All Things New Prayer Vigil
Last Chance to Sign Up!
Tomorrow, January 15, we will hold a 12-hour virtual prayer vigil, where our congregation will come together to pray for God’s vision of grace and generosity to take root anew at Central Union. Each hour will be divided up into 15-minute blocks and we are asking you to sign up for one block to pray. We will provide you with guided prayers and spiritual practices that you may use, or you can pray as the Spirit leads you. Together, as a community, we will cover all 12 hours in prayer. 

If you have questions or if you would like to commit to pray for a 15-minute block please email Cayanna Herrera at Cayanna-herrera@centralunionchurch.org. May God, who makes all things new, be at work among us!
Learning Tree-Annex with Lloyd Lim
Topic: How to Read Your Pocket Constitution
Join CUC member Lloyd Lim on January 25 or January 27, from 5 to 6 PM for a 30-minute presentation on how to “short-circuit” those pocket U.S. Constitutions you might get from time to time from a politician or advocacy organization. Despite the brevity of this document, reading left to right, word for word, can be not much fun. Lloyd will give you the design ideas and interpreting principles for the Constitution which will help you get at what you need at any given moment quickly. After the presentation, there will be 30 minutes available for Q&A.
