We are having a Birthday
Party for Jesus, and You are Invited!
Wednesday, Dec 1st, 5pm, in the Fellowship Hall; there will be decorations, a taco bar, birthday cake, and entertainment!
Let’s celebrate the start of December remembering what the Christmas season is really about, the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord! We decided the best way to do this was with an awesome Happy Birthday Jesus birthday party. Central’s last Wednesday Nite Café for the year is December 1st, and we are going to have a big celebration!
And what’s the one thing you always bring to a birthday party? A present!! We are partnering with the Volunteer Center of Morgan County and filling shoeboxes for local children for Christmas. Pick up your wrapped shoebox from the fountain area, and fill it up according to the instructions inside. Bring this present with you to the birthday party! Quay Lively will then make sure these gifts get to local children in need. I know Jesus would be thrilled that his birthday gifts are for others. “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40
So, we are asking for your presence and your presents on Wednesday evening, December 1st. All are welcome, all are invited, we hope to see you there!
Contact Ashley Sickles, 256-221-8423, with questions about the party or Quay Lively, 229-942-7611, with questions about the shoeboxes.

CUMC Picnic & Fishing
If our special children’s service was not enough of a blessing on Sept 26th – we were also blessed with a Glorious fall day to have our picnic and fishing day! And what a fun day it was! The farm was beautiful and everyone loved being outside and being with church family in a way we haven’t been able to in a long time! Many people enjoyed walking all around the pond and to the chapel and just enjoying the day.
And the fishing competition was so much fun to watch! Fish were weighed and measured and counted, sticks were caught, some even caught each other! But no one was hurt and fun was had by all! If you missed out on this day maybe you can join us the next time we have our traditional CUMC picnic!
