Monthly Opportunities

Dinner for 8  Dinner for eight is a fellowship opportunity for adults.  It's a great way to spend time with old friends and make new ones!  Here's how it works:  after you sign up (singles and couples are welcome) you will be put into a group of 8 for dinner each month.  The groups change every month, so you have the opportunity to meet many people through the course of a year. It's "potluck style" - the host(s) provide the main dish, and guests are assigned to bring dessert, veggies, etc.   For more info or to sign up, call Judy Lindskov @ 431-0400 or 394-3663.  

CLUMC –CONNECT (meets the first Sunday of every month) Join this class to learn how to connect at CLUMC or become a member. Join us the first Sunday of every month following the 10:45am service for a pizza lunch and a chance to connect with ministry leaders and more!
