Reflections for your week

Each Wednesday, we will share a devotional written by one of our ministers or someone from the CUC community. A devotional typically includes a Bible scripture and a short reflection. We invite you to use these devotionals to support you in meditation, prayer, and reflection throughout the week.

You can also read Daily Devotionals from the United Church of Christ!
