This Sunday you will be blessed by the ministry of Ray Austin. Ray is the retired Senior Minister of First Christian, Athens, and is a frequent visitor in our worship services along with his wife, Carol. Please welcome them warmly this Sunday, as I am away.
I will be traveling with our youth to the annual Georgia Disciples Youth Assembly at Epworth-by-the Sea. This has long been a tradition at Union and it will be exciting to introduce it to a new group of Union youth this year. Please pray for safety as we travel on Friday and Sunday, and for God to speak to all of us during our time there.
You have been hearing a lot about the upcoming Spaghetti Dinner and Silent Auction on St. Patrick’s Day, Sunday night, March 17. The money raised that night will go toward our upcoming mission trip to Puerto Rico. How can you help? There are several ways:
First, invite your friends and neighbors to come and join us. We need people to purchase the wonderful items that have been donated. There will be free tickets to hand out to your friends when you invite them to come. You will also find an “event” on the church Facebook page. Please share it on your personal page if you use Facebook. In the coming weeks there will be newspaper ads and a paid Facebook ad. Please be looking for them. Second, if you have an item or service that you would be willing to donate, please let us know.
We are already praying for God to work in us during this trip. Will you join us in prayer?
