THE CARPENTER’S CLUB
APPALACHIA SERVICE PROJECT
This past Sunday we were treated to a very special presentation from Rachael and her dad, Dennis Ewing, about the Appalachia Service Project (ASP). Their information about the people in this region of our country and the difficulties and hardships they face was eye-opening, inspiring, and certainly caused an outpouring of charity and support from our congregation.
Over $200 was collected in the Good Will Donation basket. These funds were handed to Rachael directly to support the specific country she will be working in come May.
CUMC will be supporting Rachael and ASP in our upcoming Ham and Oyster Dinner in May. We will have Dennis join us that night with pictures and testimonies from the folks who were helped by ASP (Rachael will already in the county she will be working in) Please continue to support CUMC’s mission project by purchasing water, soda and ice tea and the collection of quarters in the Sanctuary.
A very proud grandfather of Rachael’s, Rich Fisher, said at the luncheon, “I am so proud of Rachael and everything she does” . Indeed, Rich, we feel the same and we could not be happier to support her and the work she is doing in this very important ministry.
We thank Rachael, her dad, Dennis and Ruth Fisher for providing us a mission project to help the many people of this region.
Hope to see everyone at the Ham and Oyster dinner on May 12th
Many blessings. Betsy Booker
Are You Hungry
Little Learners is recommending that you visit the Bucktown Grill at 2088 Pottstown Pike. We have “Grille Bucks for you to take along and hand in when you pay for your order. Bucktown Grille will give 10% of your purchase to Little Learners as a donation. Pick up your Grille Bucks from the basket in the rear of the Sanctuary and keep them in your wallet. Please tell your family and friends also about this easy and delicious way to help our preschool. Thanks!
Young Adult Program
The Leadership Resources Team is considering offering a Young Adult program. Are you interested in meeting once a month or every other month if a program were available? It could be midnight bowling, grabbing a bite to eat at a local restaurant, Bible study, marriage enrichment, or just hanging out at home or at church playing games/cards or watching a movie.
Please feel free to share your thoughts and ideas with me regarding a Young Adult program. If you would like to take the lead in developing this group that would be great! My email is email@example.com. Our next meeting is scheduled for April and the information I gather will be shared with the members of the Leadership Resources Team. Thanks!

Spiritual Growth Opportunities
Current Sermon Series
They are simple phrases. They sound Christian – like something you might even find in the Bible:
- Everything happens for a reason
- God helps those who help themselves
- God won’t give you more than you can handle
- Love the sinner, hate the sin
- God said it, I believe it, that settles it
We’ve all heard these words. Maybe we’ve said them. They capture some element of truth – yet they also miss the point in very important ways. This five week sermon series breaks down these half-truths.
