CUC Fellowship Plans

At Sunday’s CUC Class Mike Story announced the Fellowship Committee’s planned events for the next 6 months.

  • Feb 28 – Mardi Gras dinner party at the Bradshaw Farms clubhouse. A “potluck+” where guests will bring salads, appetizers, deserts, etc., and the main entrée will be prepared by the Fellowship committee. Decorations will have a Mardi Gras theme, and wearing Mardi Gras apparel will be welcomed. There will be a $7.50 cover charge for the clubhouse rental and entrée ingredients. Sign-up sheets will start Sunday, Jan 27.
  • June 26 – DOD Building CUC Potluck, coordinated by Claudia Phelps, with entertainment, and the same venue as our successful potluck a year ago. Claudia will coordinate information sharing and planning with the CUC at future Sunday Class gatherings.
  • Trips – Patsy Lanham is organizing for two potential trips: one to the Chick Fil A headquarters, and one for an Atlanta “Beltline Tour”. More information will be shared in future CUC meetings by Patsy.
  • Small Group Dinners – Kris Taylor is coordinating these, and she will be putting out sign-up sheets in March for dinners to be scheduled in April and May.

CUC Class Prayer Requests

CUC now has a prayer request basket at the door where you enter the classroom. These will be read at the microphone at the appropriate time. This is to help eliminate the problem of not being heard when the speaker requesting prayers is away from the microphone. Prayer requests can also be emailed to: Sara Beecham

RUMC Name Tags

RUMC will provide magnetic name tags for you to wear for church events. If you would like one contact Gale Davis to be added to the list. If you lose the magnet to fasten it on, you can get a replacement from the church office.
