We Need Your Help!

As a church, we want to    do everything we can to support your spiritual growth. We want to know what’s helping you grow spiritually, and what’s getting in the way.

So we’re asking you to set aside 15-20 minutes during this period to take our Spiritual Life Survey. All account information and survey information is confidential.  
The survey findings will help shape our decisions about how to create the best possible ministry strategies to serve you.

We know you are very busy. But this is very important.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is an exciting time to be part of the God-led ministry at CSUMC. As we step forward  into a fruitful future together, I would like to share an exciting, short-term opportunity that has long-term impact in our congregation and our community.

CSUMC has done the hard work to clarify and focus the ministries that God has called us to.  We have organized around our faith journey of “Experience God, Grow Together, Serve Others” so that we can become LOVE (the love of Christ), so we can share LOVE.   The next step into the future that we need to take is to discern the movement or direction of our ministry for the next 3-5 year span.

To facilitate that objective, we are going to engage in a new kind of “strategic planning process” to discern strategic goals (at least 3, no more than 5) for the next 3-5 years, that will move us forward toward God’s vision for our shared future ministry.  These goals will help the Ministry Teams shape their annual planning, as well as their movement toward our shared goals.  

Each Faith Journey Ministry Area will be having a dreaming meeting to discern strategic goals for the next 3 to 5 years.  There will be a meeting for the Experience God ministries April 12 (worship and music, welcome visitation); a meeting for the Grow Together ministries April 26 (equipping and connecting ministries); and a meeting for the Serve Other ministries May 10 (mission design, care and connect, etc.) Everyone is invited to attend the meeting of their choice and be part of this exciting process.  Stay tuned for the dates.  

If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Denise (pastordenise@cavespringumc.org).

Experience God – Grow Together – Serve Others.
Taught by pastors and staff, it’s an excellent way to know others and connect to a small group. The JOURNEY begins the first Sunday of each month at 9:50 AM .
EVERYONE will benefit from beginning their JOURNEY. Please make JOURNEY a priority in your Christian life. Contact Jill-Marie for more information.

 

experience-god

Experience God

God is eager to be known and experienced by all. We believe that God is searching for lost humanity in order to draw us into intimate relationship with Himself. In response to God’s initiative, we value the life-changing power of the experience of His presence. The primary place where that relationship is nurtured and developed is in the act of worship – both private and corporate. We experience God’s presence as a palpable reality when we worship. As we worship we can do as Jesus did: “See what the Father is doing,” and support His work with our lives.


 

Both worship areas are on the upper level. The main entrance is the stairs located next to Parking Lot B. The Sanctuary is at the top of the stairs. Wesley Hall is located to the right of the Sanctuary as you pass through the Gathering Grounds (Stop by for morning coffee!).


Those that find stairs an obstacle, can enter using the lower level side entrance next to Parking Lot B. Handicap Parking in available in this area. Just follow the hallway to its end. An elevator will be located on you left. Restrooms are located next to the elevator on both levels.

growtogether

Grow Together

One of the easiest ways to grow is to connect with people who have a desire to learn and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Growth Groups and Small Groups are a great way to do that! You’ll build great relationships, discover your full potential, and reach out to those around you. We are dedicated to growing and maturing as followers of Jesus. When Jesus began his ministry on earth, the first thing he did was gather a small group around him. In small groups we mature together and seek to apply Biblical principles practically to life.


 

serve-others

Serve Others

Serving our Community is a vital part of what we are all about here at CSUMC. Our community starts within the walls of the church and then travels onto the streets of the surrounding neighborhood, continuing into the city and the state and beyond. It’s little things like bringing a meal to a new mom, or raking the leaves of an elderly neighbor. It’s also big things like packing 40000+ Stop Hunger Now meals or a medical mission trip to Honduras. It could be the youths going to the Appalachians to make repairs on a house or providing over 3500 backpack meals a year to local school kids. However we choose to serve, it’s an expectation that has been handed to us and we faithfully and actively pursue new opportunities.
