Golden Agers Ministry
Catching the Spirit!
Our long-standing Golden Agers has evolved into a Game Night Bunch. We meet the second Friday night at 6:00 p.m. of each month in the Fellowship Hall to eat, play games, and laugh.
During the month of March, we wore green and brought green food to eat (broccoli cheese soup, avocado-stuffed deviled eggs, and cupcakes with shamrock icing).
Put it on your calendar -- all ages are welcome!
We may have an indoor Easter Egg Hunt in April!

Cumberland Presbyterian Women's Ministry (CPWM)
This group is open to all women in the church. Our purpose is to accept and share the love and joy of Jesus Christ through the ministry of women in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. We seek to do this
as we pray, study God's Word, and reach out to others through missions, service, encouragement and fellowship. This goal is accomplished through a diversity of ministries. We contribute to missions with a focus on foreign needs.
Meetings are held each month in the Fellowship Hall. Please contact the President, Melinda Reams for meeting times.
Japanese Curry Ministry
Curry was introduced to Japan during the Meiji era (1868–1912) by the British, at a time when India was under their administration. The dish became popular and available for purchase in supermarkets and restaurants in the late 1960s. It has been adapted since its introduction to Japan, and is so widely consumed that it can be called a national dish.
At my home church in Japan, Koza Cumberland Presbyterian Church, volunteers serve curry and rice for lunch on every Sunday. Being a favorite dish of children and adults, a curry and rice lunch contributes to bringing people into the dining hall for a time of fellowship. We would like to introduce the tradition to Russellville FCPC. Masami and I, with the help of Japanese students at Tech, will cook curry and rice to serve you lunch once a month. There will be a small cost of $2.00 per plate to help with the cost of the food. This is not a fundraiser. I hope that you enjoy our cooking and you have a quality time of fellowship. I also hope that this ministry will bring new people in the community to our Fellowship hall. We are looking forward to seeing you on the second Sunday of each month.
Yasu Onodera, Director of Curry Ministry
We have been collecting food to donate to Main Street Mission for several years. For the past few years, we started donating food to the Russellville schools through the River Valley Food 4 Kids group to help meet a need for students who are going hungry. This year, we will be supporting the needs of the Area Agency on Aging. We collect non-perishable foods on Sunday morning and Monday night and deliver to the Agency on Wednesday. If you would like to contribute, bring food to the church at any time and it will be delivered to the appropriate people. As always, prayer for this ministry is appreciated.
