Oktoberfest Oompah-pah-pah! A celebration of harvest time, Oktoberfest takes place each year in late September and early October. The most famous and popular place is Munich, Germany, where it all started. It is projected that over 6 million people will attend the 16-day celebration there this year. However, if you can't travel to Germany, come to the Senior Lunch at noon on September 27 for great fellowship and some Oktoberfest atmosphere! Chef John Adams and his team of volunteers will cook up a tasty meal starting with Bavarian-style meatballs and ending with a yummy "Black Forest" dessert. Please add your name to the signup sheet on the board in Fellowship Hall by September 24. Only two lunches (September and October) remain in 2017, but extra hands are always appreciated. If you can help with the Senior Lunch program, contact Ann Santos or John. We thank you!
Joys of the past year and hopes for the coming year will be celebrated on Saturday, September 16, when

Come and experience a Polynesian adventure. On Saturday, September 23 at 7:00 p.m., we will be showing the recent Bluray release of “Moana.” From the creators of “Frozen” and “Zootopia,” Moana is a wonderful blend of fun, adventure, music and that touch of Disney magic. “ In Ancient Polynesia,
when a terrible curse incurred by the Demigod Maui reaches Moana’s island, she answers the Ocean’s call to seek out the Demigod to set things right.” Film, food, fun and friends all for free! Don’t miss it!

Please join us!
"Heavenly Holiday Faire" craft workshops are happening every Monday this fall. Come to the Education Room between 9:30am and Noon and help assemble some great projects! You also can donate supplies. Needed are spice bottles, clear wine bottles, tennis balls, and buttons. Curious about what these will be used for? Join us and find out! Contact Barbara Gustafson, Nancy Raymond, Sylvia Terzich, or Deborah Ham Hemphill.
It's such a blessing that our Sunday School program is growing! We are currently searching for Sunday School volunteers who could teach Sunday School. We supply the curriculum, you supply the energy & the love of kids! Our goal is to get several volunteers who could rotate Sundays. If you would like to help, please contact Pastor Tony or Len in the front office. Thank you!
It is time for good food and great music! The Chancel Choir is holding a Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser
on Friday, September 29th from 5 – 7 p.m. The “High Desert Steel Drum Band” will be performing live during the Dinner. This amazing group of local young performers, conducted by our own Tammy Owens, is known near and far as one of the premier Steel Drum Bands. Tickets will be on sale at the church or you may purchase them at the door. Come and enjoy a great meal and fantastic music while supporting our Choir.
Many people enjoy coffee and goodies after second service on Sundays. The people who stay for
the fellowship has increased, so this is obviously a successful event. However, due to vacations and other issues, we currently are severely shorthanded! If you can spare some time on Sundays, we would love to have your help. It is easy duty: making beverages (training provided!) and setting out cookies, etc. We usually have cleaned up the kitchen by noon or shortly thereafter and are heading home. With enough volunteers, we need serve only once a month. If you can assist, please contact John Adams ASAP, at email@example.com. Hope you will join me in helping out! Thank you!
In addition to our inspirational and uplifting worship services, the CVUMC also has a great variety of events for the whole family! Join us here for family movie nights, luncheons, potlucks, Bible study groups, seasonal celebrations & lots of fun volunteer opportunities! Our website and monthly newsletter are great ways to stay current on upcoming events. Please scroll down the entire page to catch all the action this fall. We'll see you here!
