THIS ENDOWMENT’S CHRISTIAN LEGACY IN ACTION

This fund continues to grow through regular gifts from the generous CUC Sunday School
class members. Each year, the class’ endowment committee meets to make sure that the
funds are used in a way or ways that are meaningful to the class as a whole. This endowment was the first in the Foundation’s portfolio to be created by a Sunday School class and has inspired other Sunday School classes to begin creating their own endowments.

2016 Grants fulfilled: Provided support of RUMC’s Altar Guild and for an accessible
ramp at RUMC’s Chapel building, and furnished a room at Murphy-Harpst Children’s
Center.

2015 Grants fulfilled: Provided a gift to establish the Malone and Charlotte Dodson
Endowment to support Mentoring Ministries and the RUMC Foundation.

2014 Grants fulfilled: Helped to purchase a golf cart for the purpose of transporting
members between A and B buildings on Sunday mornings so that no one has to choose
between worship and Sunday School attendance.

star-on   A Need for books at Murphy-Harpst

The recent visit to Murphy-Harpst Children’s Centers provided new insights, one of which is a real need of teenagers for age-appropriate books. The library is poorly stocked. One young lady happy with her new bedroom (partly furnished by CUC) has only three books which she reads and rereads.

The Mission Outreach Committee proposes an ongoing collection of books teenagers would like for recreational reading. Please ask any teenagers you know for suggestions of titles and book donations. The contact person at Murphy-Harpst approves this message.

A Thank You for CUC Generosity

Following our year-end donations to foster care organizations we have received heartfelt thank you’s.

Most recently we heard from the United Methodist Children’s Home. They noted that our donation of $1100 (which was one of three that we sent out) will help them achieve their goal of serving 500 children by 2020.

They also reinforced the reason why we took up this collection; there are more than 13,000 children in state custody. “This staggering reality, coupled with a severe shortage of foster homes in many communities, represents a crisis for children across Georgia.”
Well Done CUC!
