Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up.  “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they among so many?” 

Jesus Said, “Have the people sit down.”  There was plenty of grass in that place, and the men sat down, about five thousand of them.  Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted.  He did the same with the fish.

CUC Retreat this week!


It will be a very memorable retreat in a very  beautiful location. Check in is 3 PM on Wednesday. Check  out  11:00  Friday.

In addition  to  all  the information  that  has been  provided, just  one  word of  caution….there is a 3 mile drive between the main campus and the convention center. (Berry is the  largest college campus in the world.) There  are  lots of  deer! Drive slowly. Be careful you  don’t run into any of them unexpectedly!

A White Christmas for Murphy Harpst


As the result of CUC asking about a practical need at Murphy-Harpst Children’s Center, we will be collecting white bath towels for the teenagers there.  The teenagers are responsible for doing their own laundry, and towels are in demand.

To give this project a festive flavor, a large laundry hamper decorated with a big ribbon will be available in the CUC classroom on Sundays starting November 5th.  After December 10th  all these gifts will be sent to Murphy-Harpst by way of Pam Kramer, a staff member who lives in Marietta. Thanks for sharing Christmas Blessings!

Questions?  Contact Betty Hunt, Norma Hills, or Claudia Phelps

What to do with Leftover Halloween Candy ?

Please plan to bring extra Halloween candy to CUC  and we will collect it for Murphy Harpst to send with the towels. There  are  75 residents  and  16  clinical  professionals on  staff there who will enjoy the treats! 

Compassion & Community

Be  sure  to  see today’s RUMC Friday  Blast with  the  video which  was  shown at  the 11:00 service last Sunday with our own  Betty Hunt talking about  Murphy Harpst.
