CUC Newsletter -May 13, 2022

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Romans 12:1

The Heart of the Magnus Opus

Rusty Gordon has our CUC lesson on this Sunday, May 15. His lesson title is “The Heart of the Magnus Opus”. His scripture is Romans 12. We enjoy having Rusty as our speaker. He always brings us an interesting and challenging message.

CUC Sunday School Class

We continue to have class both in the classroom and on Zoom. We still have Zoom for those of CUC who prefer to stay at home or who are away from home! CUC is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

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!
