GREAT BLOOD PRESSURE CHALLENGE:
The CUMC Health Ministry Team was challenging each member of our congregation to get their blood pressure checked regularly. Once a month, the Health Team offered a complimentary service of performing Blood Pressure Checks the second Sunday of every month. If you were unable to have your blood pressure checked on the second Sunday of the month, then a member of Health Ministry Team member was happy to do it at a more convenient time for you. The challenge has come to an end but it isn't too late to have your Blood Pressure checked here at church. Just see a member of the team and they will be happy to assist you. Let 2020 be more of a healthier year for you.

Memorial Day Parade
May 27, 2019
The weather was beautiful during (we were all waiting for it to rain - again!!!). This time, we had Pete's truck and a little flatbed with sides painted red, white and blue. Our church sign was ensconced in the bed of the truck. After gathering at the church and attaching many veteran's pictures on the sides of the flatbed, along with those pictures carried by the riders as well as the walkers, we had quite a group. Upon arriving at the starting point for the parade, we parked and watched the Crete Memorial Day Program. There were many groups which took part in the program, such as Crete Park District Preschool (the little kids recited the Pledge of Allegiance), the Crete-Monee High School Band, Amvets Auxiliary Post 84, Crete American Legion Post #1291, and the Will County Honor Guard. Pastor Frank Italiano from Trinity Lutheran Church took part and reminded us what the day was for. The kickoff for the parade was promptly done and off we went! The spectators on the parade route appreciated what we were trying to do, ie remember veterans and their sacrifice, which is what the day is for!
