Union's annual Tea Cup Sale fundraiser brought in $1,722 to provide Christmas gifts to a dozen children.

In working with our local elementary schools to identify those in need, six children from South Conway Elementary School and six children from Waccamaw Elementary school will receive a much brighter Christmas!. 🎄🎁

The Golden Spoon winner of the 2019 MYF Chili Cook-off was Victor and Betsy Fruhling. Second place went to Dennis and Kay Graham, parents of Jill Cribb and third place was awarded to Jonathan Sellers. A total of $551 was raised for youth activities and missions.

The youth will be going to Ground Zero for “iWorship with Brock Gill” THIS Sunday, November 10.  All youth need to be at the church campus by 5 p.m.

Please bring in your filled M&M tubes THIS Sunday. After worship, the youth will lay the quarters out to see how far they will go around the sanctuary.  

Come to a tropical paradise THIS Sunday, November 3, at 10:10 a.m. in the fellowship hall for ALIVE, our monthly live production where we tell new stories of old truths. 

 

Because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions -
it is by grace you are saved.

Ephesians 2:4-5 (NIV)

Mark your calendars for Sunday, December 8, at 6:30 p.m. for the adult choir Christmas cantata. Practices are Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.

The children's choir's program, Random Acts of Christmas, is set for December 15, at 6:30 p.m. Practices are Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m.

If you missed your M&M tube, get one from a youth. They are inviting you to eat the candy in the tubes, replace it with quarters, and return it when filled. ($13.50 fills the tube)

The youth want to see how far the quarters will go around the church. All proceeds go to benefit the next generation!

Live music, hot coffee, and treats! Page Anderson, family, and friends will perform live at Union United in the fellowship hall Saturday, November 23, at 7 p.m. Come out and bring a friend!

Trunk or Treat 2019 was a huge success! We had an estimated 250 people to enjoy browsing decorated trunks, getting candy, and eating hot dogs and popcorn. The longest lines of the evening were at Tireless Jim O'Connor's cotton candy station!

A big thanks to Mrs. Kathy and all who participated, gave out treats, baked or bought cupcakes for the popular cupcake walk, dressed in costume, decorated, cleaned up, or anything in between. This event is our highest attended community event each year!

Join in the fun for Union's annual Tea Cup Sale fundraiser Saturday, November 9. (Note time changes.)

  
  4:30 p.m. - Doors open to buy tickets and shopping begins.

    5 p.m. - A soup and sandwich dinner served, with donations accepted.
  
    6 p.m. - Ticket drawings begin and gift winners announced.


Proceeds are used to buy Christmas gifts for less fortunate children in our community.

Great things to donate are baked goodies, homemade arts and crafts, and new items. Non-perishable donations will be stored in the corner room by the wreath room upstairs in the sanctuary.
 
What is a Tea Cup Sale? At the door, buy a handful of 50-cent tickets. Browse items and determine your favorite treasures. Shop by placing a ticket with your name in a cup beside the items. One ticket is drawn from each cup and that name will be called aloud to identify the person who wins the gift. The more tickets you put in the cup, the better chance you have of winning.
 

It's time again to open our parking lot and hearts to families in and out of the church for Trunk or Treat. It happens THIS Sunday, October 20, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in The Garden parking lot. It is one of our biggest turnout events of the year. Let's make it a continued successful outreach to families!
 
UMYF will not have its regular meeting this Sunday evening due to participating in Trunk or Treat.
 

The youth will be going to Ground Zero THIS Sunday, October 19, to worship with Sean McDowell. Be prepared to leave the church at 5 p.m.

The Men's Group, and some budding members, worked together this past Saturday and quickly constructed a much-needed handicap ramp for a member of our community.

The youth will soon be handing out M&M tubes to the congregation. They are inviting you to eat the candy in the tubes, replace it with quarters, and return it when filled. The youth want to see how far the quarters will go around the church. This is the first youth fundraiser for the year and all proceeds go to benefit the next generation!

The Men’s Group will meet THIS Saturday, October 5, at 8 a.m. to build a handicap ramp. The home is located at 4624 Liberty Lane in Conway, which is off Highway 134 that runs between Cates Bay and U.S. 378. The home is near the end of Liberty Lane on the right behind another mobile home.

The men plan to have the supplies and materials available on-site; however, please bring a set of post hole diggers if you have them.

There will be water available and hot dogs and chips for lunch. All those who would like something to drink besides water are asked to please bring it.

United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF) will go to 810 Bowling in Conway for 5th Sunday Funday. The group will leave right after the fellowship meal. Bowling will be paid for, but youth are asked to bring money for snacks.  

Trunk or Treat 

It's time again to dress up your vehicle (and maybe yourself) for Trunk or Treat. It happens Sunday, October 20, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in The Garden parking lot. It is one of our biggest turnout events of the year. Let's make it a continued successful outreach to families! Let Kathy know if you can participate in handing out treats.

We broadcast our Sunday worship service live on Facebook as a courtesy to those unable to attend as well as a way for potential attendees to get to know us. All of those who are on the worship platform as well as those walking past the camera in the aisle near the front pews will be captured and broadcast on Facebook. If you do not wish to appear in the video, please position yourself accordingly.

 
Join us every first Sunday at 10:10 a.m. in the fellowship hall for Alive, our live monthly family production where the Bible takes center stage. This month's (September) production, "Little School House on the Prairie," shows us what God has to say about how to react to those treating us badly.

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Romans 12:21
 
God is good and good wins in the end.

TST Thanksgiving

 

 

 

Please spread the word The Shepherd's Table is having a FREE Thanksgiving lunch.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,

I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. - Jesus Christ
Matthew 25:35,36 (NIV)

The UMYF Chili Cook Off on Sunday, November 19, brought in more than $600 for our youth missions and activities.

Congratulations to Hal Allen, who earned top honors and the Golden Spoon award. Second place went to Sean Quick and Keith Collins brought in third.

Equipment for the long-awaited children's playground has been ordered and is expected to take approximately six weeks to manufacture. Soon-to-be installed are a playground unit for children 2- 5, a unit for kids 5-12, and a 4-bay swing set with 8 swings (6 regular and 2 baby). Union will install the equipment and will call for volunteers as they time nears.

This represents a big push in making the children's playground a reality for kids in our church and community!
