Children’s Ministry Coordinator Kathy O’Connor and Family Ministry Director Tina Anderson had a blast at the 2016 Orange Conference this past week!

The Atlanta conference provided training and teaching in the areas of children, youth, and family ministries. This year’s theme was “Monday Is Coming,” and focused on relating our “Sundays” to the rest of the week for those we serve.

The conference was made possible through the freeing up of Pastor Grubb’s training funds as he was selected to participate in the Reynolds Program for Church Leadership.

Kathy and Tina are excited to work with Pastor Grubb in assessing how Union might benefit from implementing some of the ideas presented.

BackWoodsQuailClub logoJoin the Men’s Group Saturday, May 21, for a 10 a.m. shotgun start sporting clay shooting event at the Back Woods Quail Club in Georgetown. The goal is to gather 14 four-person teams, with Union inviting people outside of our church to join in. Cost is $75 per person. Included is 100 shots and lunch.

GardenSign250There are several ways you can make a difference in Union’s Community Garden and fulfill our original vision of connecting the resources of Heaven with the needs of the Earth.

One simple, pain-free way is to gather old newspapers. Garden workers will use these as a barrier in the garden to help deter weeds. Please bring your old newspapers to the Fellowship Hall.

If hands-on is your thing, come and dig in the dirt on your own row in the garden. With Adopt-A-Row, individual rows in the garden can be “adopted” by a family, small group, Sunday school class, youth group, etc. This is an excellent opportunity to get more involved in this worthy effort if the thought of maintaining the entire garden seems too much. See garden graphic below with each row number/produce to choose your piece of earth.

Community Garden rows 2016 600All hands are also appreciated when specific calls for more general assistance is needed.

If you are interesting in adopting a row or assisting in any way, please contact Francis or Terri Alford
