A Place of Hope

Rev. Nancy Lane is bringing us the CUC lesson this Sunday. Her topic is “A Place of Hope”. As Associate Pastor/Pastoral Care at RUMC for about the past 18 years Nancy is well known to us and her work and caring is known and appreciated by all of us. In the few times she has led our CUC class she always brings us a good message.

  • Maureen Osborn – Marietta NCG
  • Charlotte Burroughs – Alpharetta NCG
  • Sandy Griffin – Woodstock NCG
  • Margie Avery – Roswell 30076 NCG
