Honduras Graduation Event

31668_125522300801922_6803958_n

During the week of November 11 a team of 6 members of RUMC will visit the Manuel Bonilla School that this church sponsors for the graduation celebration.

UPDATE –

During the week of November 11 a team of 6 members of RUMC will visit the Manuel Bonilla School that RUMC sponsors and participate in a grand graduation celebration of 18 9th grade students, 12 6th grade students and 11 kindergartners.  We will honor these students with our presence and gifts.

You all will remember that nearly 4  years ago RUMC began a partnerships with Lunches for Learning, Inc to sponsor the lunch program at this school with the CUC and Berean Classes being the dominant supporters of this program.  At the time 6th grade was the highest level of education that any of these students could achieve.  This coming week as a result of our efforts 18 of the 6th grade graduates in 2015 will graduate from 9th grade and will continue on to 10th grade.

Since then we have had about 10 mission trips, helping the community and the school.  This past year we completed a wonderful new middle school building that is to be used for both middle and high school in separate daily sessions.  We have also built a kitchen for this community and we are planning to begin work on a medical clinic and a trade school that will be used for multiple impoverished communities near this campus.

In 2017 and 2018 we engaged the youth department and had 3 youth lead mission trips with youth and parents of youth.  One of our own family, Allison Phelps, (daughter of John and Claudia Phelps), last year spent an entire month teaching these students English and she plans to return again next summer.

As a result of your support and participation the impact on this community is immeasurable and the impact on so many new participants from RUMC in this mission has been powerful. Several families have joined together to sponsor another school and new impassioned mission leaders have emerged.

In addition, CUC and  Bereans classes have been faithful in supporting the “Hearts for Honduras” fundraiser which is where administrative support for the organization is secured.  The results is that over these last few years God has truly blessed the work of Lunches  For Learning (L4L) providing funding that has now made it financially secure and has allowed for a growth in the number of schools and students being served.  God has brought to the organization a powerful Board of Directors, an impassioned Executive Director who carries a name we all know well, Phil Dodson (Son  of  Malone  &  Charlotte Dodson) as well as a staff that is now prepared to increase the reach of schools and students in 2019 by approximately 10-15%.

Please know that your support is changing lives both in Honduras and with those who now serve.

CUC Newsletter – June 17, 2018

cuc-logo-clean

Before this faith came, we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed. So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith. Now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law. You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. For there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male or female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 2; 23-29

CUC CLASS OFFICERS FOR 2018-19

ClassOfficers

It’s time to beginning thinking about class officers for 2018-19 with responsibilities beginning in August. Sara Beecham, current Vice President, will move into the President position but many other jobs will likely be available.

Current committees have all done a great job and keeping some experienced persons on their current assignments is advisable. However, it is equally important to get new people involved.

A nominating committee will begin working on this in the next few weeks. Information on current class committees is available on the class web site (CUC Class Officers) and will also be available as a handout on Sunday. If you’re interested in serving on any committee or would like to change your current assignment, please let me know asap. My goal is to have everything tied down by mid-July.

Many thanks, Tom Knight

Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: “Men of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO AN UNKNOW GOD. Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you. The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands”.

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.

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.


Little Things Mean a Lot!

Please remember to keep collecting and bring to Sunday School your flip tops from cans for Ronald McDonald Houses and your box tops and labels for Redbird Missions.

  • 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.
