Decoding Sunday Mornings

-Pastor Miriam Smith


…what we see
…what we do

…what we say

After dinner on Wednesday nights, starting August 18, join Pastor Miriam in the Sanctuary to learn 

about the symbols of Sunday mornings here at Central. We will talk about the symbols that we can see, the meaning in our movements, and the familiar words we say in worship. If you’ve always wondered about: the colors of the cloth draped over the altar, why we light candles in worship, or realized you aren’t certain what “from whence he shall come” actually means…this is for you. Traditional and contemporary, all forms of worship carry layers of meaning. Join us and dig deeper into your Sunday morning experience.



CUMC Picnic & Fishing

-Debbie Looney, Children’s Director

It’s BACK!!! I know it’s been a while but we are having the picnic and fishing rodeo again!
This will be our first big gathering of our church family since the pandemic – so I hope everyone will come and enjoy an afternoon of fellowship, food and fun!


Pray for a glorious day Sept 26th! ( rain date is the next Sunday – Oct 3rd)

Bring your chairs, blankets and picnic dinner for you and your family and enjoy a picnic on the grounds at Rolling Oaks Estate, 3525 Crusher Rd SE. The church will provide tea, water and paper products.  And of course everyone needs to bring their poles and bait and let’s see who will take home an award from the fishing rodeo!

YEP – that’s right awards will be given! Will you catch the biggest???  The smallest???  And more…   We may even have some horse shoe throwing and croquet!

So make plans NOW to join your church family for what promises to be a great afternoon!




-Patti Stutts

The Market@Central will return, November 17, 2021, on Wednesday this year!

If you have been a Market volunteer before by preparing casseroles or by baking beautiful confections, we will be looking for you! If you have not been involved before, now is the time to join this joyous pre-holiday effort…..we need you!
Please mark your calendars for a culinary blitz starting in mid-October. Robin Limbaugh, Tara Stone, and Stacy Layton will be chairing this freezer-filling event. Again this year, all casserole orders will be Pre-Sold!


Likewise, the annual Poinsettia Sale thru Dixie Green will again be part of our fundraising for local charities. These traditional holiday flowers are simply exquisite! Please mark your calendars for the sale, which also begins in October. All Market Deadlines will be announced in September. Please support the Market while adding holiday cheer to your home. Corporate sales are most helpful!


Once again The Market@Central will be doing our best fundraising for: the Neighborhood Christian Center (NCC), the Volunteer Center, the Committee on Church Cooperation (CCC) Tennessee Valley Outreach (TVO), PACT, and UM Disaster Relief.


We look forward to welcoming YOU as part of this Extraordinary Missions Eve
