    Life Choices Center: Change For Life - Now through March 24th


    Change For Life

    It doesn’t take much to change a life. During the months of February and March, we are seeking to change lives with our support of the Life Choices Center. This wonderful ministry offers encouragement, parenting classes, baby supplies and more to young people who find themselves unexpectedly expecting. By filling a baby bottle with your spare change and returning it to the Resource Center by March 24th, you are helping to change the lives of men, women, and unborn children across Broome County.

    For more information, please contact us at info@unioncenter.org.

    Baptism Orientation: Sunday, March 31st after each service.


    Baptism Orientation

    Have you started to follow Christ, and want to obey his command to be baptized and publicly identify with Him?

    This Easter we will be baptizing those who are following Christ, and have not made this public. Come to our Baptism Orientation on March 31, after either service. Or call our office at 754-8222, so that we can know of your interest, celebrate God’s work in your life, and help you prepare for your baptism.

    TLC Soul Care Training: Saturday, May 18th from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


    Healing Heart

    A large part of Jesus’ ministry involved stepping toward hurting people so they might experience healing. Therefore, those who are his physical presence on Earth today, the Church, should expect that this would be a large part of their ministry as well. However, it is often the case that the Church is found stepping away from rather than stepping toward those who are hurting. This stepping away is not because the Church is uninterested. Rather, the Church finds itself unsure. Loving followers of Christ simply do not know what to do with hurting people, what it looks like to approach them in a way that brings healing. Therefore, hurting people never experience the loving touch of Christ which can bring them healing. However, this does not have to be the case. A Church can take steps to discover how to carry out this vital part of Jesus’ ministry, should it choose to do so. As the people of God called Union Center, we are moving to take these steps because we want to be like Christ so that those in our midst and community might find healing through our touch. We will take our first step on Saturday, May 18 during a day-long retreat at Sky Lake. At this retreat, we will discover our calling as Christ’s body to extend loving care to the hurting and how this begins with the practice of listening. This training is free, but those who wish to attend must sign up at the Resource Center by Sunday, May 12th.
