~ Our new live streaming is a real blessing at Cedar Grove!  If you know of anyone that can't make it to church in person on a Sunday, then please invite them to visit online via cgumc.org/live.


~ Have you noticed that the Scripture reading on Sunday mornings is now often done by lay people?  If you would like to read the Scriptures on any given Sunday please let Pastor Glen know.  If someone has not already taken that day, the office will send you an email with the text so you will be ready on Sunday or the pastor always has a printed version of the text at the pulpit.
~ If you would like offering envelopes, please contact the Church office at 410-867-7417 or by email at office@cgumc.org.

Tuesday Morning Bible Study – Pastor Glen has a 10am bible study on Tuesday mornings. The group meets in the Fellowship Hall.  All are welcome to attend. Just stop on by the study or contact the office.  

The once a month Bible class will study the Book of Revelation during September 2018 thru May 2019. We will study every chapter of the book, look at all the various ways of understanding it including how it has been understood through the history of the church, learn the meaning of words like pre-millennial, eschatology, apocalyptic, mid-tribulation, rapture, and other such words that get bantered about in discussions of this book.  We will also look at what Jesus says in the Gospels about His return, the impact of the Old Testament on the Book of Revelation, and other important topics.  Look for the signup sheet in the church narthex and you can sign-up to attend either the Monday morning 10am class (always held on the Monday the day before the third Tuesday of the month) or the Tuesday evening class at 7pm (always the third Tuesday of the month).  If you have any questions about this class, please contact Pastor Glen. Note: If Christ returns before the first class, the class is cancelled!
