Praying for Those You Love

We will be having Debbie Goodwin teaching the CUC lesson again this week. Her subject is “Praying for Those You Love”. We are looking forward to her lesson. She will continue to speak based on the scripture…

The earnest prayer of a righteous man has great power and produces wonderful results. James 5:16b

CUC Sunday School Class

We continue to have class both in the classroom and on Zoom. We still have Zoom for those of CUC who prefer to stay at home or who are away from home! (And for those with or exposed to Covid. ) CUC is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Those attending class via Zoom should be signed into Zoom and admitted no later than 9:40 AM to prevent feedback noise. Thanks for everyone’s cooperation on this!

CUC Attendance

July 3


One of the strengths of CUC is the number of members who participate in a small group. If you are not a member of a small group and would like to know about how they are structured and how they operate and would like information please call Gale or Roger Davis .

CUC Wednesday Night Out

CUC will dine at the Thai House [Menu], 10930 Crabapple Rd., Roswell at 5:30pm on July 20.
We had 22 members enjoying the outing at Chicago’s this past Wednesday. If you don’t have the opportunity to sign up in class or have to cancel, please phone or email – Ann or Larry Douglas by Tuesday noon.

CUC Fall Retreat

We are looking forward to our 2022 CUC Retreat with the program being led by Michael Cromwell. If you haven’t made your reservations for the retreat, October 18th thru the 20th, and you plan to attend, please do so. We are holding a block with a special rate and location. Please contact The Ridges on Lake Chatuge (706) 896-2262 and follow the prompts . When you make your reservation use block code CUC2022. Please inform them the number of occupants. If you have any problem contact Jim Morman.

The retreat committee hopes we can provide everyone with a memorable experience. The list of attendees has almost reached 50. We will be furnishing y’all with the cost of meals and incidentals. We will keep the cost reasonable and do the best we can . Due to the inflationary times it is difficult to establish a cost this far out. We are very excited and hope we can provide each and every one with a blessed time .
