The Word Became Flesh

Don McNew will be bringing our fourth Advent lesson this Sunday. The lesson title is: “The Word Became Flesh”. We look forward to Don’s presentation of the lesson as we prepare for Christmas next week.

CUC Refreshments

We are thankful for our CUC refreshments each week. This Sunday they will be provided by Marlene & Don MacLeod and Dee & Bill Scott

Celebrating Christmas

We will be graced with the voices of our own Voice Our Faith Sunday School class this Sunday between 9:45-10:15. They will carol in the halls of the Sanctuary and Chapel buildings, as they have done in years past. They want to spread good cheer and a happy holiday spirit.

Be sure to wear your best holiday duds to CUC this Sunday. We will see who wears the most festive sweaters, ties, or socks.
