The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Psalms 23: 1-4 KJV

(My grandfather offered to give me a silver dollar if I memorized the 23rd Psalm. And so I did. Sara Beecham.)

NEW COVENANT GROUPS FORMING

In recent months we have added more new members to the class who might be interested in forming their own groups. We have resources for study books and guidelines for setting up these groups.

Homestretch Year End Report

As CUC has always been a big supporter of Homestretch since its very beginning it is with pleasure that we hear the statistics June to June of this year:

Of 15 families, 14 graduated. All are full-time employed and in permanent housing. Two of their kids are off to college, one an honor graduate with a full scholarship to Stanford University.


Why Could Red Bird Christian School Use 2nd Language Textbooks?

red-bird-logo

Recently Norma and David Hills took clothing, books etc. to Red Bird Missions including 2nd language textbooks.

UM Churches and volunteers with their money, labor, and materials renovated Red Bird’s two old dorms so a Residential Program could be offered. The 2 dorms house 24 students and each dorm has its own dorm parents.

Internationals attending the Residential Programs live in these dorms and concentrate on the skills of learning a new language: grammar, reading writing, vocabulary, listening and speaking. Their goals are to attend a college or university. That’s how the 2nd language textbooks are used.

To facilitate their spiritual growth, they participate in daily devotions, weekly chapel services, Sat. leadership training and 2 Bible Study courses during their high school career.


Calling All Seniors (age 60+)

Do you like to sing? For the Prime Time Singers, RUMC’s Senior Adult Choir under the direction of Tom Alterman, no experience or audition is necessary.

PTS rehearses on Wednesday mornings in the choir room beginning September 5 through May from 10:45 -12 noon for a fun-filled time of rehearsal and fellowship. The choir sings for the First Sunday Communion Services, Senior Adult Activities, and at venues in the community.

CUC CLASS OFFICERS FOR 2018-19

ClassOfficers

It’s time to be thinking about class officers for 2018-19 with responsibilities beginning in August. Sara Beecham, current Vice President, will move into the president position but many other jobs will likely be available.

Current committees have all done a great job and keeping some experienced persons on their current assignments is advisable. However, it is equally important to get new people involved. A nominating committee is working on this in the next few weeks. Information on current class committees is available on the class web site (CUCX.WORDPRESS.COM). If you’re interested in serving on any committee or would like to change your current assignment, please let me know asap. My goal is to have everything tied down by mid-July.

Many thanks, Tom Knight
