“Now I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel. As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. Because of my chains, most of the brothers in the Lord have been encouraged to speak the word of God more courageously and fearlessly.”

Philippians 1:12-14

Must Ministries Lunch Program

 

A big thank you to our class for the steady contributions of bags of apples for Must Ministries each week! One more week to go!

After this past Tuesday we will have made 4800 lunches in the past 2 years for the children of Roswell who otherwise may not have lunch that day! We are so blessed to be able to do this wonderful ministry.

Drivers and riders are still needed for delivering the MUST lunches. If you are interested in helping with this, contact Sandy Griffin. The CUC MUST Lunch Committee has consisted of Sandy and Bill Griffin, Martha Jane Mason, Jeff and Lesleigh Coelho, Jim Boswell, Claudia Phelps.

You may drop off items for Garage Sale on Sundays with people waiting at the “Scout Hut” starting at 8:30 am and again between and after services. Volunteers will be able to help you unload your car. However, if possible, wait and donate on July 30.

Little Things Mean a Lot!

 

Apples to CUC for MUST lunches!

Box Tops should be clipped when you see them on boxes, cans, bags and brought in to the CUC basket. You can find a current list of products that feature Box Tops for Education by searching for Box Tops for Education on your computers. Quite a variety of items have them. Red Bird Missionary Conference Methodist center in rural Appalachia has an excellent computer site. Please refer to it for information about this.

Flip tops from cans – keep collecting them and bring to Sunday School. These go to support Ronald McDonald Houses

 


PrayeRequestHeader

  • Pray for Mary Serafina and her daughter Pam Pruit as they make every effort to deal with Pam’s advancing cancer as she returns home to Alabama for chemo.

Thanksgivings

  • Edna Smith – recovered and back to CUC following hernia surgery.
  • Linda Temples, former CUC member, has been approved by the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center to be listed for a kidney transplant and asks for prayers for her and Al as “this is a new journey and is somewhat stressful”!

Ongoing Prayer Request

  • Please pray for Pastor Andrew Brunson, wrongly imprisoned in Turkey, his wife and family, and for Terry and Wanda Taylor’s son Kent who is Andrew’s partner in ministry in Turkey.
A Turkish court on Wednesday (July 18, 2018)rejected appeals
to release Pastor Andrew Bronson, an American pastor being
tried on terrorism-related charges whose prosecution and
lengthy imprisonment has become a flash point in the 
increasingly testy relationship between the US and Turkey. 
After a prosecutor requested that Pastor Bronson be remanded, 
a judge set the next court date for Oct.12.

Pastor Bronson is innocent. Yet he’s being accused of “ 
Christianization” as a crime by the Turkish regime. 
This loving father and husband has been unjustly imprisoned
for more than 21 months, and now this travesty could continue
for another three months.

This mockery of justice - bogus charges, hearsay testimony
from “secret witnesses”, and intolerable delays - must end.

Inhumane conditions, an unjust trial and possibly 
years in a Turkish prison face Pastor Brunson. "He can never
leave his cell, ever, not to eat, not to go to the restroom,
not to get some fresh air”, said Kristina Arriaga, 
vice chairwoman of the US Commission on Internal Religious
Freedom [USCIRF]

Pastor Bronson has said: “ I desperately miss my wife and
children Yet, I believe this to be true, it is an honor to
suffer for Jesus Christ, as many have before me. 
My deepest thanks to all those around the world who are
standing with and praying for me."

Please pray for needs expressed and unexpressed for friends and relatives of CUC class members who are facing illnesses, loss of loved ones, and important decisions to be made.

(Please send updates on any of our ill or recovering classmates so the editor can keep information current)

“While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.’ So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off.”

Fellow CUCers, summer is here and that means Must Summer Lunches. Last year we made 2400 lunches and plan to do that again this year.

and then God stepped in

(Jesus is praying for his disciples just before his betrayal and trial) “Father, I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them.

 I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.

Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.”

When eight days had passed, Jesus’ parents circum­cised him and gave him the name Jesus. This was the name given to him by the angel before he was conceived. When the time came for their ritual cleansing, in accordance with the Law from Moses, they brought Jesus up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord. (It’s written in the Law of the Lord, “Every firstborn male will be dedicated to the Lord.”) They offered a sacrifice in keeping with what’s stated in the Law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons.

CUC Christmas Party

 

We’ve had a great sign-up for our CUC Christmas Party on December 4th. One hundred and six classmates have signed-up, and it is still not too late to put your names on the list.

The cocktail hour begins at 6:00 P.M. with a selection of passed hors d ‘oeuvres, followed by dinner at 7:00 in the ballroom.  The menu includes a carving station with prime angus loin and turkey, holiday salad, two vegetables, pasta, and artisanal breads. There will be a cheesecake station and a gourmet coffee and tea station with Italian syrups, etc.

After dinner, there will be a short program followed by dancing and fellowship. We will have a “white elephant” pass-a-long, and you will be provided bags during Sunday School for this event. So, dig out your Uncle Odell’s gift of a tie from last year or Aunt Opal’s hand knitted socks and prepare to have some fun with your friends.

The cost is $39.00 per person, and payment is due by Sunday Nov. 26th.  Make checks payable to CUC. Please call Vince or Donna Grosse if you have any questions. We would greatly appreciate everyone bringing a check this coming Sunday, as we will begin making the final arrangements with the club the following week. Additionally, anyone who didn’t pick up a bag for your “white elephant present” last Sunday should do so this Sunday. Dress for the party is “Christmas Casual or Festive Semi-Formal.”

Directions to the Metropolitan Club: Go north on GA-400 and exit onto Windward Parkway. Go east (right) on Windward approximately .4 mile to Edison Drive.  Turn right and then right again into the parking lot.  The club is located to the left of the foyer on the first floor of this building.

As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth.  His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”  “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” Jesus said, “but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life,  As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me,  Night is coming, when no one can work.  While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”  Having said this, he spat on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes.  “Go,” he told him, “wash in the Pool of Siloam.”  So the man went and washed, and come back seeing.

RUMC Friday Blast – Las Vegas

Dear RUMC Family, 

Monday morning we woke to the news of a mass shooting in Las Vegas. Fifty-eight people had been killed and 489 injured. Immediately, we try to find answers that might help us make sense of the event. I think we often seek to find something to make us feel safer. We search for something that will ensure the evil in a Stephen Paddock world will never touch ours. The problem is that his world has touched ours. We share the same space. Jesus doesn’t say: “Fear not, it’s just a dream. Trust me and nothing will never happen to you.” Jesus does actually weep at the grave of his friend Lazarus. Jesus does say, “Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Brokenness, grief, suffering, and mourning are a part of the arena we live in and Jesus is with us. We are not alone and he often meets us in those hurting places.

I would like to invite you to a time of prayer and healing. This is a place to meet the risen Christ and ask for His peace, power, and comfort in the lives of those who have lost loved ones. It is also a time to meet the risen Christ to mend our own brokenness as well.

Please consider joining us at a Service of Healing and Prayer, Sunday, Oct. 8, at 6:45 p.m. in the Chapel.

In His service,

Dr. Tom Davis
Senior Pastor
