10-5-17 CMUMC Updates

Please be in prayer as your Church Council SPRC (Staff Parish Relations) prepares to interview a candidate as your next Pastor later this week. That meeting is a private meeting and we hope to announce something by the end of the week!  Your leaders are working hard to get ready for year end reporting and budgeting for 2018 … we are BLESSED to have amazing people in our church!
 
Of course, be in prayer for the people in Winnsboro and for me as we move into this “Changeover Zone”.
