CUC Newsletter for November 6, 2022

How from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:15-17

Sunday, November 6, 2022

Don’t forget you can get an extra hour of sleep on Saturday night as Daylight Saving Time ends,and you can have plenty of time to get to Sunday School!

The Apocrypha

Dean Tucker will be continuing his very interesting two part lesson on the Apocrypha. The Apocrypha is not considered, by most Protestant denominations, as the inspired word of God and was never canonized. Nevertheless, the Apocrypha was written by Godly men and thus considered of some value. Dean thanks the CUC class for the opportunity to present his research findings on the Apocrypha these two Sundays.

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 those with or exposed to Covid or flu) 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!
