Murphy Harpst Update

Nine CUC members went to Murphy Harpst on Saturday, February 10th to put on a well-received February birthday party for the residents there.

Now the rest of us can keep up our support of Murphy Harpst by remembering to always use our Murphy Harpst tags when we shop at Publix. Murphy Harpst receives about $3000 from Publix each month as a result of people using those tags.

Current Donations to Murphy Harpst made by Publix

Homestretch Peachtree Tea

The 11th annual Peachtree Tea to benefit Homestretch will be held February 27, 11:00 – 1:30 at the Country Club of the South with a champagne reception, luncheon and auction. CUC always has a nice turnout to this event and Lynn Adcock would like to get a full table or more together from our class.

So far at least 10 CUC members are planning to attend. Contact Lynn or sign up on the sheet being passed on Sunday if you are interested in supporting Homestretch and attending. Tickets are $80.

RUMC GIC Coming Up


The theme of this year’s GIC, March 1-4, is Life on Mission: Hope in the Face of Injustice, with an emphasis on human trafficking. Plan to attend at least some of the sessions. CUC will be having one of the missionaries as our speaker that Sunday or members may choose to attend the “Taking Hope to the Streets” session.

Tortured for Christ Needs Your Help!


The Griffins, Davis’ and Petersons have ordered tickets to see the movie Tortured For Christ.

It is based on the book of the same name written by Richard Wurmbrand. He was a minister in Romania. After the communists took control he was arrested. He served 14 years in prison because he refused to renounce his faith. The movie is being shown March 5 at the GTC Merchants Walk Stadium theater at 7:30. Tickets are $12.50.

If you are interested in joining three exceptionally friendly couples, please order your tickets from the below web site. Your credit card will not be charged until they have 44 tickets sold. If enough tickets are not sold by 2/26, the movie will be cancelled.
Please join us. Share the Link:

CUC Prayer Requests

  • Linda Mooney’s husband Bob – that his back surgery this past Wednesday is successful
