Summer Grocery Program

Update on My Neighbors Pantry:

After partnering with MUST Ministries for 15+ years – serving as the North Fulton hub of the MUST Summer Lunch Program and later the Summer Grocery Program, My Neighbor’s Pantry will become an official MUST Neighborhood Pantry as of August 1st. It will continue to operate out of our current location on RUMC’s campus.

My Neighbor’s Pantry will now be called the MUST Neighborhood Pantry on Mimosa. MUST has 32 of these pantries all over the Atlanta area and we will become the first and only official MUST Neighborhood Pantry in North Fulton. The pantry will run monthly – the first Monday of each month on most months. As a MUST Neighborhood Pantry, MUST will provide us with all kinds of non-perishable food, as well as proteins, produce and dairy.

We will still ask for both in-kind and monetary donations to supplement what MUST provides. The needs may change month to month. Donations will be accepted the day of the monthly pantries, anytime between 11:00-4:00 PM. We will still need volunteers. Here’s the Sign-up Genius for the first MUST Neighborhood Pantry on Monday, August 1st.Here’s the link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/409084FABAD29A31-myneighbors1

We will meet in the back of the room near the piano. If you are unable to attend and would like information please call Gale or Roger Davis.

Tickets

Babs and Shaw Skillings are not going to be able to attend the last play at the Atlanta Lyric Theater. It’s Sunday, June 19 at 2pm at the Jennie T Anderson Theater on Marietta Parkway. That’s Father’s Day and would be a great present for that special guy. We have 4 tickets with good seats to offer free to a good home. The play is Matilda. It was on Broadway from 2013 to 2017 for 1555 performances. Here’s the Lyric summary of the play:

“Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents and is the bane of headmistress, Miss Trunchbull—Matilda’s courage and cleverness just might save the day. Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs and an unforgettable gang of “revolting” children, Matilda is a joyous girl power romp.”

We have good seats and the singing and dancing has always been fabulous. We have really enjoyed the Lyric musicals for many years. First to email me at sskills@bellsouth.net claims them. Enjoy! Shaw

Happy Mother’s Day!

Sunday, May 8, 2022

For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe. 1 Thessalonians 2:13, New American Standard Bible – 1995


How the English Bible Came to Be

Dean Tucker has our lesson again this week, completing his series on “How the English Bible Came to Be”. Dean is a member of the BYKOTA Sunday School class and was a professor at Oglethorpe. He has been covering the subjects: Christian beliefs about the creation of the Bible, the case for the Bible as the inspired Word of God,

In what language(s) was the Bible originally written? When was the Bible written? Who wrote the Bible?, Why was the Bible written? How was the Bible written and preserved throughout the early stages? How was it determined what to include or exclude in the Bible?, How were the books of the Bible named and ordered?, The bloody, violent and murderous path to our present day English Bible, and How and why are there so many translations and versions of the Bible? His lessons are built upon the following words of Scripture: Mark 13:31, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21,1 Thessalonians 2:13

CUC Newsletter – April 29, 2022

We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

2 Peter 1:19-21 NIV

CUC Support of Murphy Harpst

The Spring 2022 Newsletter of Murphy-Harpst Children’s Center includes an article about a three-story external staircase recently completed for James Hall on that campus. The state fire marshal in 2019 recommended that the third floor apartments of that building built in 1927 remain vacant and unused until its emergency staircase was replaced.

Now the space will provide lodging for program interns during the year and serve as indoor space for staff in the event of inclement weather. The first two floors contain clinical care and nursing programs. Among the groups donating funds for this project were the Roswell UMC Foundation and the Roswell UMC Christians Under Construction Sunday School Class. Murphy-Harpst states that “we are incredibly grateful for the support that will allow use of the third story again.”

Charis Gallery Exhibit

Be sure to take time to look at the new exhibit in the Charis Gallery (in the hall outside the Welcome Center in Building A), The Artists of RUMC. We have several artists of CUC represented : Patricia Mashburn, Larry Hunt and Jan Buckley. Also Gale and Roger Davis’ daughter Perri has several pieces on exhibit.

Sing with the Sanctuary Choir

Sing with the Sanctuary Choir for the annual Patriotic Celebration Concert! No auditions and no long-term commitments are necessary.

Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 7 – 8:30 p.m. in the choir room, Sanctuary building. An Open House will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 4 in the Noah’s Ark classroom, room 258, Sanctuary building. For more information, contact Michael Cromwell.
