CUC Newsletter – January 24, 2019

It was by faith that Noah built a large boat to save his family from the flood. He obeyed God, who warned him about things that had never happened before. By his faith Noah condemned the rest of the world, and he received the righteousness that comes by faith.

CUC Sunday Cares and Concerns

On Sundays there is a basket with cards and a pen for you to write down your prayer requests and/or thanksgivings. It will be on the table to the left as you come in the double doors. After you fill it out, give the card to Sandy Griffin and she will read it from the podium. Our prayer requests are too important and we want everyone to hear them.

Mardi Gras Party

CUC’s second annual Mardi Gras Party will be on February 25, at 6:00 PM at the Huntcliff River Club. Our first one was such fun that over 70 people have signed up already! Red beans and rice Jambalaya will be served. This will be “pot luck” for sides and appetizers. Sign up on Sunday morning! Contact Garlinn or Mike Story with any questions.

CUC Neighborhood Care Groups

The Neighborhood Care Group list is now updated and has been sent out via email by Dave Roberts and have now been incorporated into our CUC contact list by Doug Tatom.

If you notice that anyone in your group has been absent for a while send them a card or a phone call. Have a big dinner party, or dessert and coffee and play games, or come to Wednesday Night Dinner and sit together. Anything you can think of that is good fellowship!

Thanks to Doug Tatom!
