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

Get Ready for the Fun of Small Group Dinners!

Small Group Dinners

Your Fellowship Committee is preparing for our springtime round of small group dinners. This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know your CUC classmates at a more intimate gathering. We encourage all, but especially our newest members, to take advantage of dining at a classmate’s home with 6 or 8 other CUCers.

The host provides the main course and wine if desired. Each guest will bring a portion of the meal. Easy peasy!

The committee will start matching up guests and hosts at the end of March. Dinners will be held throughout the spring (April, May, June) as each group selects a date convenient to all.Questions? Comments? Favorite recipes? Send all to Kris or Mary. (Kris Taylor or Mary Serafina).

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.

Must Ministries Lunch Program

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.

Sandy and Bill Griffin, Martha Jane Mason, Jeff and Lesleigh Coelho, Jim Boswell

Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: “Rulers and elders of the people! If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a cripple and are asked how he was healed, then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. He is the stone you builders rejected, which has become the capstone. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we may be saved.

Acts 4:8-12

Anatomy of Peace

Our speaker this Sunday is Allan Kennedy, RUMC Lay Leader. His topic is “Anatomy of Peace”. We always enjoy Allan’s lessons.

Book: the Anatomy of Peace
What if conflicts at home, conflicts at work, and conflicts
in the world stem from the same root cause? What if we 
systematically misunderstand that cause? And what if, as a result, 
we systematically perpetuate the very problems we think 
we are trying to solve? Every day.

CUC Newsletter – December 29, 2017

CUC Logo Clean

In those days Caesar Augustus declared that everyone throughout the empire should be enrolled in the tax lists. This first enrollment occurred when Quirinius governed Syria. Everyone went to their own cities to be enrolled. Since Joseph belonged to David’s house and family line, he went up from the city of Nazareth in Galilee to David’s city, called Bethlehem, in Judea. He went to be enrolled together with Mary, who was promised to him in marriage and who was pregnant.

Luke 2:1-5

Sunday, December 24, 2017 Merry Christmas!

This is how the birth of Jesus Christ took place. When Mary his mother was engaged to Joseph, before they were married, she became pregnant by the Holy Spirit. Joseph her husband was a righteous man. Because he didn’t want to humiliate her, he decided to call off their engagement quietly.

(Matthew 1:18-19)
