October 5

Fall is upon us. With the change in season comes many more opportunities for service and missions at Union. Let me share one of these with you and invite you to participate with your church family.

On Saturday, we will gather from 9-12 for our annual Fall Clean-Up Day. This year we will concentrate our work outside, and on the kitchen and store room inside. We will try to finish the landscaping around the building, clean up overgrown areas, mulch and plant new plants, power wash the cemetery fence and front steps and porch – just to name a few jobs. To make all this happen, we need your help. If you can volunteer, even if it is only for an hour, please plan to come. Bring work gloves and yard equipment. It looks like a beautiful day is in store. What better way to enjoy the beautiful weather than to spend it with your church family!!

Why do we do all this cleaning? Over the next few months we will be inviting friends, family members, and guests into our building. There will be Fall Family Fun Night, Thanksgiving Family Dinner, Hanging of the Greens, Advent, Christmas Eve, Sundaes With Santa, and members of our community coming by to pick up their Thanksgiving Boxes. We want to be as welcoming as possible. Building and grounds that looks their best is just one part of how we welcome people. 

It is a joy to be a part of such a warm and welcoming community of faith. Don’t you agree?
