The Adult Bible Study has been slowed down some, with average attendance of 3 to 5 per week. Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to grow in the faith, as each week Pastor opens another NT book to read and study. Beginning in September Pastor Steve will begin a more involved and hands on Bible Study group. Watch for more details coming soon.
July is almost over and soon it will be back to school time, hard to believe the summer is moving so quickly. So as you plan for your vacation or just a few days off from work please keep the following opportunities in mind:
- Union Church will once again be working the food tent at Old Settler’s and you might want to sign up before all of the good spots are taken, please see Shirley Sollenberger or Julie Barton for more info.
- We will also have a float in the parade (last year we were the only church float), so if you have a hour or so of time Saturday morning of the parade please see Tara Blundy. She would like share the float between Union Church and Faithful Friends Preschool.
- The annual school supply/used clothing give-away will be held August 22 & 29, please see Kelly Walker to find out how you can donate or help.
We would also like to thank you for once again making Whitney’s Walk the “Fifth” Sunday collection. The Union Church team has donated over $400 to the effort to educate people to signs of depression and suicide prevention in the central Illinois area. We are hoping to bring the amount to over $1,000,000.00 raised in this the 12th year. You are helping to save lives through education and awareness.
