“But when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, you will receive power and will tell people about me everywhere — in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Sunday, December 30, 2018
We are fortunate this Sunday to have a very special guest to bring our lesson which will add insight and meaning to our scripture verse above.
Courtney Cox, granddaughter of Linda and Jim Boswell, will share her perspectives gained from a year long experience with Adventures in Mission. During her time with Adventures In Missions, she basically traveled around the world and had opportunities to interact with other cultures and people groups as they presented the gospel and offered hope in very diverse situations. Courtney’s presentation will help us appreciate how young people are making themselves available to go to the ends of the earth, as Jesus commanded.
Come prepared to be blessed and challenged!!
We are thankful for our CUC refreshments each week. This Sunday they will be provided by Sandy & George Martin and Rose & Jim Lappe

CUC Ronald McDonald House Support
Nancy Wright reports that she recently took 27 pounds of pop tops collected by CUC members to one of Atlanta’s two Ronald McDonald Houses.
Since 2010 pop tops have provided a total of $133, 000 toward these Ronald McDonald houses which have provided lodging every year for over 2000 families of ill or injured children. It seems like such a little thing to do, to take tops off of can tops, but $133,000 in 8 years is not insignificant!!
As you make your year-end donations to the RUMC Foundation, don’t forget the CUC Endowment.
New Bible Studies in 2019
Start the new year off by re-engaging with your faith through participating in one of the many RUMC Bible studies! New studies will begin in January, with offerings almost every day of the week, both morning and evening. All are welcome; no previous study required!
