Weekly Update

Good afternoon fellow Bulls! I hope that you all had a great first week of classes as we begin a new year of school. It was great seeing many of you last week. For those of you who were not able to make it out the first week - rest assured there are plenty of opportunities to get involved! I just want to take a minute to remind you of some things that are going on this week and in the coming days. Please let us know if there is anything that we can do for you, or any specific ways that we can be praying for you. Each week we will send you an email with some of the pertinent information concerning RUF, USF, or just things we think would be helpful for you to know!

Shriner's Volunteer Opportunity

On the first and third Thursdays each month (Sept 3rd, 17th this month), RUF has committed to volunteer at Shriner's Hospital for Children. We will meet in the lobby of Shriner's at 1 PM and spend time with the kids who are at the hospital for treatment. What does the time look like? We'll spend an hour playing card games (like UNO), board games, coloring pictures, decorating cookies, or whatever activity we choose for that week. Suggestions are welcome! If you are interested, please contact Jeff Lee to let him know you will be there. Our goal is to glorify God by brightening a child's day who is likely dealing with some serious medical issues. God's Word says in Psalm 22:24, "For He (God) has not despised or abhorred the affliction of the afflicted, and He has not hidden His face from him, but has heard, when he cried to Him." Since these words are true of how God cares for the broken and afflicted, we believe this is a great opportunity for us to serve those who are hurting as well.
