9-20-17 CMUMC Updates

This month I’ve been having all my annual doctor visits and  every year ​that includes a complete physical from my doctor​, a thorough check-up from head to toe. I usually have the same initial thoughts about this invasive, needle-sticking, ​body squeezing,​ finger-poking experience​ … ​​first, ​”​I’m too busy for this​!​ I just don’t have time​!​” Second, ​”T​his is not going to be fun!​”​ Third, ​”​I don’t want to know what I might learn!​” But the end result is always the same: I’m glad I did it, and it always leads to continued or better health​!​​​  EMAIL US NOW if you want a copy of the results.

 

​O​ur church is similar to this experience… no one really wants to do a thorough and honest evaluation, but ​when we do, we get ​better church health and robust performance!​ And after all, how do we know if we’re doing what GOD wants us to be doing without having conversations about it?!

WE’RE VISIONING FOR GOD’S FUTURE … What’s Next for CMUMC? 

In order to make the most use of our time, I have an ANONYMOUS  survey that asks 10 questions about what we’re doing well … in what areas would you give us a grade of B or better?  In each area, please take time to comment on why you feel the way you do.  Seniors, youth and children will also be sent separate surveys so you can be SPECIFIC about special areas of interest.  PLEASE  TAKE THE SURVEY NOW PLEASE … Click Here​​ ​ … survey will be closed on MONDAY 9/25 at 5 PM​
