The next Meeting of the whole Council is scheduled to be held July 28, 2018,from 1 to 5pm.  During worship July 22nd, Pastor Chris invited all to attend and observe during this open meeting of the Council.


From Jeff Phillips, Council Chair: "This will be our first meeting with Pastor Chris.  We will need to plan our community ministry based on an assessment of evident needs, while seeking God's will for us in the next year.  Please prepare Committee Reports and feel free to suggest agenda items.  We will start with a potluck lunch; Pastor Chris will contact you about food to bring.  Thank you and God bless you."


The council works through prayer and considerate discussion to advancing God's work through the CUMC.  If you have comments, congratulations, or concerns that you feel the council should hear, please talk with one or more of the council members listed.  Your input is welcome, appreciated, and valuable as we consider the present and future of CUMC.   

On November 19, 2017, the council met to introduce new members, to thank outgoing members for their service, and to review current status of ongoing concerns.  Jeff Philips is the new lay leader and council charge for beginning with the 2018 year. Pam Walker is grateful for the support she received and the experience of acting as council chair during its initiatory years.  Michael Gearhart will also be missed, but is to be congratulated on the career and life changes he is making.

     a compassionate people, seeking, serving, sharing, discovering the love of Jesus, together.
