All of Me

Mark Kramer from the Berean class will be our speaker on Sunday. The title of his lesson is “All of Me”. He will look at the books of Haggai and Malachi. Haggai is 2 chapters and Malachi is 4. The specific scripture references are Haggai 1:3-15 and 2:15-19 and Malachi 1:8-14 and Malachi 3:7.

CUC Sunday School Class

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 to prevent feedback noise. Thanks for everyone’s cooperation on this!

Pray also for our Caregivers of those who are ailing!

Please pray for needs expressed and unexpressed for CUC members, and for friends and relatives of CUC class members who are facing illnesses, loss of loved ones, and important decisions to be made. Prayers also for our nation and its people.
