CUC Sunday School Class

The Evidence of Creativity

We are delighted to have Ellen Shepard as our teacher in CUC this Sunday. Ellen was one of our pastors at RUMC 1998-2004….three years with Malone Dodson and three with Mike Long. She was the Minister of Education following Mike Miller’s retirement. Her lesson is “The Evidence of Creativity”. Psalm 37: 4-7a.


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
