We are living in uneasy times. It is helpful to remember that regardless of what is going on in the world, God is the same, yesterday, today, and tomorrow! We are working diligently to find ways to stay faithful in our Christian walk while keeping our family and our neighbors safe.
Step one: We find a way to worship.
In addition to our live stream on Sunday, we will also have our "Drive-In Worship." Stay in your car...but be near your church family...all at the same time!
We can handle about 50 cars per service. So, if you come by and the lot is full, you have another chance in 30 minutes!
Services are at 9:30 am and 10:30 am on Sundays!
If anything changes (and it could) ..stay up to date on www.cumberlandchurch.com
See you Sunday!

All Church Activities...100% of them.. are cancelled ...(hopefully just Postponed) until further notice!
Our nation (and the whole world) is is certainly experiencing some uncertain times. Our local , state, and National government have taken steps to help ensure the safety of our county. We will faithfully heed their advice and suspend ALL activities here at the church until further notice...(Really? ALL ACTIVITIES??...yes
What about the session meetings? ..they are cancelled.
What about Prayer group...nope..still cancelled..
Sunday morning worship...FamJAm..Youth???
There are no exceptions.
Please don't come by the church..call or email if you have to (staff will be in and out..the doors will be locked). Please make sure that others who may not be as tech savvy as you are in the know as well.
Your church leadership and staff are working diligently to create some safe and creative/meaningful ways for our faith community to stay strong...ways to be together..while we are apart. so be looking for those opportunities on our website (www.cumberlandchurch.com) , in your emails, in your texts, and on our church Facebook page. I'll be in touch soon with some updated plans.
If you are in need of assistance running errands, the church staff and willing volunteers will be available to travel to the grocery store, pick up medications, or help gather anything that you need.
These are some difficult times for sure...and step one is to stay safe! We have a whole lot to figure out about how life is going to be these next few months,,,I assure we can remain steadfast in faith and practice as followers of Christ ....it is just going to look a little different for a while.

At Cumberland, we take your safety and health seriously. With the coronavirus taking center stage in the news media, we understand your concerns, and we want to make sure that those with health risks are protected the best we can.
The uncertainty of this outbreak is creating anxiety in our culture. Yet, we remain certain of God’s steadfast presence and careful attention to all that is happening. Please join us in praying for those who are affected by this illness, as well as their caregivers and those who are working around the clock to minimize the impact of this virus. In Psalm 46, we are reminded that it is God who is our refuge and strength, and our ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, let us be wise, but not fear, while we continue to be the hands and feet of Jesus in a lost and broken world.
Remember..fear is normal and even useful. It reminds us to careful so we don't fall off of high things or burn ourselves on the hot stove. However, when we give over to it, fear cripples us and can cause us to harm ourselves or one another. It is a tool of evil when used this way. We must be careful to seek wisdom in Christ and use that wisdom to temper our actions.
The COVID-19 is an unprecedented situation that has been making an impact on our world and our community. Right now, things are changing day to day. As a church, we will do our best to honor and care for you, and to keep you informed of changes to our ministries and events as they occur. We are striving for an appropriate and balanced approach to COVID-19, and we trust you will do the same.
Our leadership is in communication with local government officials and will use this page to update with any changes day to day. We pray our church will use this as an opportunity to show love, concern, compassion, and care, to move away from isolation, and to engage the darkness with the light of hope as we help people to find and follow Jesus.
