The Bible summed up in Two Gardens, Two Caves, and Two Campfires

This Sunday Bob Fletcher returns to share with us – “The Bible summed up in Two Gardens, Two Caves, and Two Campfires“.  He will return the following Sunday, January 15, to share  “Chosen” John 15:1-17. We always appreciate Bob’s in-depth and insightful Bible discussions. Don’t miss it!

This Sunday we will be blessed with an update from our own Wilfred Boayue on his work in Liberia. Wilfred’s remarks will follow the lesson. Please be prepared to start class ten minutes early. Even though there will be less time for fellowship before class, there is always time afterward. We are all looking forward to this special start to another great year of fellowship and spiritual growth in CUC.

CUC Refreshments
Be sure to thank Linda Mooney, Bob Morisey, Patricia Mashburn, and Jan Ligon who are providing the CUC refreshments this Sunday.
