A Service of Prayer and Healing
Good morning church,
Just a reminder that our Service of Prayer and Healing is tonight at 6 pm in the sanctuary. The simple service will include scripture and reflection. This will be a time of prayer for all and of anointing for those who wish to be.
Join us as the Spirit leads you.
Grace and Peace.

It’s Our 6th Annual…
“Backpack 2 School Bash”
Saturday, August 7th  10am - 1pm In the MAC!
Last year this Community event provided backpacks and school supplies for over 400 children in Union County. FUMC of Union County helped provide many of those backpacks. This year our church is again collecting primary aged (kgarten - grade 2) backpacks as well as general supplies on the lists attached to the purple drop off boxes located in the MAC lobby and Sanctuary narthex. COLLECTION BOXES ARE OUT! Thank you in advance for helping provide needed school supplies for children and families in Union County. If you would prefer to donate directly to the event you can drop your donation off in the treasure chests and label it for “Backpacks”. Any questions on how you can help further call Tricia Wallace at 229-402-9361.
