God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made Him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin.

Why Should I Continue to Believe?
CUC’s teacher this Sunday is our own Jeff Coelho. His topic is “Why Should I Continue to Believe?”. Jeff shared this subject with a Catholic teen club he once lead in Hawaii where he was a motivational speaker.
We are thankful for our CUC refreshments each week. This week they will be provided by Linda Mooney, Nancy Van Horn, Peggy Rodway, and Jill Caviness.
Please also thank Wanda Taylor for her work in organizing which class members bring refreshments each week.
