If I could speak all the languages of earth and angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

Happy Father’s Day!
CUC has been an active supporter of Homestretch since its very beginning. This Sunday we will have Rose Burton, Homestretch Executive Director as our CUC speaker. She will update us on the mission of Homestretch to provide affordable temporary housing for working homeless families and how it has changed over the years.
We are thankful for our CUC refreshments each week. This week they will be provided by Lynda & Bob Leckie and Ann & Larry Douglas.
