Commit everything you do to the Lord; trust Him and He will help you. He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.
Psalm 37: 5 – 6

What Does the Bible Say About Homosexuality?
The teacher for CUC class this week is again Alexander Thomson for the second part of “What Does the Bible Say About Homosexuality?”(It’s not what you think – Listen: Part 1 , Part 2 ) This past week focused on the Old Testament. This week he will look at what the New Testament says on the subject.
Alexander is one of the RUMC members who has agreed to teach classes to adult Sunday School classes on an approved list of subjects.
