CUC Newsletter – January 27, 2018

The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.

Proverbs 4:18-19

Murphy Harpst Birthday Party

Thank you, CUC Class, for generously supporting efforts to make our fourth annual birthday party at Murphy-Harpst Children’s Center on February 10 a success. Bingo games we visitors play with the residents are an important part of the afternoon, and small prizes won mean a lot to young winners.

The following are suggested prizes: decks of cards (regular playing cards or Uno or card games), hair accessories (bands big or small, headbands, brushes), small action figures or Legos, gel pens, Cokes/Dr. Pepper/Orange Fanta soda, Starburst/Sour Skittles/Pixie Stix, stuffed animals. The committee would appreciate class members shopping for any of these items or checking at home if you have them and can make those donations. You may have some other ideas for creative and appropriate prizes! A box in the classroom is available to receive them until Sunday, February 4. THANK YOU!

A signup sheet will come around on January 28 for names of class members who would like to share this memorable day. More of you are needed and welcome. Pam Kramer, our contact person there, will conduct a tour of the campus for anyone interested.

Little Things Mean a Lot!
