CUC Sunday School Class

Who Are These People?

Sally Dowland will be  with  us  this Sunday as  our  speaker. She is doing the lesson “Who Are These People?”.  She thinks she may have offered it in CUC before, but she’s learned it never hurts to repeat! Plus, she has added a little twist to the original. Sally always gives us new food  for  thought. A good verse to go with the lesson is John 4:9 – The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.)


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

Time: 9:30 AM Eastern time

How can you help?…

#1: Volunteer! We pack produce bags and non-perishable groceries onsite on Pantry days. There are two packing shifts – one starts at 11:00 AM and the other starts at 12:30 PM. Sign-up here:

#2: Donate! We need lots of laundry detergent (larger size to last a month) and feminine hygiene products (pads more popular than tampons) each month. You can drop donations off at the RUMC Fellowship Hall any time before 4:00 PM on the day of the Pantry.

#3: Let us do the shopping! We use $$ donations to buy laundry detergent, tortillas, protein, fresh produce, feminine hygiene products and more each month.

To donate online, go to and choose About/Giving/Give Online. After you click on “Give Online,” there’s a drop-down menu that says: “Tithes and Offerings.” 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: We are now operating out of the RUMC Fellowship Hall. Drive around to the back of the B Building and you’ll see us.
