I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength to do His work. He considered me trustworthy and appointed me to serve Him. Oh how generous and gracious our Lord was. He filled me with the faith and love that come from Christ Jesus.

Excerpts from Thank You Letter from Brian Scales


Brian Hampton and I had such a nice time visiting CUC and are so grateful for the opportunity to share in great detail the mission of Murphy-Harpst. You continue to be so generous and supportive, and we look forward to doing even more with you all.

Thanks also, for the incredible gift to Murphy-Harpst. Your continuing generosity is literally saving the lives of our children and giving them the hope and healing they deserve. I hope to see you in February if you’re able to come out for the birthday celebration CUC is doing in Cedartown.

Time for CUC Small Group Dinners! 


These gracious events give CUC’ers a chance to gather in smaller groups and really get to know one another. The host household provides the entree and each guest brings a side dish. The host family finds a good date for all guests assigned to them and they organize the menu. If you don’t have a chance to sign up in class, please contact Mary Serafina  or Kris Taylor. You’ll be glad you did!
