We Worship at 9:30 & 11:00AM in our new church buildings on Archer Road in SW Gainesville, FL.  For the month of July we will be having just one service at 9:30 AM. The buildings are a half mile west of 91st Street and just west of the YMCA property. Use the YMCA entrance to enter the property.
This Week's Thoughts
I would like to thank everyone who helped with the Easter Festival.  Many children came and had a wonderful time.  I was able to speak to many parents and children about their faith.  So many are struggling with what to believe.  Sometimes, the stories of Jesus seem too good to be true for some people.  It doesn’t seem like the peace Christ offers is real or truly available.

We see this in action the day of the resurrection.  Jesus has appeared to the disciples, but one is not with them.  Thomas, for reasons unknown, is not present with the other disciples when Christ appears to them.  When they tell him about seeing Jesus, he struggles to believe.  In fact, he demands a special audience with Jesus.  Jesus does give Thomas that audience, and Thomas believes.

Missions
All who saved a life last Sunday by donating blood are appreciated!  If you weren't able to donate this time for some reason, please mark your calendar to do so in eight weeks.  Thank you!

Alachua Habitat for Humanity – Apostle Build Home Dedication on Sunday, April 27, 2014 at 1:30 p.m.  Address is 1327 SE 38th Place in Gainesville.  For all of those that participated in this project this is the culmination of all their work.  Good job!

We need a person to take the leadership role for the Back Pack Program with PK Yonge.  If you are interested please call Billie at 352-792-4193.  We could also use some assistants with the projects in case the coordinator is out of town.  There is a very small time commitment and it would be a great help.

(for any information on Mission Team projects, please contact Billie Sturgeon at sturgeonbl@cox.net)
Youth Group (Jesus Geeks)

Other Activities
CUMC Prayer Time (NEW DAY & TIME):  Jack Fox will be at the church to lead a group to pray, every Thursday at noon.  You are invited to join him as part of this prayer service to join others in prayer for the church and concerns that are on your heart.  Jesus reminded us that some things can only be solved through prayer and He has told us that wherever two or three were gathered, He would be there.  If you can come, please join in on this wonderful and powerful opportunity for CUMC family & friends.

Dare to Share Sunday School:
We will be digging into the Book of Psalms.  (Don't let the Dare to Share name scare you off!  We are not a support group!).  We meet in the classroom directly opposite the kitchen door from 9:40 till 10:30 a.m.    Come join us!

Linking to Faith Sunday School:
We meet Sundays at 10:45 a.m. in Classroom 2.  We are reading & discussing the book “Chasing Francis:  A Pilgrim’s Tale” by Ian Morgan Cron.  It is a story of a mega church pastor who loses his faith in the middle of a sermon and finds his way forward in faith by looking back at the life and teachings of St. Francis of Assisi.

Line Dancing Classes:
Come be part of our Line Dancing class, held Wednesdays at 6pm in the Educational building.   It will be a lot of fun, so just come on out and get to know one another while enjoying some line dancing and having a great time!

Celebration Band Of Brothers GroupFormerly known as the Men's Bible Study, the Celebration Band of Brothers group will be gathering on Tuesdays at 7pm in the classroom across from the kitchen.  The topic will be If God is Your Co-Pilot, Swap Seats. Please contact Roy English at 352-278-8005 or rmegator@att.net or just stop by and enjoy some great fellowship. This is an excellent way to meet other members and discuss current topics with a biblical foundation. It's entertaining, light, casual and ideal for all ages. Don't miss out.

Women's Bible Study meets on Mondays at 10:00 AM in the Sanctuary.

Tuesday Lunch Group If you are thinking about putting some small group fellowship into your life in 2014, we'd love to have you.  We meet at the Subway at Hunter's Crossing (5200 NW 43rd Street - just a short way north of 39th Avenue) on Tuesdays at noon.

The Heavenly Hens are always working on fun projects at 10:00 a.m. every Wednesday in the Education Building.  The hens are amazing ladies who accomplish a lot and have a great time while doing it!  We normally finish up between noon and 1:00 p.m.  There's something for everyone to do so don't miss out on wonderful fellowship if you don't think you're crafty.
