When Mary his mother was engaged to Joseph, before they were married, she became pregnant by the Holy Spirit. Joseph her husband was a righteous man. Because he didn’t want to humiliate her, he decided to call off their engagement quietly. As he was thinking about this, an angel from the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, Joseph son of David, don’t be afraid to take Mary as your wife, because the child she carries was conceived by the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you will call him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”

(Matthew 1:18-21)

CUC Christmas Party

 

 

We’ve had a great sign-up for our CUC Christmas Party on December 4th. One hundred and six classmates have signed-up, and it is still not too late to put your names on the list.

The cocktail hour begins at 6:00 P.M. with a selection of passed hors d ‘oeuvres, followed by dinner at 7:00 in the ballroom.  The menu includes a carving station with prime angus loin and turkey, holiday salad, two vegetables, pasta, and artisanal breads. There will be a cheesecake station and a gourmet coffee and tea station with Italian syrups, etc.

After dinner, there will be a short program followed by dancing and fellowship. We will have a “white elephant” pass-a-long, and you will be provided bags during Sunday School for this event. So, dig out your Uncle Odell’s gift of a tie from last year or Aunt Opal’s hand knitted socks and prepare to have some fun with your friends.

The cost is $39.00 per person, and payment is due by Sunday Nov. 26th.  Make checks payable to CUC. Please call Vince or Donna Grosse if you have any questions. We would greatly appreciate everyone bringing a check this coming Sunday, as we will begin making the final arrangements with the club the following week. Additionally, anyone who didn’t pick up a bag for your “white elephant present” last Sunday should do so this Sunday. Dress for the party is “Christmas Casual or Festive Semi-Formal.”

Directions to the Metropolitan Club: Go north on GA-400 and exit onto Windward Parkway. Go east (right) on Windward approximately .4 mile to Edison Drive.  Turn right and then right again into the parking lot.  The club is located to the left of the foyer on the first floor of this building.

A White Christmas for Murphy Harpst

 

 

 

Pam Kramer, the Director of Community Engagement, has sent her thanks to the CUC class of RUMC for the towels and other items  delivered on  November 17.

“The towels are AWESOME!!!  We already accounted for everything, labeled them and provided them to the cottages.  Your class is amazing!  There were 112 big, fluffy towels, washcloths, candy and much appreciated MP3 players.”

CUC’ers, we have a few Sundays to go before this Christmas White Towel Shower ends.  Keep those wash cloths and towels coming.  Another delivery will be made to M-H after December 10.  Thank you, every one, for your generous donations!

Pam said 19 children were discharged last month and 19 others were received.  That’s quite a number to provide clothes and immediate needs for as these new residents come to Murphy Harpst without a thing.

In addition, Murphy Harpst maintains a Point Store where, as a special reward for good behavior, children can choose to get rewards like candy, Gatorade, MP3s, etc.  For this Point Store, the staff would appreciate any such donations you are moved to provide.

Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up.  “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they among so many?” 

Jesus Said, “Have the people sit down.”  There was plenty of grass in that place, and the men sat down, about five thousand of them.  Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted.  He did the same with the fish.

Many people  are  gathering  items  for Operation Christmas ChildLynn  Roberts still has the boxes waiting to  be  filled.  Our CUC goal is 100! The filled  boxes  are  due back  by November 13th. Bring  them  to  Sunday  School  or  drop  them  off in the  church  office.

Go on-line to Operation Christmas Child – How to Pack a Shoebox for  full  information. Have fun filling your box(es)!  (No candy, liquids or toothpaste!) You will make some  child very happy! By the way, the cost to Samaritan’s Purse for shipping each box this year is $9. The  best  way  to  pay  is  on  line.

CUC Christmas Progressive Dinner

At least 105 CUC members will be attending our annual Christmas party this Sunday night. The Skillings have been kind enough to invite us all to their beautiful home for appetizers. Here are directions to the Skillings’:

From RUMC – go west on Mimosa. Turns into Pine Grove and then Shallowford Road. Drive approximately 4.3 miles. After you pass the Johnson Ferry intersection (Publix and Kroger) you will see the Harmony Grove Baptist Church and Cemetery on your right. Our street, Chimney Lane NE, is the next right turn between two huge oak trees. Our house is the last house on the left with a waterfall in front.
Please carpool if possible. If you park in the cul-de-sac, please head in so we can accommodate more cars.
