CUC Mardi Gras Party
Be sure to mark your calendars for the Thursday, Feb 28th Mardi Gras dinner party at the Bradshaw Farms clubhouse The party will start at 6:00 PM and end sometime around 9:30 PM. Come join the fun!!”
This will be 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.
We have 41 people signed up already for the party, and we are excited about this great start!! The capacity of the Bradshaw Farms Clubhouse is 80, so there is plenty of room for more CUC’ers. The signup sheet will be passed around each Sunday until the party.
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
Murphy Harpst Mission Outreach
CUC is planning for our annual February birthday party at Murphy Harpst in Cedartown on Saturday, February 16. Let Betty Hunt know if you would go on that date to help with the party and/or to see what Murphy Harpst is all about.
CUC is collecting prizes for the party-goers. Pam Kramer at Murphy Harpst , when asked for suggestions of Bingo prizes, replied that those “that work best” are candy bars, drinks (Gatorade, teas, sodas), Ramen noodles, and decks of playing cards. On February 3 and 10 a basket will be passed to collect any cash donations to pay for party expenses. The committee appreciates any support the CUC Class provides for Murphy-Harpst Children’s Center.
CUC has received several heart-warming thank you notes/letters from the teenagers who received generous gift cards which were sent to Murphy Harpst paid for with CUC’s Christmas donations.

Supplies are needed for the Altar Your Life Mission Project. RUMC Youth will be supporting hurricane relief in Panama City, Florida this spring. Please consider bringing by February 8, the items listed on the email sent on Wednesday.
