Title: Carrying the cross of Christ Notes: Although the figure carrying the cross represents Simon of Cyrene, the power of the image reminds us of Christ’s admonition to take up the cross and follow him. Photo by Lawrence OP. Artist: Loire, Gabriel, 1904-1996

Stop Hunger Now

September 7, 2014
Last year we packed over 40,000 meals.   Let’s do it again!


This 29 cents  will pay for one meal.
Hard to believe that you can feed a family of four for just the price of a cup of coffee.


But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?     1 John 3:17 (ESV)

Stop by the Welcome Center boards to pick up an “opportunity of service” to help others.

Let’s rededicate the vows we all took when joining CSUMC:
to support the church with our time and service!

We’ll reward YOU with a yummy, homemade choc chip cookie to eat!  Our need will become full, when we all “chip-in” and do a part of the whole!
Not sure how you should “chip-in”.   Take the Spiritual Gifts Assessment. ( Five minutes)  Then talk with Jill-Marie.
