Sermon by Reverend Arthur Briggs
 
Dr. Sunyong Hwang
Worship Musician

We are no longer required to take temperatures; however, masks are still required while in the sanctuary.   All guidelines will be posted in the sanctuary and should be reviewed before being seated. Communion will be observed this Sunday and elements will be available at the check in table.
We have been blessed with the duo of Reverend Arthur Briggs and his beautiful wife, Jessica. They have alternated and brought us their messages of hope and love since the first Sunday in June. Art will be in the pulpit again this Sunday and will be officiating for communion. In addition, Art and Jessica’s daughter, Giana, will be the scripture reader this week.  We are happy to have the Briggs family, including Gideon, as part of our worshipping community.

Rebecca Woodland will return to the pulpit for the July 10 worship service.

The CUW Leadership Team will convene for their monthly meeting immediately after worship in the sanctuary. We expect several guests from the CUC Council to join us for that meeting and CUW folks are also invited to stay for the meeting.
