“It is my judgement, therefore, that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God. Instead we should write to them, telling them to abstain from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood.” (AD 50).

Why Chapel Roswell is Working
Eric Lee is our CUC speaker Sunday. His topic, “Why Chapel Roswell is Working”. Eric has had quite an impact on RUMC during his time here and this will be our last time to hear him before he moves on to his new church. His last day at RUMC is June 10.
We are thankful for our CUC refreshments each week. This Sunday they will be provided by Norma Taylor, Pat & Pat Cooney, and Daphne Fradl.

Bringing Hope to Honduras
Our speaker last Sunday, Phil Dodson, talked on bringing help to Honduras, one lunch at a time, through the Lunches for Learning program.
CUC has sent members to Honduras on mission trips and has contributed through the church to Lunches For Learning,
but it was suggested that if individuals are so led, they could make individual donations to the program. ($150 feeds one child lunches for a year). (Lunches for Learning, Inc., P.O. Box 2146, Roswell 30077) (lunchesforlearning.org)
Must Ministries Lunch Program
We will be collecting bags of apples in CUC for the MUST Summer Lunch program. Every Sunday through the months of June and July please bring bags of apples as you are able and they will be placed with the lunch crews for distribution with the bag lunches.
Last year we made 2400 lunches and plan to do that again this year. Our first date is Tuesday, June 12, 9:00 am, in the Fellowship Hall. We will be passing the clipboard for volunteers to make the lunches. They will be ham sandwiches this year. It takes about 15 volunteers to put these lunches together.
The CUC MUST Lunch Committee consists of Sandy and Bill Griffin, Martha Jane Mason, Jeff and Lesleigh Coelho, Jim Boswell, Claudia Phelps
From the Fellowship Committee:
There will be a CUC Patriotic Potluck Picnic in the DOD on Wednesday, June 27th! Save the date! Plan to bring potluck and games to share.
