Waiting To Be Heard

We are pleased to have Mark Goodwin teach the CUC class again , completing his series of 3 lessons. He will return this Sunday for Lesson 3: “Waiting To Be Heard”, Psalm 27:8, Isaiah 65:1-2 & I Thess. 5:16-18. We have very much enjoyed his messages these past few weeks.

CUC Sunday School Class

CUC attendance Sunday, January 16.

In spite RUMC closure with snow and ice and power outages, and thanks to our wonderful CUC Technical Team members Doug Tatum, George Waite, and Gene Osborne and with the help of Garlinn Story and her Zoom connection, and then Sue Waite’s ability to be able to communicate quickly to CUC members via email, we were able to have our CUC class last Sunday.

Total of 53 Members on Zoom !

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!
