10-6-17 CMUMC UPDATES … Fall Festival tomorrow!

FALL FESTIVAL SATURDAY, 10/7, 3-5 PM
Thank to Brandy and her team for organizing our BEST Fall Festival ever … set up time is 1-3, then we’ll meet and great our neighbors and friends and HAVE SOME FUN!
 
PIE WITH THE PASTOR
Your Church Council interviewed and accepted your new Pastor on Wednesday night and I’m so excited to announce who it is on Sunday! We are working together for a smooth transition and in order to help her hit the ground running and help her meet as many people as possible, as quickly as possible, we are setting up PIE WITH THE PASTOR events. 
 
These will be small, informal, 1 1/2 hour “getting to know you” opportunities in people’s homes, for 15-20 people, and we’ll want to find 4-5 hosts on 4-5 different days to host these informal gatherings. They can be daytime or nighttime, midweek or Saturdays … she can be flexible.  Depending on the interest of people, we may need MORE dates/hosts than these and I want as many people to attend as possible!

 

 

​Would YOU like to host one of these VERY informal gatherings? ​ 
​Dates are first come-first serve so let me know!! As a host, just tell me how many people you can accommodate (you can borrow some folding chairs from the church if you need to!) ​and just make coffee or tea and ask a few of the people that sign up for that event to bring a pie (frozen is fine!!)  Paper plates please!!

​HERE ARE THE AVAILABLE DATES:  (We can add more if we need to!)

November 6, 13,14,15,16,17, 18
