CUC Newsletter – October 28, 2022

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6 NIV

Sunday, October 30, 2022

Dean Tucker will be providing a two part lesson on the Apocrypha on October 30th and November 6th. The Apocrypha is not considered, by most Protestant denominations, as the inspired word of God and was never canonized. Nevertheless, the Apocrypha was written by Godly men and thus considered of some value. Dean, a retired Oglethorpe professor, thanks the CUC class for the opportunity to present his research findings on the Apocrypha over the next two Sundays.

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! 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!

Must Neighborhood Pantry Update

Our next MUST Neighborhood Pantry is Monday, November 7th. Our August pantry served around 80 families. In September, that number grew to 125 families. Our October pantry served almost 175 families. This now makes the MUST Neighborhood Pantry on Mimosa the largest of MUST’s 32 neighborhood pantries!

Want to help? This month, we need three main things: Laundry detergent (the larger size to last a month), Feminine hygiene products (pads more popular than tampons), Dog food + Cat food + Cat litter.

Why dog/cat food? North Fulton Community Charities told us there is a high demand for pet food among their clients. One client said, “Sometimes, when I’m at my lowest point, my dog is the only one who loves me. Thank you for helping me take care of him and show him that same love.” We can help with this!…

Donations can be dropped-off at the pantry building at RUMC Sundays 9:00-12:00 PM or on Monday, November 7th 12:00 PM-4:00 PM.
