CUC Newsletter – April 11, 2020

“I am with you always to the close of the age”

Matthew 28:20

He is Alive Again!

We are fortunate to have our favorite teacher, Dr. Jim McCormick as our CUC speaker this Easter Sunday. His subject is “He is Alive Again”. His text is: Matthew 28:1-10, 16-20.

Masks for CUC Members

In the spirit of assuring that all of our CUC members are adequately protected from this Corona-19 virus, two of our members, Virginia Hardy and Nancy Wright, have been busy making masks as gifts for CUC members, hoping this will help our CUC family in some small way. The masks have been delivered to Jacob’s office which is open 9-5 Monday-Thursday. (Just ask when you pick up your meals.)

RUMC COVID-19 Virus Response

Be sure to live stream the church service on Sunday. Go to at the time of the Sunday service you want to watch.

Meals from the RUMC Kitchen

Jacob and his staff and volunteers continue to provide delicious meals from the RUMC kitchen to help us through this time of isolation.

Just drive up to the Fellowship Hall entrance and honk your horn and your meals will be delivered to your car. The plan is to serve a hot lunch Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 12:00 – 2:00. They will have selections of frozen meals as well, available until 4:00.

While it is preferred that orders are made online, payments of cash or check are still accepted.

Same for frozen meals – order online or email or call Jacob during daytime hours and just pull up to the curb!
