Annual Church Conference  -  October 18, 2017 

4:30pm The District Superintendent meets with Council Members.

5:00pm The District Superintendent meets with the entire church congregation for the church business meeting and devotional.  Please plan to attend as details are announced and voted upon for 2018.  Attend and be in the know!

Church Council members will be meeting during August and September to prepare reports for this annual meeting; their reports are to be completed for submission to the D.S. by the first week of October.

The Backpack Project is totally funded by donations and proceeds from parking fees during the August Glad Peach Festival, held in 2017 on August 4, 5, and 6. Proceeds were a bit light for all Festival events as the cold rain and bad weather hit Friday.  But Saturday was a beautiful sunny southwest Michigan day for enjoying the Festival with family and friends!  

Thanks to all volunteers and to all those who parked their cars in the CUMC lot, donating time and money to feed elementary children who use backpacks of food every weekend during the school year.  Thanks!  Thanks!  Thanks!   Good food grows strong minds and bodies for the future!  Hope you enjoyed your visit!  (More details available on the Backpack Project page.)

What is Pub Theology?  Where?  When?     Pub Theology 7:00pm Mondays  Arc. Brewery, Watervliet
People have been gathering for centuries in pubs, taverns, open spaces, to engage in conversation around topics of mutual interest, whether life, philosophy, or religion.  This gathering sponsored by several area churches offers a safe place to sit and listen or discuss. Mondays at 7:00pm, Arc Brewery in Watervliet, all are invited: believers, doubters, agnostics, hindus, atheists, buddists, non-believers.  The more the merrier!  Be there - see and hear for yourself.
