“In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.”

links-icon-9889-20x20Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi” by
links-icon-9889-20x20Amy-Jill Levine. Life in first-century Palestine was very different from our world today, and many traditional interpretations of Jesus’ stories ignore this disparity. In this Bible study, Amy-Jill Levine analyzes these “problems with parables” taking readers back in time to understand how their original Jewish audience understood them.

With this revitalized understanding, she interprets these moving stories for the contemporary reader, showing how the parables are not just about Jesus, but are also about us—and when read rightly, still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later. (Study guide with daily readings; DVD component for class time)

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

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.

Bringing Hope to Honduras

Our speaker last Sunday, Phil Dodson, talked on bringing help to Honduras, one lunch at a time, through the Lunches for Learning program.

CUC has sent members to Honduras on mission trips and has contributed through the church to Lunches For Learning,

but it was suggested that if individuals are so led, they could make individual donations to the program. ($150 feeds one child lunches for a year). (Lunches for Learning, Inc., P.O. Box 2146, Roswell 30077) (lunchesforlearning.org)

  • Single – sharing a room $280
  • Single – not sharing a room $350

These rates include all meals, coffee breaks, ice cream breaks, etc.

We are not ready to announce our program at this time but feel the class will be well pleased and blessed by being there.

We will start “Passing a Clipboard” this Sunday and asking for a deposit for a portion of the cost in late June. Questions? Ask Roger Davis.

Must Ministries Lunch Program

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.

Anatomy of Peace

Our speaker this Sunday is Allan Kennedy, RUMC Lay Leader. His topic is “Anatomy of Peace”. We always enjoy Allan’s lessons.

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.

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.

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.

Small Things Support Our Various Mission Outreaches!

Thank you, CUC members, for participating in a project that helps Red Bird Mission School in rural Kentucky.

The Labels for Education that we have sent to this school are among the 1,500,000 required for the school to be awarded a new school van by the Campbell Company. This van will provide transportation for students depending on this school for their education and also for trips students make during the year.

Labels for Education are not printed on as many grocery items any more, but they will be accepted at Red Bird School until the end of 2017. Any you have will be sent for other needs there. Betty Hunt is collecting the Labels for Education and Box Tops for Education.

Please continue to save the pull tops from soda cans to support the Ronald McDonald House which Nancy and Johnie Wright are collecting.
