Lots of Cooking
The LOVE Circle usually meets each month on the 3rd
Monday at 10:00 a.m. in Room # 4 up stairs. After
the Program several women eat lunch together at a
local cafe. LOVE is the original women's group of
CLUMC which was established close to the time the
church was founded in 1980. Many of LOVE Programs
are based on the United Methodist Women's Studies
which look at current events focusing on, mission,
geographical and spiritual topics. The UMW Reading
Program is encouraged throughout the year as well.
We Hope to see you at HOPE... and...We'd Love to see
you at LOVE! You might be the answer to someone's
prayer or someone might be an answer to your prayer.
There's a chair waiting for you...and... there is a
friend waiting to meet you! Come!
CLUMC 2016 Woman of the Year
This past August at our Annual "Dine Out" Lily Montross was honored with a special recognition pin for her years of dedicated service at CLUMC. At 90 years young, she attends not just one Sunday service but both! As a faithful greeter, her smile and English accent is enjoyed at many church events. Lily is often a liturgist in the pulpit, attends meetings as our CLUMC Sr. Representative, folds weekly bulletins, calls visitors and those in the hospital, the sick, home bound and... gives inspiring programs. Thank you Lily for all you do for so many!

Recent UMW Retreats
Each spring a two day Women's
Retreat sponsored by Hope Circle for ALL women of the church and the
community is held at a near by retreat center. Our time
together offers spiritual renewal lead by a guest women pastor, as
well as recreation and the joy of making new friends.
Painted Church Excursion
Our church bus allows us to do many
field trips during the year.
One was our day outing to the Flatonia/La Grange area to see several
100-150 year old hand painted churches.
The Altar Guild
Offers an opportunity within our church (through the Worship
Committee) to serve our Lord by preparing the elements and readying
the altar for communion the first Sunday of each month as well as
changing the chancel paraments to coincide with the liturgical
seasons. To participate or obtain more information please call the
church office – we are eager to have you with us.
