For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Looking Deeper at the Parables

Scott dickson

Scott Dickson returns to CUC this Sunday for the second part of his most interesting lesson “Looking Deeper at the Parables”. He is looking at the parables in a different way, making us think about where and when Jesus taught them and who His listeners were.

Two books about the parables that Scott Dickson recommended were Short Stories by

links-icon-9889-20x20Jesus by Amy-Jill Levine and The Parables of Jesus by Jim Fleming.

Jan Ligon reminds us that the antiques that our kids don’t want would be of great value for the garage sale. Gale Davis reminds us that those good clothes that we hardly ever wear will be great for our boutique. We are not taking men’s clothes or shoes this year. We want women’s clothes on HANGERS please.

Plan to volunteer at almost any time during this coming week for the Garage Sale Extravaganza August 2- 4th. (You do not have to sign up ahead if you realize you have time to help out.) CUC always has a large group of volunteers working that whole week.

Consider donating homemade baked goods and/or purchasing baked goods at the Job Networking fundraising Bake Sale. Drop off baked goods next Thursday, 8/2, 12:00-2:00 at the south side of Chapel Building just before the portico. Please identify baked item and include your name.

Little Things Mean a Lot!

Apples to CUC for MUST lunches!

Box Tops should be clipped when you see them on boxes, cans, bags you have brought home from stores. You can find a current list of products that feature Box Tops for Education by searching for Box Tops for Education on your computers.

Quite a variety of brands helps schools this way. Many schools collect them. All these items contributed from our class are mailed to Red Bird Missionary Conference in Kentucky to help the Christian school there.

Over the years these Box Tops sent from churches and individuals across the USA have made a positive difference in the school’s ability to provide “extras” such as hall lockers, prizes for perfect attendance, fuel for vans, field trips. These benefits are not part of the school’s budget.

Red Bird Missionary Conference has an excellent computer site. Please refer to it for information about this Methodist center in rural Appalachia.

Flip tops from cans – keep collecting them and bring to Sunday School. These go to support Ronald McDonald Houses

  • Edna Smith – continuing her recovery from hernia surgery.
  • Mary Serafina at MD Anderson in Houston with her daughter Pam Pruit for a month, for Pam’s cancer treatments. Pray for Pam’s successful cancer treatment

  • Pastor Andrew Brunson, wrongly imprisoned in Turkey, his wife and family, and for Terry and Wanda Taylor’s son Kent who is Andrew’s partner in ministry in Turkey.
  • UPDATE ON PASTOR ANDREW BRUNSON – June 25, 2018 President Trump made his boldest statement last weekend in defense of imprisoned Pastor Brunson assuring him that he is not forgotten, and we are working on his release. Also, the U.S. Senate is poised to approve legislation that would inflict a significant penalty on Turkey by denying their purchase of our F-35 jets should they not release Pastor Brunson. In addition, the European Parliamentarians are demanding Turkey release the innocent pastor. Meanwhile, Pastor Brunson is in prison awaiting the continuation of his trial this coming week on July 18.

Love never fails. But where there prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.

Red Bird Mission School

Betty and Larry Hunt recently made a trip to Red Bird mission school in Kentucky to see for themselves what this mission that CUC collects the box tops and labels for is all about. This is what they found:

Children born in southeastern Kentucky, a poor Appalachian region, are fortunate if they have the opportunity for an education that gives them hope for a bright future. Red Bird Mission School, K-12, provides an experience of high quality for its students. 97% of high school graduates go on to college or further training.

This Methodist private Christian school relies on churches throughout the USA and individuals to meet its budget. CUC members are asked to cut out Box Tops for

Education printed on various supermarket items and bring them to class. What is then mailed to Red Bird Mission is our small way of helping those needy young people.

Before this faith came, we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed. So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith. Now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law. You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. For there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male or female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

CUC CLASS OFFICERS FOR 2018-19

ClassOfficers

It’s time to beginning 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 will begin working on this in the next few weeks. Information on current class committees is available on the class web site (CUC Class Officers) and will also be available as a handout on Sunday. 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

Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: “Men of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO AN UNKNOW GOD. Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you. The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands”.

