At Groundlings Summer Camp 2021, we will be hosting weekly donation drives to help our Long Beach houseless persons. We would like to invite the whole church into this service opportunity, too. 100% of the donations will be delivered in coordination with Jumpstart Ministries — directly to our Long Beach houseless in the LA River bank encampment areas. Clothing donations need to be new or clean/gently used, please.
Items can be dropped off at church. Contact Rebecca (email@example.com) for more info.
Cal Heights in committed to supporting our youth and young people to grow in their faith through camp! This includes SSP, Conference Camps, youth trips, and other ministries. Camperships have long been a tradition at Cal Heights as people sponsor those attending the trips go help make them affordable for all. In the past these funds have been short-term assistance raised on a trip-by-trip basis. This year, as we head into a new future, we are asking for your help in two areas:
Thank you for your generosity in helping our children, youth, and young adults experience the joys and life-transforming spirit of camping here at CHUMC. Contact Pastor Doug for more information.
The Cal Heights Drama Club has been sharing the joys of musical theater with children ages 4-14 for over 10 years! We've moved to an online format due to COVID and are currently developing a new format, preparing kids for solos and soliloquy! The new format will allow kids to learn more about how to sing, act, and do a little choreography as they work with our director's to create an individualized experience and a group "variety show" later this Fall. Contact us for more information at PastorDoug@calheightsumc.org
Many have been expressing a desire to see and connect with people during this time of quarantine. We here at the church can provide a safe and sanitary place for people to gather in a socially-distanced atmosphere for groups under eight people. These groups would have the opportunity to explore areas of faith, history, scripture, and service as they meet on a regular basis for spiritual socializing and discussion. These small groups have been a hallmark of Weslyan churches from the very beginning of the Methodist movement and are so vitally important in today's isolated climate. Click on the button below to sign-up and then we'll help groups coordinate their meeting times and discussions.
Over the last couple months a small group of CHUMC leaders has been gathering online to discuss and discern the direction that God would have us move in ministry. We believe that God is still active in today's church and that God will guide us to meet the needs of our community as we pray, listen, and reflect together. WE CAN USE YOUR HELP!!!
You can help this group of people discern God's call for our congregation by sharing your thoughts and reflections on the following three questions:
1) Who are we (CHUMC) now? Not who have we been. Not what have we been good at. Who are we right now, today?
2) Who are our neighbors now? This is about who the people around us are--their needs, their likes and dislikes, their age and interests.
3) What is God calling us to do now? This is the most important question for us to move forward as a congregation. If God is calling us to meet the needs of our community and bring the grace of God to them through ministry, what will that look like?
Click on the link below to send us a note of your thoughts and reflections on these three questions. IT WILL REALLY HELP
