*Our loose coins collection for last weekend was $46.72. Thank you for your continued loose coin offerings and donations to our Habitat for Humanity Faith Build Homes.
Note: please do not put foreign coins in the plate since the bank will not accept them.

Please bring donations of nonperishable food items, paper goods and personal care products. As we are fed spiritually, we can help to nourish and care for those in need through our acts of generosity and love. Loaves & Fishes donation bins are located in the Welcome Center, near the elevator.

You are needed! Join the CUMC Team at the Northern Illinois Food Bank (solvehungertoday.org) on the second Thursday each month from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm. Don’t worry – there are jobs that don’t require lifting. No need to sign up; just show up! It’s a great chance to get to know other CUMC folks AND help hungry families. Questions? Contact JoAnn Roessler at roesslerlg@gmail.com.

Greeters are needed, especially for the 11:00 am service. This important ministry only adds about 15 min to your morning! For more information, please contact Al Brunsting at abrunsting@comcast.net or Joyce Brunsting jbrunsting@comcast.net.

Looking for a meaningful way to participate in contemporary worship? Consider becoming a lay reader for our 11:00 am OnCenter service. Scheduling is flexible and readers of all ages are welcome to inquire! For more information contact Kyle Markwell at cumc.kyle@gmail.com.

Join Hunger Committee and Heifer Project in this long-standing CUMC Christmas tradition and help provide tools and training to smallholder farmers throughout the world. You can help by buying livestock, including chicks and goats, to change the lives of families around the globe. Please stop by the Heifer table in the Welcome Center and join in this wonderful holiday tradition.

At the 4:00 pm service on Christmas Eve, we encourage you to bring packages of baby food. They will be collected and donated to support young families through Teen Parent Connection. Questions? Contact Beth Hagemeyer, Director of Children’s Ministry, at cumc.beth@gmail.com.
