What a beautiful Sunday! On Sunday morning, we celebrated the Parent/Child Dedication of Cora Sledge – joining with her parents, Ryan and Lisa, in a covenant to walk alongside them as they parent Cora. We made promises to pray for them and to help teach Cora stories of the faith. Then, on Sunday night, we gathered again - to feast together and to give thanks to God for the many blessings we have been given. Seeing the many generations of the Union family was a beautiful sight. Thank you to everyone who made the evening so special.
Our journey through The Story has ended and now we enter into a new church year. The first Sunday of Advent is upon us. As we gather for worship this Sunday, we will light the first Advent candle, the candle of Hope. We will sing songs that speak of hope of the Messiah, and we will hear words about the Wonderful Counselor, promised to us so long ago. Sunday night will be our annual Hanging of the Greens service as we prepare our sanctuary for Advent. The evening begins with a Chili Supper at 5:30. I hope you can join us as we begin this holy season together.
