CUC Newsletter – June 11, 2022

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

African Missionary Ancestors

Scott Dickson has our lesson June 12th and 19th. His title for June 12th is “African Missionary Ancestors”. His scripture is Matthew 28:19-20 .

From The Message: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.

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! (And for when Covid rears its ugly head!)

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!
