Lenton Season

  • Feb. 18 – Ash Wednesday Worship Service – 7pm. This worship service will include the Impositionof Ashes and the Service of Holy Communion. We as a church will begin our season of Lent together as we worship together and prepare for the journey of Lent.

  • Feb. 11 – New Lenten Bible Study, “The God We Can Know, by Rob Fuquay” – 6:15pm to 7:30pm. A 6 –week Bible Study exploring the “I Am” sayings of Jesus. This is a video-based discussion group and all are welcome. Bring a Bible and a friend. We will meet upstairs in Room 201.

  • April 2 – Maundy Thursday Worship Service – 7pm. This worship service recounts the last hours of Christ’s life, with the extinguishing of candles and readings. This is a moving service and if you have never attended a Maundy Thursday service, you will want to experience this.

  • March 29 – Palm Sunday – One Combined Worship service at 10 a.m. The choir will present their Easter Cantata and we will gather together to hear the music and scriptures recounting the story of Christ’s journey to the cross on our behalf. Bring family and friends to this special worship experience!

  • April 5 – Easter Sunday – We will have worship services at our normal times, 9 a.m. and 11:15a.m., with Holy Communion at both services. We will rejoice together and experience together the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

    Youth in 8th grade and older are invited to delve deeper into their Christian faith in anticipation of ‘confirming’ their faith in due course. Confirmation allows a young person to explore and then publicly affirm their faith in Jesus Christ. It is a time of great celebration.  For more information >>click here.

 Upcoming Activities & Announcement

  • Have You Noticed?  Our CCUMC grounds have been looking groomed! A beautiful lawn does not happen by itself! Join a Lawn Care Team to help keep them beautiful! We are creating more Teams in order to have a once a month rotation. Sign up today! Contact Jim Cole @ 512-985-5980 “The earth is the lord’s and everything in it.” Psalm 24:1.

  • Circle of Support: Recently many of our CCUMC family have experienced setbacks in health, injuries, loss of family members, or changes in circumstances that result in an increased need for support from other church family members. The gals in the Brown Bag Bible Study today have decided to begin a "Circle of Support" ministry. We're going to start with prayer shawls and lap robes but we can see the need to include a casserole ministry, and other support services needed. If you would like to participate in some way, please send me an e-mail or give me a call at 512-718-2436. The more participants we have, the larger the numbers of those to whom we can lend our support. Roberta Laundy

  • Prayer Room Open for Business - It's comforting to know that CCUMC is bathing every ministry in prayer and is specifically asking God to bless those in need of specific prayers. The prayer room is open, for whosoever will, one time or on-going, on Sundays from 8:30-9:00am and Wednesdays from 5:15-5:45pm. Praying for others is one of the nicest things we can do. A big thank you to Melba Conley, who has been diligently leading this effort.
