CUC Sunday School Class

 The Easter Confusion and Amazement in Heaven

 This Sunday we will again have Mark  Goodwin as our speaker.  A retired minister from Church of the Nazarene, Mark always brings us an inspiring message. This Sunday his message is “The Easter Confusion and Amazement in Heaven”.  “And now this Good News has been announced to you by those who preached in the power of the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. It is all so wonderful that even the angels are eagerly watching these things happen.”  1 Peter 1:12   


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

Topic: CUC Zoom Meeting – April 30, 2023

Time: 9:30 AM Eastern time

Those attending class via Zoom should be signed into Zoom and admitted no later than 9:40 AM to prevent feedback noise. Also during the class please be sure  to  MUTE!  Thanks for everyone’s cooperation on this!

Message from Beth Hamilton

 Hi dear CUC friends!   Some of you have not met us. We are OLD CUC folks! My Bob will turn 93 on May 7.  He is doing very well, but unable to walk, due to eye problems.  He says that he will be back to CUC when he can walk in the door! (Beverly Tatom is always so dear about sending birthday cards to all of us! She is a winner! ) It would be wonderful if any of you friends would like to send Bob a birthday card.  Our home is 4434 Orchard Trace, Roswell, Ga.30076.  Please come by to see us at your convenience!  Thanks and Love!

Pleasant, SC (Charleston area). Please feel free to pass our contact information and good wishes along to any/all class members.” “We still follow the class email and remember the wonderful times we had with the class. It always pains us to hear of the medical problems our great friends are having.” Their home is: 2589 John Boone Ct, Mt. Pleasant, SC 29466, Phone 770-656-5584.
