Revelation 21:4 –  “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death, or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

He will wipe every tear from their eyes

CUC  is  blessed  with  great  speakers  who  present  the  most  interesting  lessons.

Bob Fletcher has our lesson again on Sunday. He will conclude his series on Revelation. His  scripture  is Revelation 21:4

 CUC Sunday School Class on Zoom

Thank goodness for Zoom! We had 81 participants last Sunday including Jim McCormick and former CUC members JB and Aldona Titus.

This Sunday will be the 24th Sunday we have met on Zoom!

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.

Online Attendance Register for all SS Classes

Be sure that   you register your attendance – either Zooming or on-site participation online using your personal cell phone or tablet. 

Class members will initially go online to: to register within Ministry Platform.  After that, each time you sign-on you will just need to select the event that you are attending to register.  If you are attending CUC on Zoom you will do the same to register your attendance.

The system will allow you to choose between “Sunday School – 9:30 am” or “Sunday School – 11:00 am.” When you chose the time that your class normally meets, the system will then automatically connect your attendance to the CUC class.

 RUMC Sunday Services

Be sure to live stream the church service. Go to at the time of the Sunday service you want to watch. Be sure to register your attendance for that too!

A Note from CUC President


In the 2005 Egg Bowl, Ole Miss didn’t stand a chance against MSU’s one-man army. Senior halfback Jerious Norwood rushed for 204 yards and scored four touchdowns in State’s 35-14 win. Though Norwood was a one-man army on the scoreboard, the win belonged to the team. 

A similar situation will occur when Christ returns. He will be a one-man army, a rider on a white horse, who will destroy those forces responsible for disorder and chaos in God’s world. The image of Jesus as a warrior may shock and discomfort some of us, but it should excite and thrill us. It reminds us that God will unleash his awesome power to effect justice and righteousness in a world that persecutes his people and slanders his name. It should also cause a sense of urgency in us because on that glorious day when that one-man army returns, the time for decisions for Christ will have passed. 

For now, Jesus has an army at his disposal of billions of Christians around the world. We are Christian soldiers; we have a world to conquer – before he returns as a one-man army to finish the job. 

“The rest of them were killed by the sword that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse”, Revelation 19:21

May God Bless,


Treasurer’s  Update

 Reimbursements to the individuals who have been shopping for the summer food program now total $5,705.

A motion will be made in CUC this Sunday to provide a $500 sponsorship for the Malone Dodson Golf Tournament for the benefit of the RUMC Foundation.  As long as there has been a Malone Dodson Golf Tournament, CUC has always provided a sponsorship.  Sponsorships reduce the tournament costs so that more of the proceeds go directly to the Foundation.
