I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.

Christ the Victor
The CUC speaker for Sunday is Paul Beecham. Paul will be concluding the 24 Hours that Changed the World series with the lesson title of “Christ the Victor”. Paul always has a thought-provoking and spiritually uplifting lesson.

CUC Class Attendance
April 16 – Easter – no class
Funeral Services for Betty Magaro will be in the Chapel at 2:00 this Friday, April 21.
There will be a reception to meet the family at 1:00.
For the past several years Betty & Frank Magaro have been included on our prayer lists but many CUC members have never met either of them. Here is part of their story. Betty and Frank were each married to their previous spouses for over 50 years. The two couples were close friends. Both of them were caregivers for their respective spouses for several years. After their
After their deaths, Betty and Frank were married and found a new place to worship and fellowship together at RUMC and especially in CUC class. Betty was one of the founding members of CUC’s “Betty Bunch”. Betty had prepared for and was looking forward to teaching a CUC lesson when she had to have heart surgery and subsequently suffered a stroke which has left her wheelchair-bound and speechless for the past 8 or 9 years.
Frank devotedly cared for her in their home, then at Chambrel, and then they went to Manor on the Square for assisted living, where in recent years CUC has celebrated both their 90th birthdays with them. Recently they moved to the Brookdale-Neese Road Assisted Living facility in Woodstock. (756 Neese Road, 30188)
Frank has requested that any memorials given in memory of Betty should be donated to the RUMC Foundation through the CUC Endowment.

With this trip, the Medical Missions team wants to collect dental supplies such as floss, small tubes of toothpaste, and toothbrushes. In total, the team’s goal is 1200(+) of each item, and all donated supplies will be distributed to the communities in Peru in which they will be serving so they have lots of collecting to do! Their deadline for collecting will be May 15th, as they will need some time to pack and prepare the supplies for the trip. All supplies will be kept at the RUMC campus in the Dod. She will have a box sitting right inside the entrance labeled: Peru Dental Supplies. Johnie and Nancy Wright will be collecting supplies in CUC class and will be happy to get items to the Dod.
Please continue to save the pull tops from soda cans to support the Ronald McDonald House and bring them in to Nancy Wright.
For Red Bird Missions watch for those boxtops and labels for Betty Hunt.
