But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Ephesians 4:7 NIV

An Answer to My Question

We are fortunate to have Rev. Melissa Kime-Hall giving our CUC lesson Sunday. As you know, June 12th is her last day at RUMC. We will miss her.

Her lesson title is “An Answer to My Question”. Her selected scripture is 1 Kings 19:1-20. She suggests that each of us read the scripture prior to the class.

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!
