CUC Sunday School Class

Topic: CUC Zoom Meeting – February 5, 2023

Second Sunday Communion

First Sunday Chapel Communion has been moved to second Sundays at 8:30 a.m. for the remainder of 2023. Second Sunday Chapel Communion is a 30-minute service which includes the sacrament of Holy Communion, a short meditation, music, and a time of prayer. We look forward to seeing you there!

The Commons Project Update

On February 1, RUMC received our Land Disturbance Permit (LDP) from the City of Roswell, which marks the initial step in construction. Look for site fencing to be erected and a new foundation to be poured for the relocation of the pavilion to the northwest corner of the site; power and water has been cut off to the former Scout Hut, in preparation for its demolition.

Depending on the weather, we hope for this initial project completion in six to eight months. The start of construction will formally be marked with a ground-breaking event to be announced shortly. This has been a long time coming, and the Commons Committee wants to thank you for your support, donations, and patience. Watch for more updates as we move forward!

MUST Neighborhood Pantry:

Monday, February 6th!

Our February Pantry is just around the corner – here’s how you can help!

1: Volunteer!

We have volunteer shifts throughout the day. If you are available, use this link to sign-up:

2: Donate!

We desperately need laundry detergent (larger size to last a month) and feminine hygiene products (pads more popular than tampons). Drop them off on the 6th before 4:00 PM!

3: Let us do the shopping!

We use monetary donations to buy produce, protein, laundry detergent, tortillas, feminine hygiene products and more.

To donate, go to and choose About/Giving/Give Online. After you click on “Give Online,” there’s a page with a drop-down menu that says: “Tithes and Offerings 2022.” Pull-down that menu to “MUST Neighborhood Pantry” and donate there. You can also drop off monetary donations in the RUMC front office. Just write “MUST Neighborhood Pantry” on the check or envelope to ensure it gets to us.

Remember that we are operating out of the RUMC Fellowship Hall for the next few months. Drive around to the back of the B Building and you’ll see the double-doors by the handicap spaces. That’s us!

Thank you! Pray for sunshine!
