Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: “Men of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO AN UNKNOW GOD. Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you. The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands”.

CUC’s Wednesday Night Out
This past week’s Wednesday Night Out Dinner on June 6 at the Thai House, was attended by 34 CUC members.
CUC dinner for June 13 will be at Marlow’s Tavern, 625 Crossville Rd, Roswell (next to Pikes Nursery) at 5:30pm. The clipboard will be passed on Sunday to sign up. If you want to come and don’t sign up, please call Ann or Larry Douglas (770.363.3568) by noon Tuesday, June 12, so we can provide the restaurant with an accurate count.
It is always good to get contributions for this newsletter from CUC class members and committee chairs. It wouldn’t be at all interesting or useful to our CUC members and church staff without your input.
Next week from June 8 through June 16 anything that you wish to have sent out to CUC please send to Doug Tatom.
If you have a prayer request or an announcement to be included in the Friday email for Sunday June 17 to the CUC members, please send it to Doug by Thursday evening.
CUC CLASS OFFICERS FOR 2018-19
It’s time to beginning thinking about class officers for 2018-19 with responsibilities beginning in August. Sara Beecham, current Vice President, will move into the President position but many other jobs will likely be available.
Current committees have all done a great job and keeping some experienced persons on their current assignments is advisable. However, it is equally important to get new people involved.
A nominating committee will begin working on this in the next few weeks. Information on current class committees is available on the class web site (CUC Class Officers) and will also be available as a handout on Sunday. If you’re interested in serving on any committee or would like to change your current assignment, please let me know asap. My goal is to have everything tied down by mid-July.
Many thanks, Tom Knight
