We need trunks! If you would like to participate in Trunk-or-Treat by decorating your car trunk and handing out individually wrapped candy, please sign up here Trunk-or-Treat Volunteer Form or contact Savanna directly. Dressing up is encouraged... Let's make this fun for our CUMC and Shelby community kids! We will have prizes for the best trunks.
Under the advisement of United Methodist Church guidelines, local health care leaders, and the CUMC COVID-19 Task Force, we are implementing the following plan for re-entry back into church life after having COVID-19 or being exposed to COVID-19 within a family household.
If you have tested positive for COVID-19: Before participating in any activities at Central UMC, you must quarantine for 10 days beginning the first day you had symptoms and/or a positive COVID test.
If you have been exposed to COVID-19 within your family household or high risk exposure outside of household: You must quarantine until the last person in your household that tested positive for COVID has completed their 10 day quarantine (beginning the first day they had symptoms and/or a positive COVID test). Following that 10 day quarantine period, wait an additional 5 days or test negative for COVID-19.
*This standard will be the same for both vaccinated and non-vaccinated church members and will apply to all church activities- worship attendance, music rehearsals, Sunday School, Open Table, Children’s Ministry gatherings, Youth Ministry gatherings, etc.)*

Newborn Visitor Committee
The purpose of the Newborn Visitor Committee is to make a visit in the home of babies born to church members. We present a small gift to the child on behalf of the church. In addition, we typically take a gift of food. We offer support to the family and let them know the church is thinking of them during this time.
Every Sunday morning The Lambs (infants and young toddlers), The Guppies (toddlers and twos), and The Stars (threes and fours) make up the nurturing environment of our children’s nurseries. At each level, children experience God’s love through play, stories and manipulatives.
Kids Place lovingly serves the community’s preschool children and encourages them to make the most of their mental, spiritual, social, emotional, and physical development within a Christian environment.
