LYDIA CIRCLE

will be cleaning the kitchen on December 20 at 5:30 p.m.

FROM FINANCE

Please have all money turned in to the church office by NOON on December 27th if you want it counted for this year on your financial statement.

IF YOU HAVE NOT TURNED IN YOUR PLEDGE CARD

or have misplaced the one sent to you, pick up a new one from the sanctuary entrance and return it to the church office as soon as possible. We encourage you to do so before the end of the year so that we can determine our finances

for 2017.  -LaVonne Ogilvie

SPECIAL PRAYERS

As we begin the New Year 2017, we are going to have 40 days of Special Daily Prayers at 9:00 p.m. from January 4 through February 12. We all will pray at the same time wherever you are for God’s guidance and help in the New Year and for our church. We will have more detailed information for you next Sunday

THIS IS BALDWIN MONTH

On December 31 we will be serving lunch to those in need at the Baldwin Center in Pontiac. We will meet in the parking lot of the church by 9:15 a.m. We will carpool to the Baldwin Center where we set up to serve. We serve lunch from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. We then clean up the kitchen and head back to CUMC arriving at about 1:30 p.m. This is a day that will make you feel good about yourself. The sign-up sheet is in the hallway on the bulletin board.   -Ellen McCabe


PLEASE LET THE OFFICE KNOW 
When you are in the building, especially if you let yourself in. This is for the safety of everyone. 
Thank you.​


OUR ANNIVERSARY CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS 

are available during the week in the office. If you wish to purchase an ornament on Sundays, see LaVonne Ogilvie. They are $10.00 each.


PRAYER SHAWLS 
are available in Ben’s old office at the top of the stairs by the Connections Café. If you need one, simply pick one in a zip lock bag with a card. Please sign the book on the top of the cabinet with the date taken, who it is for, and your name.

IF YOU ARE TRAVELING
Please bring in any extra toiletries you bring back with you. We use these for the layettes.


COOKIES FOR BALDWIN
Baldwin Center is in need of a lot of cookies for the daily lunches they serve. Bring packaged or homemade cookies to church on Sundays and place them in the “cookie box” in the office hallway. We will see that they get delivered to Baldwin. Thank You!

CLAWSON COMMUNITY CENTER CAN USE SUNDAY NEWSPAPER COUPONS
If you have coupons you won't be using from Sunday papers, please put them in the white basket that is on the counter in the hallway.

 INK CARTRIDGES
We are still collecting used printer ink cartridges to take to Staples for recycling. CUMC gets a $2.00 credit for every ink cartridge we recycle. This has helped offset our office supply expenses tremendously! Please consider donating your empty ink cartridges. You can put them in the little wicker basket in the hallway or bring them to the church office. Thank you!


PLEASE BE SURE TO SIGN THE “RITUAL OF FRIENDSHIP” PAD LOCATED AT THE END OF EACH PEW.


PLEASE KEEP THE OFFICE INFORMED

of anyone you would like to have put on our Prayer List.  Also, let us know when we can remove any names.  You can get a copy of the Prayer List in the rack in the hallway outside of the Sanctuary. There is also a copy posted on the bulletin board in the Prayer Room.
