The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom (or what) shall I be afraid?

Psalms 27:1

Bible Verse of the Week

This week’s Bible verse is a favorite of Dal Zierk. He writes: When I was in grade 8 and being confirmed, my aunt and sponsor could not attend my confirmation because she lived too far away. But, she sent me a letter and stated how meaningful her Bible verse (Psalms 27:1) was to her and she knew that my Bible verse would be just as meaningful to me. Of the thousands of verses in the Bible, guess which verse the pastor chose randomly for me…Psalms 27:1. To me that was a miracle and the verse has been very impactful throughout my life. In fact, I say it to myself at least once every single day.

Filling Crate for Venezuela

Venezuela’s economic collapse has resulted in medicine being unavailable or in extremely short supply along with severe food shortages tmstokes@rumc.com_hat leave most people living on one meal a day. RUMC, through Venezuela Now! will send a crate of medicine and food to God’s people in Venezuela! In total,

Venezuela Now has successfully shipped over 20 crates of food and medical supplies to the Wesley Medical Center in Cabudare, Venezuela. The medicines from the crate will be given free of charge to patients of the Medical Center and the food will be distributed to the more than 40 churches in the area operating community soup kitchens and used by the Seminary to provide meals to students while on campus for classes.

To send a full crate will require donations of over the counter medicines and food from the congregation. The reason for the specific medications is that these simple, basic items are not available to the average citizen and especially the poor. The specific food items are exactly the ingredients that go into a hearty soup that is prepared.

The specific items are:

  • · Acetaminophen (Tylenol)
  • · Ibuprofen (Advil)
  • · Infant Tylenol and Advil
  • · Children’s and Adult’s multi-vitamins
  • · Powdered infant formula
  • · Canned chicken
  • · Dried rice
  • · Dried beans

MariAnna Brown is putting a plastic container in our CUC class for the next 2 Sundays for these items. The crate being filled by RUMC is 48″x40″x60″and will be in the south side of the sanctuary this Sunday.


Wednesday Night Out (WNO)

CUC CLASS OFFICERS FOR 2018-19

ClassOfficers

It’s time to be 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 is working on this in the next few weeks. Information on current class committees is available on the class web site (CUCX.WORDPRESS.COM). 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

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”.

“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”

Matthew 5:14-16.

After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it.
