Staff Christmas Gifts

From the Staff Parish Relations Committee:

One of the ways CAUMC is blessed throughout the year is through the hard work of our staff. Much of their work goes on behind the scenes, providing instrumental support in carrying out our mission. We’d like to invite you, as you are able, to contribute to a fund that will be distributed among the staff as a Christmas bonus. Your contribution can be made online through our website ( there is a new option, ‘Staff Christmas, by placing an envelope specifying your gift for staff Christmas in the offering, or by giving your gift personally to myself, Leo Lake, or George Milliken.

Merry Christmas and blessings to you, members, and participants at CAUMC!

Lorrie Gfeller-Strouts, SPRC Chairperson
