The CAUMC youth will be headed to Memphis, Tennessee on July 24-29, 2022 for their Mission Trip. Partnering with Street Reach Ministries, the youth and their sponsors will be ministering to neighborhood children by running Bible Club in the mornings. Afternoons will see the youth doing service projects throughout the community.
Honoring Seniors Tomorrow
Tomorrow morning (Sunday, May 22, 2022), we’ll have our regular in-person and livestreamed services at 8:15 and 10:30. We’ll be recognizing members of the Abilene High School class of 2022 at both services, but they will only be present in person at the 10:30 service. Those being honored are Braden Adams, Samuel Burton, Joy Clemence, Nick Holmes, and Maren Meneley.
Two Sundays ago (April 24, 2022), we presented Bibles to Addison Duey, Brenna Bryant, and Anna Holt. We’re so glad to have these girls as part of this church.
