A Discussion on Labyrinths: Their History, Types, and Local Locations

Come and join the White Oak Grove CUUPs Discussion Group on September 4th, 2016 for a special class and discussion of Labyrinths!

There will be a free gift for the first 15 people!  We look forward to seeing you at this special class on Sunday September 4th, 2016 at 12:00PM in the Library.
Pre-registration is requested but not required and can be made at

Thanks to the members of White Oak Grove CUUPs for fulfilling all hospitality functions at that morning’s service. Please join us after the service for coffee and conversation in Deale Hall.
