New Members Welcomed Today! As a family of faith committed to boldly & creatively embodying the life and ministry of Jesus, we would like to join with YOU. We’d like to be a context and inspiration for your own spiritual path, and work with you to make your heart, your world, your life more peace-filled and joy-full. Working together, we want to make God’s love visible & real to all. Pls note: this opportunity is usually the 3rd Sunday of a month but Rev. Kent was away so we’ll do it today!
Weekly compline service to begin this evening. This Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m. in Cowan Chapel and each Sunday evening, Union Church hosts a time of worship for everyone who yearns for a night prayer of quietness at the end of the day and the beginning of the week, a way to still your heart and mind. In this night prayer of psalm, silence, and song—this compline—we ask God, “Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for unto thee do I lift up my soul.” All are welcome. If you have never chanted the psalms before, you are welcome to come fifteen minutes early to practice with our cantor, so that you might join the singing during worship.
Wednesday Evening Open Table – Supper is at 5:30 (provided—no need to bring anything), other activities and groups too, including Youth Group at 6; ConneXions (for college students & young adults) and Handbell Ensemble rehearsal both at 6:30! Come for supper and hear all about it!
