Join the CARDUNAL Crop Walk on Sunday, Oct. 19th as the communities of Dundee, Carpentersville & Algonquin walk together to help feed the Hungry, benefiting your local food pantry, PADS, and World-Wide Missions. Collect donations and then join others… the CARDUNAL Crop Walk will start at 1:00pm at First United Methodist Church, 318 W. Main Street in West Dundee. There are several ways to be involved: talk with one of our recruiters (Janet Kleckner, Marty Himebaugh or Bonnie Dodge) who’ll give you a donation envelope to collect donations from your sponsors; or click here to register your family & join the CUMC team. Then ask your neighbors, family, & friends to sponsor you and support the CARDUNAL Crop Walk. If you can’t participate in the walk, get in touch with one of our walkers and “sponsor” their walk (their names are listed on the bulletin board at church). Thank you for helping to feed the hungry and those in need. May the Lord bless the 2014 CARDUNAL CROP Walk! CARDUNAL Treasurer Dave Clark; CARDUNAL Crop Walk Coordinator Kim Aupperle

You’re invited to attend Christ United Methodist Church’s Annual Church Conference on October 16th, at 7:00 pm. We’ll celebrate the accomplishments of our work over this past year, and share our goals for 2015. Our annual meeting will also give us an opportunity to continue reflecting on the Annual Conference question “Who is my Neighbor”, with this year’s emphasis on “…So How Are the Children?”
The meeting will be conducted by our District Superintendent, Rev. Oscar Carrasco, who asks that you come to our annual meeting having asked a child or teenager one of the following questions:
…What is the best part of your day?
…What is the least favorite part of your day?
…What makes the kids in your community cry?
…If you could change something about this world, what would it be?
…If you could change something about the church, what would it be?
See you on October 16th, at 7:00pm!
