CUC Newsletter – June 24, 2022

Sunday, June 26, 2022

2 Timothy 3:16-17 – All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that the person of God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.

The Unity of the Bible

For the next two weeks Sally Dowland will be our teacher. Her lesson title is “The Unity of the Bible.”… Let’s talk about the Old Testament: why some of us don’t like it, what ‘problems’ we have with studying it, and how we can come to love the stories of the Old Testament as our ‘family’ stories.

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!
