“I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.”  Matthew 25:35-36.  

Once again, we will be partnering with Rise Against Hunger to package 20,000 meals for those in need.  All are welcome to join in this effort to be the hands of Jesus.  The date is Saturday, November 17; from 9:00 - 12:00 - two shifts of 1 1/2 hour each.  Sign up here:    http://events.stophungernow.org/Clarendon

One week later, November 24, we will be selling Christmas Trees to benefit those in need.  All proceeds go to THRIVE, Wings of Caring and Rise Against Hunger.  We need lots of volunteers to help sell trees, "wrangel" trees and help neighbors pick the perfect Christmas Tree.  The sign-up for that is:   https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c054eaba729a75-cumc1 

 

CUMC is dedicated to serving in the name of Christ, both in our local neighborhood and worldwide.  We have groups all over the church from the United Methodist Women to the children and youth, all finding ways to become the hands and feet of Jesus.  Our Outreach Ministry meets monthly and develops stratgies for meeting the needs of those in our church and the surrounding community.  We are always looking for opportunities to spread God's love and Christ's gospel of peace.  Join us in one or more of our ministries.  Ideas and suggstions for individual, family and group involvement are welcome and encouraged.   For more information, contact the church office at (703) 527-8574,
