What Can Stand in the Way?

Again for our CUC class we have  one  of  our  favorite  speakers. Scott Dickson has our lesson this coming Sunday. His title is 

“What can stand in the way?”.  He is using the scripture: Acts 8:36 : As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, “Look, here is water. What can stand in the way of my being baptized?” (NIV)

CUC Sunday School Class on Zoom

Just enter that meeting  ID when  you  start  Zoom and  you  will  be connected to  the  Sunday  School  meeting .  Doug normally starts the meeting about 9:15 am on Sundays.  This  gives  you  a chance to  say  Hello, and  then  the  class  starts at  9:30 am  sharpish!

Due to the limit of 100 participants Doug suggests that you watch the Class meeting on one device, such as your tablet, iPad, or computer so that it can be viewed by you and your significant other. This will give everyone a chance to view the class.

Scheduled Zoom meeting for CUC.

CUC Treasury

It  has  been  suggested that  in order to  maintain our CUC  treasury that  we send  checks to  our treasurer Charlie  Mason  for  the  amounts  we  would  normally  put in the  collection  basket  on Sunday  mornings.

MUST Summer Grocery Bag Program

RUMC is providing at least one $40 bag of groceries every week for needy families for ten (10) weeks for the MUST Summer Grocery food program. MUST needs us to do the shopping.

Members of CUC have contributed to our treasury for the MUST summer grocery program and have spent $3,344 from those contributions  so  far. Anyone who would like to buy and deliver items from the list to the church can do so.  Please keep your receipt and send or email a copy of your receipts for Charlie Mason and you will be reimbursed from  the  money  that  has  been  donated  for  the  MUST  Ministry.

This week’s message from  Scotty  Brewington :

A special treat this week… eggplant, zucchini, jalapenos, corn, fresh veggies from the RUMC garden and WOW!! Wonderful watermelons!!… Fresh produce continues to be the big game-changer with this program. A HUGE hit for all involved! Thank you for all you do for this community… 

Everything is needed again this week, especially cereal, spaghetti sauce, rice and tortillas. (By the way – we did a little “focus group” and asked some of the families in line this week which they preferred – white or yellow rice. Yellow rice was the clear winner! If you have a choice, make it yellow!) 

As always, the more fresh produce the better – onions, bell peppers, apples, oranges, lemons/limes, potatoes – and we can always use liquid dish soap, toothpaste and hand soap.  

The List: Spaghetti/pasta sauce, hot dogs/buns, rice (especially yellow!), jelly (grape), cereal, tortillas (corn or flour), block of cheese/packages of shredded cheese, mac & cheese, bags/cans of beans (bags are better),canned corn, canned tomatoes (diced, whole, sauce, etc.). 

REMEMBER:  We will be open for drop-offs on Sunday (7/12) and Monday (7/13) from 2:00-4:00 PM. To drop off, just come to the RUMC Fellowship Hall this Monday, pull up in front of the double-doors, honk your horn, and a volunteer will come get the groceries from your car.

Thanks for all you do!
