Hawley Vining Is Conference Quiet Disciple
Hawley Vining
was named
Quiet Disciple in
the Young Adult
category for the
Rocky Mountain
Conference. She was unanimously
chosen as the Young Adult nominee to represent the conference,
which includes Colorado, Utah, and
half of Wyoming. From Hawley’s
nomination: “Hawley brings energy
and creativity to the church. She is
a young mother of three small boys
and keeps them active in everything
in which she participates. Hawley
led flood relief efforts on behalf of
our church in September of 2013.
She started a MOPS program from
the ground up in Berthoud. She
sings in the choir. She heads up the
hospitality events in our church.
Hawley quietly works with others,
relieving them when they need
child care, providing fundraising
efforts for Berthoud schools, and
working with others to showcase
their talents. She is a leader with
her faith evident in everything that
she does; Hawley does not step into
any formal leadership role but
works tirelessly from behind the
scenes. She is truly a quiet
disciple.”
Congratulations, Hawley!

Mission Trip Pancake Breakfast Earns
$434 for Española Mission Trip
A pre-worship service pancake
breakfast on Sunday, May 22 ,
earned $434 toward BUMC’s mission trip to McCurdy Ministries
(formerly McCurdy School) in Española, New Mexico, set for July 10
-16. A group of BUMC members
will spend a week helping to maintain, repair, and refurbish the mission school, which has been a vital
ministry for more than 100 years.
McCurdy School was started in
1912, when United Brethren
Deaconness Mellie Perkins came to
Velarde, New Mexico. The school
opened on October 21, 1912, with
four students. At that time the mission was the only school of any kind
in the Española Valley.
For more than 100 years McCurdy
has shared the love of Christ in the
Española area. Current plans indicate the belief that these ministries
will continue to be the hands of
Christ for the next 100 years!
We at BUMC are proud to be a
small part of this ministry.

Here’s a short list of directions for
getting an event, church-related or
personal, on the church facility use
calendar:
1. Check the calendar on the website (www.berthoudumc.org) to
see if the date and time you
want are free.
2. Fill out a Calendar Request
Form (on the website, or available in hard copy in Van Amburg Hall) to provide all the
information necessary.
3. Email or deliver the form to the
church office. After the trustees
or pastor approve your request,
the secretary will enter your
event on the calendar.
4. Check the website calendar
after a few days to make sure
you’re on it.
Even events that occur on or about
the same time every year need to
be re-entered into the facility use
calendar each year, so make it part
of your regular planning to get
date, time, duration, and any needed prep time calendared well in
advance.
Competition for space and time on
the calendar are signs that BUMC
is growing and serving the community. Thank God for that, and thank
you for your kindness and consideration.
“Painless” Ways to
Contribute to Our
Church

the church office (preloaded
with $5). Reload your card at
the supermarket and use it to
buy groceries and gas. Church

2
Save your Hays Market

brings in cash for our church!
Recently we received a check for
$517.95 from King Soopers and
another from Hays Market for

while you are buying things you
need anyway yields good financial
results for the church. These
checks go into a contingency fund

I moved to Colorado with my parents about 20 years ago and went to
Berthoud Elementary, Turner Middle School, Berthoud High, and
UNC in Greeley, where I received
my Bachelors of Music with an emphasis in Classical Guitar. After that
I went to Germany to learn to speak,
read, and write German. I lived there
for about 8 months and loved every
minute. Now I have the wonderful
opportunity to work here at BUMC
as Youth Coordinator.

My earliest memory of church was
seeing my peers in the first grade
wearing Vacation Bible School
shirts. I was perplexed as to why
anyone would go to church on Sunday and then choose to go the next
morning for five more days. But as I
grew older I’ve grown more curious
about life and its meaning and the
person of Jesus Christ.
I was baptized at 13, and since then
I’ve felt the need to learn about God.
I attended Youth Group at Grace
Place and was an active member for
years. In college, I did a personal
pursuit of understanding the Bible.
The more I learned about the book,
the more I learned about its focus:
Jesus. I’ve become a committed
follower of Jesus Christ, and it is my
hope to serve the needs of this
church well.—Robby Kleber
