CUC’s Children in Worldwide Missions
Lynn & Dave Robert’s daughter Beth Roberts Ondrus left Thursday night for Thailand and Phnon Penh, Cambodia to attend an international Conference on Worldwide Human Trafficking Problems. Beth has built and operates a store within her church in Naperville, Illinois where they sell items made by people rescued from Human Trafficking. She is also on the Board of Shrishti International who along with other organizations operate Refugee Centers where they are taught skills, or use skills they have to make items to sell to earn money and be able to support themselves and families as well as provide housing for them.
Linda & Jim Boswell’s granddaughter, Courtney Cox, Jackson MS. will be returning to the US on Friday after spending a year on the World Race program sponsored by Adventures in Mission. She has been in eleven different countries for about one month at a time working with teams in teaching English, orphanages, construction, evangelism, and rights of women and children. Next January, she will enter Dallas Theological Seminary to earn a master’s degree in Christian counseling.
Be inspired to serve like Jesus in our church and community. As Linda King announced in CUC Class , you are invited to this “Multiply” event on Saturday, August 26, 8:00 am – 1:00 pm in the chapel for breakfast and lunch and a time of worship with Tom Davis, author Jo Saxton, Tom Alterman, and the Chapel Roswell Band.

New Adult Bible Studies and Classes
As a church, we are called to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We hope you will join us for one of the bible study opportunities coming up this fall here at RUMC as we seek to grow in our knowledge of God, scripture, and faith. With a variety of topics, each of these classes will engage in deep study, rich discussion, and communal prayer as participants learn and grow together. Go to rumc.com/bible studies or pick up a booklet in the lobby to learn more.

Small Things Support Our Various Mission Outreaches!
Thank you, CUC members, for participating in a project that helps Red Bird Mission School in rural Kentucky. The Labels for Education that we have sent to this school are among the 1,500,000 required for the school to be awarded a new school van by the Campbell Company. This van will provide transportation for students depending on this school for their education and also for trips students make during the year. Labels for Education are not printed on as many grocery items any more, but they will be accepted at Red Bird School until the end of 2017. Any you have will be sent for other needs there.
Please continue to save the pull tops from soda cans to support the Ronald McDonald House which Nancy and Johnie Wright are collecting.
