CUC Newsletter – February 24, 2023

Luke 23:26 – As they led him away, they seized Simon from Cyrene, who was on his way in from the country, and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus.

Luke 23: 33:34a – When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him, along with the criminals-one on his right, the other on his left. Jesus said “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.

Our Lenten Series study will be from the book Final Words From the Cross by Adam Hamilton. Nancy Wistrand will be teaching chapter 1 entitled “Father Forgive Them…”.
