But Jesus came and touched them. “Get up,” he said. “Don’t be afraid.” When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.

Matthew 17:7-8.

Several of our very talented CUC members have donated great raffle items for the on-line auction that day. CUC has a number of people going and we carpool from the church. Talk to Lynn Adcock for information.

Get Your Cans to Church!

February is RUMC’s month to help stock the Food Pantry at North Fulton Community Charities. To simplify the process, we will have a collection point in our classroom this Sunday and the next. The Boy Scouts will pick up the items and deliver them to NFCC.

The ten recommended items to bring are: Dried Beans (1lb Bags), Tomato Paste, Canned Fish/Meat, Peanut Butter/Jelly, Cream Soups & Regular Soups, Broth, All Toiletries, Juice Boxes, Canned Fruit & Canned Peas, Hamburger Helper, Baking Items. However, any food item you bring will be appreciated.

A number of members of our CUC class volunteer as helpers in the Food Pantry; others pick up food items from local establishment on a regular basis, and others in general operation of NFCC. They can attest to the significance of this ministry to the community.

Interesting fact: Malone Dodson was actively involved in the founding of NFCC almost 40 years ago!!

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.

Please pray for needs expressed and unexpressed for CUC members, and for friends and relatives of CUC class members who are facing illnesses, loss of loved ones, and important decisions to be made.
