CUC Sunday School Class

We Are Missionaries to Alabama, How About You?
We are delighted to have Rusty  Gordon back visiting CUC this  Sunday with his  message being: “We are missionaries to Alabama, How about you?”
The scripture Rusty  has  chosen  is: 2nd Corinthians 5:16-20. He says,”I look forward to being with CUC, sharing a little update and my thoughts on how God wants to use all of us.”


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 – May 14, 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!
