When Jesus Prayed For Us

This Sunday Mark Goodman is our CUC speaker. He will be using the scripture of John 17, when Jesus prayed for us. We always are inspired by Mark’s message.

Other Opportunities to Support Our Missions

From Betty Hunt:

CUC Class members have two easy ways to support Murphy-Harpst Children’s Center in Cedartown, GA. A shopper simply sets up an account with any Publix Supermarket. Then, the next time you shop there, type in your phone number while the cashier is ringing up your order. The school on that campus will automatically be credited with a percentage of your purchase.

Amazon Smile is a second way for customers to support their favorite charitable organization every time they shop with Amazon. If you choose Murphy-Harpst Children’s Center, Amazon will donate a portion of the price of eligible purchases to that Methodist facility.

Be sure to sign up with Publix and with to support Murphy Harpst Children’s Home.

Every Sunday PRINTED INSTRUCTIONS for participation in these two opportunities are available in our classroom.
