CUCC Update

Worship

Sunday Service
Following last year’s series on Genesis, we are kicking off the Fall with a new sermon series on Exodus. We will spend ten weeks (Sept 13 – Nov 15) following the people of God as they are rescued from Egypt, and as they begin an incredible journey with God. We are excited to dig into this dramatic story and to discover its many intersections with our own story.

As always, the weekly services are will be posted to: (http://www.cuccstc.org/sermons/), on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/cuccstc) and on our YouTube channel!

Wednesday Morning Worship
Throughout the Fall, join us for a virtual service of prayer and communion! Gathering via Zoom, Wednesdays at 7:00 am, we share our joy and concerns, pray together, and participate in Holy Communion. This is a wonderful opportunity to worship with other members of the church, and to enact many meaningful traditions of the church.
