We Learn Together



The CUMC Nursery will be available on Wednesday from 6:00 - 8:00 PM. The two and three year olds will be offered separate classes.  Each group will have the opportunity to participate in music and learn an important Bible truth.


Each Wednesday evening, the children, ages 2 through 5th grades, will be growing in their faith in a variety of ways.   They will participate in activities and games; music, where they will have the opportunity to make a "Joyful Noize;" and a Bible based video curriculum each week.   Please join us each Wednesday to energetically grow with other children in our faith and to learn what it means to be a follower of Jesus in our young lives.   Activities will begin this year at 6:00 PM and conclude at 7:30 PM.


Youth Group is for student’s 6th-12th grade. During this time students will engage in fellowship, activities and learning.  An interactive learning time, based on Scripture, will look at what students go through as they navigate adolescence.  We meet from 6-7:30 PM in "The Place", located in the sanctuary basement.

We Sing Praise


Cherub Choir

The Cherub Choir is made up of Preschoolers and sings regularly in morning worship and is always a treat for both congregation and parents (and grandparents!)  Their repertoire includes all the standard Sunday School songs that we all learned as children.

Children's Choir - Joyful Noize!

The Children’s Choir has a long tradition of learning and presenting children’s music for both worship and special events.  The Children’s Choir meets weekly during Wednesday GAFFA and prepares music for both morning worship and for children’s musicals.  This choir also travels annually to share their songs of praise and worship to local churches in the area.

Youth Choir

Youth Choir will meet in the choir room at ___ pm on Wednesday. All middle and high school youth are welcome!

Adult Choir

The adult choir meets in the choir room from 6:15 p.m. till 7:30 p.m. The choir is open to everyone college age and above, who loves to sing. No auditions and no experience reading music necessary. Come be a part of the Body of Christ through music in worship.
