Thank You From Homestretch

The following letter was received by the church from Talaya Parker, Executive Director of HomeStretch regarding the  gift the CUC Foundation sent  to Homestretch  recently:

On behalf of HomeStretch and the families we serve, we would like to thank you for your generous donation. We received your gift in the amount of $2,000.00.
Your generosity is so important to us and the homeless working families of North Fulton County.  With this gift, you are helping us provide supportive housing for families in crisis, so parents and their children can stay together.  But that’s not all.  During their time with us, the families receive life skills education and mentoring to cultivate stability and promote future self-reliance.  Through commitments such as yours, the families can focus on regaining their dignity and reaching financial independence without worrying about where they and their children will sleep each night. Providing transitional housing and supportive services is an expensive but worthwhile investment in the transformation of the lives of homeless families.   HomeStretch relies on donations like yours to help fund this program. Thank you for helping us through your gift.

Christian, What do You Believe?

We will welcome Scott Dickson back this Sunday after his “thought provoking” lesson last week. The title of the lesson this week is “Christian, What do You Believe?”
(Listen to the Lesson) (Slides for the Lesson)

Scott’s lessons encourage us to think and be prepared to defend what we believe – as difficult as it might be at times. After last week, the one truth we can know for sure is: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believed in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

Amazon Smile is a second way for customers to support their favorite charitable organization every time they shop with Amazon. If you choose Murphy-Harpst Children’s Center, Amazon will donate a portion of the price of eligible purchases to that Methodist facility.

CUC Newsletter – May 10, 2019

“It’s only the fruit from the tree at the center of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God says we must not eat it or even touch it, or we will die”. “You won’t die!” the serpent hissed. “God knows that your eyes will be opened when you eat it. You will become just like God, knowing everything, both good and evil.”

The woman was convinced. The fruit looked so fresh and delicious, and it would make her so wise! So she ate some of the fruit. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her. Then he ate it, too. At that moment, their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they strung fig leaves together around their hips to cover themselves.

Genesis 3:4-7

From a Facebook post from Linda Temples on May 1, 2019:

“In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.”

links-icon-9889-20x20Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi” by
links-icon-9889-20x20Amy-Jill Levine. Life in first-century Palestine was very different from our world today, and many traditional interpretations of Jesus’ stories ignore this disparity. In this Bible study, Amy-Jill Levine analyzes these “problems with parables” taking readers back in time to understand how their original Jewish audience understood them.

With this revitalized understanding, she interprets these moving stories for the contemporary reader, showing how the parables are not just about Jesus, but are also about us—and when read rightly, still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later. (Study guide with daily readings; DVD component for class time)

Red Bird Mission School

Betty and Larry Hunt recently made a trip to Red Bird mission school in Kentucky to see for themselves what this mission that CUC collects the box tops and labels for is all about. This is what they found:

Children born in southeastern Kentucky, a poor Appalachian region, are fortunate if they have the opportunity for an education that gives them hope for a bright future. Red Bird Mission School, K-12, provides an experience of high quality for its students. 97% of high school graduates go on to college or further training.

This Methodist private Christian school relies on churches throughout the USA and individuals to meet its budget. CUC members are asked to cut out Box Tops for

support-murphy-harpst-and-red-bird-mission-school-website

Education printed on various supermarket items and bring them to class. What is then mailed to Red Bird Mission is our small way of helping those needy young people.

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.

Must Ministries Lunch Program

We will be collecting bags of apples in CUC for the MUST Summer Lunch program. Every Sunday through the months of June and July please bring bags of apples as you are able and they will be placed with the lunch crews for distribution with the bag lunches.

Last year we made 2400 lunches and plan to do that again this year. Our first date is June 12, Tuesday, 9:00 am, in the Fellowship Hall. We have enough volunteers signed up for that date but may need more some later on.

The CUC MUST Lunch Committee consists of Sandy and Bill Griffin, Martha Jane Mason, Jeff and Lesleigh Coelho, Jim Boswell, Claudia Phelps


From the Fellowship Committee:

2018 CUC RETREAT – OCTOBER 31 – NOVEMBER 2

By unanimous vote at our last retreat, we are returning to Chick-fil-A’s Winshape facility at Berry College for 2018. The facility, the staff, and the amenities are outstanding.

From a cost standpoint we are estimating the following rates: (subject to slight change)

  • Married couple – $465
  • Single – sharing a room $280
  • Single – not sharing a room $350
  • These rates include all meals, coffee breaks, ice cream breaks, etc.

We are not ready to announce our program at this time but feel the class will be well pleased and blessed by being there.

Please be prayerfully considering your participation in this annual event. More information will be coming, but we want to get an initial indication concerning your attendance and we want you to get it on your calendar to avoid conflicts.

We had a great response to the retreat sign up last week – 58 are signed up to attend. We will continue to “Pass the clipboard” this week. Deposits will be due in late June. The program is shaping up very well and will be announced soon! Questions? Ask Roger Davis.

DON’T MISS THIS SPECIAL EVENT!!
