Media Team

Media Team

College UMC is seeking volunteers to assist with technology and media for both services. If you are interested in helping with the sound board and projection system, please complete the contact us form.

Hospitality Team

Hospitality Team

This team welcomes our guests in worship, gives out bulletins, assists with the offering and makes sure the needs of our guests are met.  When you come to worship at College UMC we want guests to feel warmly welcomed and to find God’s presence here.  If you are new, we want to be sure you get a Welcome Bag and, hopefully, complete a Connect Sheet in the bulletin.  Serving on this team is one of the vital parts of our worship at CUMC.  If you have the gift of hospitality and want to help people feel welcomed here, this is a ministry to check out.

Missions Team

Missions Team

The Missions Team is a strong component of our efforts to make a difference in our community and beyond.  This team plans, conducts, and coordinates with area agencies to serve many needs in our community.  The August Free Clothes Closet is one example where we seek donations of clothing and offer it free of cost to those who need it.  We are constantly keeping our neighbors in need in the Warrenton area in our efforts to serve others.  If you have a heart for helping others, this is a great place for you!  For more on getting involved with the Mission Team at CUMC, contact the Church Office at the “Contact Us” link found on the Home Page.
