Worship: The Antidote for Self-importance

We are pleased to have Mark Goodwin teach the CUC class for the next 3 Sundays. His topic and scripture for this Sunday is “Worship: The Antidote for Self-importance”, Revelation 5:9-14

CUC Sunday School Class

CUC attendance Sunday, January 2

Members: 36
Zoom: 22

Total 58

We continue to have class both in the classroom and on Zoom. It is good to be together again face to face, but we still have Zoom for those of CUC who prefer to stay at home or who are away from home!

Those attending class via Zoom should be signed into Zoom and admitted no later than 9:40 AM. This will eliminate the terrible feedback issues we experience when late Zoomers enter with their mics unmuted while allowing the tech team to concentrate at getting the various class presentations operable for presentation. Thanks for everyone’s cooperation on this!

Thank You from Murphy Harpst

“It is with a grateful heart that I thank you for your recent gift of $2000.000 which we received on December 12, 2001. In this season of Christmas, we are especially thankful for what your generosity means in the lives of the children at Murphy-Harpst. Unfortunately, cherished memories of family and warm memories of childhood often do not exist for them before they arrive in our care. So it is truly your support that helps us make the very most of the holidays for our children.” James Waddy, Vice President of Advancement
