Share your signs of new life

-Pastor Dorothy Ann Webster
  Our chapel was FULL of youth, adults and children at 7:30 in the morning on Ash Wednesday, as worshipers gathered to receive the call to repent, and to accept the sign of the cross in ashes on theirplant growing foreheads. With the full day ahead, those in attendance were challenged to use the ashes as conversation starters, to share with others the good news of Jesus’ forgiveness when we repent. 

  “New life grows when we turn to God!” was the theme for our Ash Wednesday evening service. Worshipers were given the opportunity to plant morning glory seeds in small pots, and then to take them home and care for them in the weeks ahead. The morning glories are a symbol of the new life in Christ that grows when we repent, or turn away from sin, and turn toward God, just as the ashes are a sign of our repentance.

  How are your morning glories growing? More importantly, where are you experiencing new spiritual life growing in you? Post your answers on CUMC’s Facebook page, or send them to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Work has begun

-Pastor Dorothy Ann Webster

  It has begun! With an affirmative vote from the Trustees, work has begun on updating the old Central work1Weekday School hall. It will become our new Nursery and Young Children’s Hall. After hearing a request from Nursery Coordinator Jama Howell to go ahead and work2move into the area, the Trustees decided to proceed with updates of new paint, flooring and LED lighting for the classrooms and hallway. This will allow the Nursery and younger children’s classes to move into the area more quickly than previously planned. Our goal is to move in by Palm Sunday!
