1. Office hours for Pastor Rhodes are Wednesdays from 8:30am-12:30pm.

2. Reverencing the Cross; We begin Worship by facing the back of the sanctuary. As we sing the first hymn the Cross is carried to the front of the church. We should turn and bow as the Cross passes by. We do the same at the end of Worship as the Cross is carried from the front to the back of the Sanctuary. Symbolic of the procession with the Cross of Jesus going on before, is a powerful suggestion of the Christian Life, following Christ wherever he leads.

3. Please remember to share and use the service videos as an introduction to CULC to your friends and neighbors as an assist to help increase the flock.
