Campfire: Sunday, September 4th at 6:00 p.m.


Campfire

Campfires are gathering places. We join with others around the campfire, sharing our lives and laughing at one another’s stories, enjoying the warmth of its glow. The campfire is a place where it is easy to practice being the Church as we eat, laugh, and share our love with one another. We invite you to join us around the campfire, to be the Church. Join us as we celebrate our God, one another, and the wonderful life God has given us.

Back to Church Sunday: September 11th


Back to Church Sunday

Come and bring a friend on Sunday, September 11th! This is our Back to Church Sunday, where we want to welcome people back from summer travels and other extended periods away from church.

We will be highlighting ways in which you can join others here at Union Center and be encouraged and helped as you follow Jesus. Main Street will be turned into a ministry fair so that you can connect with people in our different ministries and discover who might be a great group to journey with during this season of your life.

Prayer Retreat

Come away with us to beautiful Sky Lake Retreat Center, 30 minutes from the church! It will be a time of enjoying indoor and outdoor beauty while alternating between being guided to consider a passage of scripture together, and then being given time alone to communicate with God and listen for any response from Him.

Lunch is included, please register at the Resource Center, and pay $5.00 for the lunch.

*You will not be asked to pray in front of others.

Rural Poverty Simulation: Sunday, October 16th at 4:30 p.m.


Rural Poverty

As the Church, we carry hope and love to a hurting world starting with our neighbor. However, our neighbors often cannot receive the hope and love we offer because they cannot understand us as we are approaching them. We might live next door but our realities, our understandings of the world, the very language we speak are often worlds apart. Rather than shrugging and saying, “They just are not interested,” perhaps we should ask “Who is my neighbor?” “What is their reality?” “What is it like to live in their shoes?” When we ask these questions and seek their answers, we find we are able to have common ground and the gospel and hope we offer are met with open arms.

We invite you to join us as we spend an evening seeking to understand our neighbor, specifically the most vulnerable of our neighbors, the rural poor. Our area of ministry is filled with people for whom poverty is an everyday challenge, a challenge that isn’t overcome simply by working harder. We will spend an evening seeking to experience a month in their shoes so we might understand the realities of their everyday lives and pursue together as the Church how we might seek the restoration of all things including the lives of our neighbor with the hope of the gospel. Pre-registration is encouraged and may be completed at the Resource Center or by calling the office.
