Cumberland Presbyterian Basics
Would you like to know more about the beliefs, history, and government of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church? People often ask:
What is different about Cumberland Presbyterians from other denominations? What does this church do to help others?
Come — ask questions, hear presentations, and learn about Cumberland Presbyterians. We will begin on the 24th of September from 9:50—10:40 a.m. We will gather in the gym.
40 Days in the Word — A small group is currently meeting in the gym on Sunday mornings between worship services. This group is studying the Bible by immersing itself in Scripture for forty days. The group is led by David Montoya. If you are interested in participating, please contact David.

This group of dedicated musicians meets each Wednesday to prepare the anthems for the Traditional Worship Service and Special Music throughout the year. Ray Herman is our director and Elsie Pugh and Robert Young are our accompianists. This group not only sings together, but they pray for and support one another. Those grades 8 through adults are invited to serve God in this way.
Tuesday Discussion Group—This group meets from 10 am to noon in the Conference room. This free-wheeling group discusses all manner of topics (including the Bible and religion) and believes our world is better when we understand one another. This is not a political group and the only rule is that we listen to one another and treat each person as a creature of worth. You do not have to ask for an excuse when you cannot or choose not to attend. There is no program or preparation required. This group is a great means of emotional support to your pastors. All are invited.
