CUC Small Group Dinners

CUC Fall Small Group Dinners are being organized with the hostesses now being notified about the names of their guests. This is a great opportunity to get to know your CUC classmates better while enjoying a great time out. If you would like to attend but did not have the opportunity to sign up in class contact Kris Taylor.


Participation in a small group has been a blessing to many members of the CUC Class. This Sunday there will again be a short announcement about small groups and an informal meeting after the class (in the back of the room near the piano) to provide information to those interested in being a part of this ministry. If you have questions or would like to join a group please contact Gale or Roger Davis.

CUC Fall Retreat

The theme of our CUC retreat, led by Dr. Joe McKechnie will be “ Under Construction”.

About 53 of our CUC members plan to relax and commune with God and nature at the Lodge in the Amicalola Falls State Park, October 8-10, in the splendid north GA Mountains. Information about amount and when payment will be due for extra retreat expenses will be coming soon. If you have any questions contact George Waite or Tom Knight.

Coming soon! Sandy Griffin and Kris Taylor are starting work to organize our large class into groups by geographical locations so that if someone needs a helping hand, transportation, or whatever, we will be aware of who lives near us who can come assist when and if help of some sort is needed.