MUST SL-Graphic

Fellow CUCers, summer is here and that means Must Summer Lunches.

As of this date, we have $1350.00 in our treasury plus $500.00 from the Boswell Foundation that should enable us to make approximately 1600 lunches. Last year we made 2400 lunches and to do that again this year, we will need the funds necessary to do so! We will be passing the hat this Sunday and that will determine the number of lunches we can provide.

We will also be passing the clipboard for volunteers to make the lunches. Y’all were so great last year and we had many volunteers. It takes about 15 volunteers to put these lunches together. We know we can do it again this year! Our first date is June 12, Tuesday, 9:00 am, in the Fellowship Hall. Thank you for all you do throughout the year.

Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: “Rulers and elders of the people! If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a cripple and are asked how he was healed, then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. He is the stone you builders rejected, which has become the capstone. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we may be saved.

Book: the Anatomy of Peace
What if conflicts at home, conflicts at work, and conflicts
in the world stem from the same root cause? What if we 
systematically misunderstand that cause? And what if, as a result, 
we systematically perpetuate the very problems we think 
we are trying to solve? Every day.

Peter replied: “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your Sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off–for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

New Testaments for Honduras

For those that were not in class this past Sunday, Claudia Phelps has paperback New Testaments in Spanish to send down with the Honduras mission team.

Each Bible is $2.00. We had generous support this past Sunday and Claudia is ordering more. There has been a major request and appreciation for this show of love for the Word of God.

Bless you for your participation! In CUC Class there will be a bowl for dollars, and a stack of Bibles for any inscriptions you might wish to do. We heard that these Bibles and these inscriptions have had a big impact. Call Claudia Phelps with any questions 404-406-4664.


Why We Collect Box Tops

Red Bird Christian High School, a boarding high school serving mountain people from isolated communities spread over a wide distance, was founded in 1921 by the Evangelical Church. It soon united with the Brethren Church to form the Evangelical United Brethren then in 1968 united with the Methodists to become today’s United Methodist Church. Red Bird Center is a missionary conference of the UMC, one of three in the United States.

support-murphy-harpst-and-red-bird-mission-school-website

RUMC and CUC can feel a connection to this school that serves mountain people from isolated communities in southwestern Kentucky. Collecting Box Tops on hundreds of products is an easy way to help this rural school obtain classroom supplies. Some of the well-known brands are Reynolds, General Mills, Cascadian Farms, Ziploc, Annie’s, Green Giant, Progresso, Betty Crocker, Scott, Boise, Nature Valley, Hefty, Kleenex. Please cut out any Box Tops found on products you buy and bring them to CUC. They will be forwarded to the school in Beverly, KY.


Little Things Mean a Lot!

Please remember to keep collecting and bring to Sunday School your flip tops from cans for Ronald McDonald Houses and your box tops and labels for Redbird Missions.

 


Prayer Requests

  • Roger Davis – having back surgery for relief of pain this coming Wednesday, April 25
  • Pastor Andrew Bronson, wrongly imprisoned and on trial this week in Turkey, his wife and family, and for Terry and Wanda Taylor’s son Kent who is Andrew’s partner in ministry in Turkey.
    An Update from Terry Taylor:
    The first day of Pastor Brunson’s trial on Monday was filled with secret witnesses for the prosecution. Their testimony was broadcast into the courtroom via video with their voices and appearances altered.

    In the USA such devious tactics would have been thrown out of court. But not in Turkey!

    Then at the conclusion of a grueling, nearly 13-hour-long day trial, the judge refused to release Pastor Andrew Bronson , But worse, he ordered Pastor Bronson be thrown back into the first prison he had been in – a notoriously overcrowded and grim prison. Then the Turkish court delayed the trial until May 7th.

    Pastor Andrew Bronson is innocent. He’s on trial for “Christianization” – for his faith.

    Please continue to pray for him and his family.

Ongoing Prayer Requests

  • Mary Serafina asks that we continue to pray for her daughter Pam Pruit as she battles cancer. Pam feels your prayers and feels God’s hand on her life.
  • Bob Davis for improved health

Please pray for needs expressed and unexpressed for friends and relatives of CUC class members who are facing illnesses, loss of loved ones, and important decisions to be made.

All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.”
