The CMU/UMC Connection
CMU Sunday: Volunteers from Central Methodist University visited United Methodist congregations across mid-Missouri, north central Missouri, and eastern Missouri on October 28, 2012 for our first CMU Sunday involving 26 volunteers. Faculty, staff and administration from the university attended 25 UMCs across the state. These volunteers brought greetings and words of thanks on behalf of CMU President Marianne Inman, invited congregations to visit CMU, provided information regarding CMUís academic and extracurricular programs as well as responded to questions about the University, including addressing admission requirements for prospective students. The next CMU Sunday is scheduled for February 24, 2013. CMU welcomes additional requests from interested churches. Contact Michael Pope, UMC liaison, by calling 660-248-6390 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for a CMU Sunday in your church.
