If you feel led to do more, you can support those in need financially by indicating #901670 or “Disaster Relief” on the memo line of your check written to RUMC or by choosing “Disaster Relief” if making a donation online through rumc.com/give. 100% of the money you give to UMCOR in this offering is given to help those in flooded areas.

Parking this Sunday

Chapel Roswell’s two-year anniversary celebration will take place this Sunday, Sept. 10, on the front lawn of the chapel. There will be three food trucks on campus and they will take the parking spaces on the left side of the B-building, if you are facing the chapel.

If there is rain (please pray there is not), the food trucks will park in the handicap spaces behind the fellowship hall. They hope to make temporary handicap spaces available on right side of the B-building, if you are facing the chapel, for this day. Please be aware this possible parking problem if you normally depend on the handicap spaces for parking.

CUC’s Children in Worldwide Missions

Lynn  & Dave Robert’s daughter Beth Roberts Ondrus left Thursday night for Thailand and Phnon Penh, Cambodia to attend an international Conference on Worldwide Human Trafficking Problems. Beth has built and operates a store within her church in Naperville, Illinois where they sell items made by people rescued from Human Trafficking. She is also on the Board of Shrishti International who along with other organizations operate Refugee Centers where they are taught skills, or use skills they have to make items to sell to earn money and be able to support themselves and families as well as provide housing for them.   

Linda & Jim Boswell’s granddaughter, Courtney Cox, Jackson MS. will be returning to the US on Friday after spending a year on the World Race program sponsored by Adventures in Mission.  She has been in eleven different countries for about one month at a time working with teams in teaching English, orphanages, construction, evangelism, and rights of women and children.  Next January, she will enter Dallas Theological Seminary to earn a master’s degree in Christian counseling.

20/20 Hearing Mission

Rusty Gordon brought the 20/20 Hearing Mission to our attention when he and Ann led our CUC Retreat. Jack McConnell, 14, a neighbor of Lynn and Dave Roberts whom they have known all of his life, was born deaf. He has started the 20/20 Hearing Mission to provide hearing to those who cannot hear, particularly children. His dream is to give the gift of hearing to others as he was blessed.
The McConnells have traveled to several countries as they and the team fit people with donated hearing aids. The family is going to Haiti shortly with their 20/20 Hearing Mission to provide hearing to those who cannot hear, particularly children. They are collecting used hearing aids and you may bring them to CUC to Lynn Roberts and you will get a receipt for a tax deduction.

Refugee Furniture Round-Up This Week

In 2015, Metro Atlanta will receive 2,500 refugees, from Congo, Iraq, Iran, and other war-ravaged lands. They come invited by our U.S. State Department to make Atlanta their home. Thru Saturday, Jan 9, Mark Hills (son of Norma & Dave Hills) is running a Furniture Round-Up, collecting furniture for incoming refugee families. He will amass material donations in his garage for World Relief to pick up next week.To outfit their apartments, families need modest-sized couches/loveseats, dining tables and chairs, beds (full and singles), dressers, lamps, all manner of basic kitchenware: pots, pans, dinnerware…basically, everything to equip their home! etc.!! But all those items still in good shape that you do not use or need, can be put to really good use by these World Relief refugees coming to our area this year.
If you have sturdy furniture and practical household items to contribute, please send Mark an email with a description, and your address. He’ll call you back within 24 hours. Please call him before delivering items to his driveway (545 Rocky Creek Dr, Roswell).
* Due to space limitations, he can’t accept items in less than good condition.
* Retrieving items from your garage allows him to be a minimal disruption.
* World Relief does not receive entertainment centers, large beds, massive TVs or sleeper sofas.
Let us gather furniture and household goods to prepare rooms for the imminent arrival of those fleeing for their lives. Whatever we do in His name for “the least of these” we do as unto Him.
