Christmas for Murphy Harpst Children

Murphy-Harpst

The CUC Mission Outreach Committee thanks all class members who responded to the opportunity to make Christmas merry for residents at Murphy-Harpst Children’s Center next month.

This is the last of the four Sundays in November a Christmas basket will circulate during class to accept cash and checks. Approximately 130 young people will benefit from our generosity. CUC is following a suggestion from Murphy Harpst that “CUC could provide a smaller denomination of cash or gift card for every child ($10-$20).”

In early December the church will send a check for the total amount collected saying that the donation is from the CUC Class for young people celebrating Christmas at Murphy-Harpst. Checks should be made out to RUMC with CUC Murphy-Harpst Christmas on the notation line. Teenagers receiving gift cards will be able to shop for themselves! Thank you, class, for your generosity. Questions? Contact Betty or Larry Hunt.



Operation Christmas Child

shoebox-closed3

Thanks from Lynn Roberts and the many children who will receive Christmas boxes from Samaritan’s Purse because of the CUC members who prepared 81 shoeboxes. And thanks to the others who contributed to boxes on line which brought the CUC box total to over our goal of 100.

CUC Newsletter – June 17, 2018

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”.

Acts 17:22-24.
