“Stop judging others, and you will not be judged. Stop criticizing others, or it will all come back on you. If you forgive others, you will be forgiven. If you give, you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, ad running over. What ever measure you use in giving – large or small – it will be used to measure what is given back to you.”

Luke 6:37-38

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

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.

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”.

MUST SL-Graphic

Fellow CUCers, summer is here and that means Must Summer Lunches.

As of this date, we have $1350.00 in our treasury plus $500.00 from the Boswell Foundation that should enable us to make approximately 1600 lunches. Last year we made 2400 lunches and to do that again this year, we will need the funds necessary to do so! We will be passing the hat this Sunday and that will determine the number of lunches we can provide.

We will also be passing the clipboard for volunteers to make the lunches. Y’all were so great last year and we had many volunteers. It takes about 15 volunteers to put these lunches together. We know we can do it again this year! Our first date is June 12, Tuesday, 9:00 am, in the Fellowship Hall. Thank you for all you do throughout the year.
