CUMC runs a variety of events all year round and is always looking for volunteers! For current opportunities to donate or become involved, see below.

Family Promise Volunteer Sign-Up begins
Our next Family Promise Week is July 15th – July 22nd Look for the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board across from Jeff’s Office. It would be very helpful to complete your sign ups as early as possible so we can figure out where our needs will be during this time. With so many people traveling during the summer, early notification will assist us in anticipating our volunteer needs.

You are invited to CUMAC in Paterson to serve for about 2 hours on Saturday July 28, 2018.

When: On July 28th, we can all meet in the church parking lot at 8:45am departing CUMC at 9am , and we will be returning to CUMC around 1pm.

We can all travel together by carpool. We are going to need about 4 people to volunteer to drive. This event is open to all people ages 12 and up. We can take a total of 20 volunteers.
