this year is Petals and Pearls. There will also be a fashion show sponsored by Fashion Labels in Leesburg. Talk with your friends, purchase your tickets, and plan for a great afternoon of good food and great conversation.

6. A New Adventure! - A new year can bring with it new adventures. If you are looking for a new adventure in your life here at Community, we have an opportunity for you. We are looking for volunteers in several areas of our Sunday morning time together. We are looking for Ushers, Communion Stewards, Golf Cart Drivers, and Tech Booth Operators. No previous experience is needed and we will provide all the training. We are extremely grateful for those that are volunteering in these capacities right now and would love to welcome more people to these ministries.

It takes many hands to make our Sunday mornings as special as they are, and we could use your help. If you are interested in volunteering in any of these areas, please contact the church office at 787-1829, or email us by clicking here and we will get you plugged in. We look forward to seeing you at worship and working with you as we worship our Gracious God together!

Have a wonderful rest of your week and we look forward to seeing you in worship this weekend!
