Disaster Response Certification Training

“WHEN THE EARTH ROCKS, UMCOR ROLLS”… You may not realize that when disasters hit in the U.S. and Territories, very often the first on the scene are the Methodists…in the form of United Methodist Committee on Relief. Local churches can become an arm of UMCOR thru certification by UMCOR trainers. 

NOW’S YOUR CHANCE – Mark your calendar for Friday, January 12 (6:00 to 9:00 p.m.) and Saturday, January 13 (TBA). Byron and Janice Mann serve as the Arkansas Conference Coordinators for disaster relief training. The Mann’s will be at Central to teach classes enabling CUMC to be a Disaster Relief Church with members that are certified. The training will be open conference-wide as we welcome United Methodists from all over our state to this event. 

Why do we want to be certified? First of all, we want to be ready and prepared when disaster strikes. Second of all, teams do not have access to disaster situations without certified members. WE WANNA BE READY! 

A winter/early spring trip is planned for the Houston area which was so badly damaged by Hurricane Harvey. On the form that has been sent for our CUMC team, the first question is: Is your team UMCOR certified? By February or March we WILL be! Won’t you join us and make a significant difference to the thousands of people affected by this year’s natural disasters. 

PRE-REGISTRATION IS MANDATORY! The fee for registration is $30 and covers lunch, training materials, background check and badge. 

Make checks payable to CUMC, and on the memo line write: DISASTER TRAINING. 

Please contact Les Oliver with any questions.

Anxious for Nothing Bible Study

Do you feel weighted down with worry? Does the uncertainty and chaos of life keep you up at night? Are irrational fears your constant companion? Could you use some calm? In this five-session video Bible study, bestselling author Max Lucado explores God’s treatment plan for anxiety found in Philippians 4:4–8. As you follow this prescription – celebrating God’s goodness, asking for his help, leaving your concerns with him, and meditation on good things – you will experience God’s peace. This is a peace that “transcends all understanding” and will help you reframe the way you look at your fears. Men and women are invited to join Bonnie Grimes Tuesdays at 3:30 beginning November 14th in Rm 105. Call the church offce to register, 636-1630. Books availble for $10 in the church office.

OCC-Logo-1200x1200.jpg

The journey of the shoe box has already begun!! This year CUMC is serving as the Central Drop-Off site.  In August, 9,000 flattened shoe boxes were delivered to the bus barn. These boxes are being distributed to 4 counties in NWA, where they will be assembled, filled and returned to our bus barn from November 13-20.  We are seeking volunteers during those dates to help count and pack the shoe boxes into cartons and volunteers with muscle to help load those 50-70 pound cartons into 3 semi-trailers. Our church’s shoe box journey will begin Sunday October 29 with shoe boxes being ready for you to pick up, fill, pray over and return.

Habitat for Humanity

IT’S TIME FOR ANOTHER HABITAT HOUSE BUILD!

1692-habitat-for-humanity-web.jpg

UPDATE:  A BIG thank you to those who volunteered to prepare lunch for our Habitat workers this next week.  Actually had to turn away 3 groups or individuals who wanted to help.

We still have a need for workers as follows:

Monday, May 22 – need 5 workers. 
Tuesday, May 23 – FILLED. 
Wednesday, May 24 – need 2 workers. 
Thursday, May 25 – need 2 workers. 
Friday, May 26 – NEED 7 WORKERS.

Wanted:  Workers for finish work on a new house build in Centerton.  The new home is for a single mother with 3 children.  Central needs 8-10 workers from Monday, May 22 thru Friday, May 26.  Work includes painting plus last minute details.

Please choose a day at your convenience and help us finish a wonderful new home for a NWA family in need. 

Perhaps you’d like to furnish a lunch for 20 workers during that same time schedule above.  Please contact Les Oliver if your Sunday School class or church group would like to furnish a meal.

Central’s fee for this house build is $1700, which is actually half the price most churches pay.  We are doing “Bucks for Blocks” at $10 per block.  You can buy 1 block for $10 or a hundred blocks for a $1000…or anything in between.  See the kiosk in the Atrium and donate generously for Central’s part of the Habitat House Build.  Your donation would be greatly appreciated.  Contact Les Oliver for more information.
