Sunday, December 24, 2017 Merry Christmas!
This is how the birth of Jesus Christ took place. When Mary his mother was engaged to Joseph, before they were married, she became pregnant by the Holy Spirit. Joseph her husband was a righteous man. Because he didn’t want to humiliate her, he decided to call off their engagement quietly.
WHOSE CHILD lS THIS?
The speaker this Sunday is our own Myra Belote continuing the Adam Hamilton book: “Faithful, Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph”. She is reviewing Chapter 2 –“Whose Child is This?”, based on this week’s scripture. This is the lesson we missed on December 10th because of the snow. Although Advent traditionally ends on December 24, CUC will continue the Advent lessons through the beginning of January.
We are thankful for our CUC refreshments each week. This week they will be provided by Martha Jane & Charlieand Mason Claudia & John Phelps
