“Stop judging others, and you will not be judged. Stop criticizing others, or it will all come back on you. If you forgive others, you will be forgiven. If you give, you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, ad running over. What ever measure you use in giving – large or small – it will be used to measure what is given back to you.”

Luke 6:37-38

“Therefore, prepare your minds for action; discipline yourselves; set all your hope on the grace that Jesus Christ will bring you when He is revealed. Like obedient children, do not be conformed to the desires that you formerly had in ignorance. Instead, as He who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct. For it is written, you shall be holy, for I am holy.”

Foster Care Support Foundation Prom-A-Palooza 2017- volunteers needed

This is a wonderful event on Sunday, February 19, where girls in foster care can come to choose everything they need to go to their proms. Volunteers help girls choose from a selection of beautiful prom dresses and gowns to take home for their perfect evening. Personal shoppers will help them through the process of selecting dresses and also help with a selection of accessories such as shoes, shawls, purses etc. to find their perfect choices.

Rachel Ewald can use between 4 or 5 volunteers from CUC if anyone is interested in volunteering for the day, 9 am to 5 pm, please email rachel@fostercare.org and she will send the registration form for the volunteers for that date.

Unfortunately, they can’t take split shifts due to the nature of the event but they will have plenty of food for volunteers to eat. You can go to the Foster Care Support Foundation website to read all about the event. Volunteering there is a great experience!


Homestretch Road Race

Attention, all loyal HomeStretch Road Race Volunteers. It’s coming!!! The 16th Annual Run the River 5K/10K Road Race 2017 is scheduled for Saturday, April 22. Once again, it will begin and end the race at St. Andrew Catholic Church on Riverside Road. CUC has been a big part of Homestretch’s success in past races and we want to make sure you save the date.


Lost and Found

Have you left behind or lost anything at a CUC event or on Sunday morning? Thanks to Martha Thompson we now have a CUC “Lost and Found” collection place in our CUC closet.


Save those Pull Tops and Labels!

Remember to save the pull tops from soda cans to support the Ronald McDonald House in Atlanta and bring them into Nancy Wright. We’re aiming for 10 pounds worth!
And for Murphy-Harpst watch for those boxtops and labels!
