CUC Newsletter – June 17, 2018


Before this faith came, we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed. So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith. Now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law. You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. For there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male or female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 2; 23-29

CUC’s Wednesday Night Out

WNO     Olive-Garden-Logo-Redesign-2014

WNO for June 20 is at Olive Garden, 905 Holcomb Bridge Rd, Roswell.
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’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

Must Ministries Lunch Program

Must Lunches 06-12-2018

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 next date is June 26, Tuesday, 9:00 am, in the Fellowship Hall. We have enough volunteers signed up for that date but may need more some later on.

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:

Patriotic Potluck Picnic!

There will be a CUC Patriotic Potluck Picnic in the DOD on Wednesday, June 27th! Save the date! Signup sheets will be passed in class. Plan to bring potluck dishes The Fellowship Committee is providing barbecue, buns, and iced tea. The Treble Makers will be singing for us.




By unanimous vote at our last retreat, we are returning to Chick-fil-A’s Winshape facility at Berry College for 2018. The facility, the staff, and the amenities are outstanding.

From a cost standpoint we are estimating the following rates: (subject to slight change)

  • Married couple – $465
  • Single – sharing a room $280
  • Single – not sharing a room $350
  • These rates include all meals, coffee breaks, ice cream breaks, etc.

We are not ready to announce our program at this time but feel the class will be well pleased and blessed by being there.

Please be prayerfully considering your participation in this annual event. More information will be coming, but we want to get an initial indication concerning your attendance and we want you to get it on your calendar to avoid conflicts.

We had a great response to the retreat sign up last week – 58 are signed up to attend. We will continue to “Pass the clipboard” this week. Deposits will be due in late June. The program is shaping up very well and will be announced soon! Questions? Ask Roger Davis.
