Happy Friday Union!

A little boy opened the big family Bible at home. He was fascinated as he searched through the old pages. Suddenly something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it closely. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages. “Mamma, look what I found,” the boy called out. “What have you got there, dear?” his mother asked. With astonishment in the young boy’s voice, he answered: “I think it’s Adam’s underwear.”

Well, at the very least the little boy knows his Bible. Indeed, our first parents used fig leaves to cover their shame and guilt — and the truth is— so have we ever since. Come to worship this Sunday and discover where we find our true and lasting security. The text is Hebrews 4:14-5:2 and the sermon is entitled “He Will Hold Me Fast.” I cant wait!

See ya in church!

Lenten Devotional Sign Up

It may be hard to believe, but Ash Wednesday is one month away. Many of us may still have Christmas decorations up, and yet we are already beginning to turn our attentions to Lent.

This year, we are asking for volunteers to help with our reflection and worship during such an important time in the church. On the link below, you will find a list of all of the daily Scripture readings from the Lenten lectionary. And here is where we need your help, family.

We are asking you to consider joining your brothers and sisters in reverence of this holy season. Simply select a day (or more) to volunteer to create a short reflection or devotion that will be shared with the entire Union Church family, via the website. These reflections can be created by an individual, as a couple, as a family, or as a household (or any combination).

Reflections need not be long or too involved. A short paragraph will do just fine. These should be 10 minute devotions that can easily fit into any busy schedule, and join Union Church together worship from anywhere. If you do not feel you can express yourself through your own words, think about how the daily reading resonates within you. You may be led to share a poem, a passage from a book, or even a song that shares a theme with that particular piece of Scripture.

We have all been blessed with unique abilities with which to worship the Lord. This Lenten season, we are hoping that you will share yours with your Union Church family.

Click the sign up link to select a date and complete your reflection of the scripture that corresponds. Completed Devotionals should be returned to Kellyn von Arx (uym@unionpresbychurch.org)

Food Pantry Donations Needed

The Deacons are accepting non-perishable grocery items for the monthly food pantry. We need spaghetti sauces, cake mixes, icing, canned fruit and vegetables as well as chili ingredients. We do accept all food donations. Additionally, paper products, cleaning supplies, health and beauty items will be accepted. Please put all donations in the donation boxes in Fellowship Hall. Thank you for your support!

Union and 412 Rescue

Currently a 412 Volunteer delivers produce every Sunday that needs to be used before it spoils. Peppers, pineapple, potatoes, apples, onions, cucumbers, mint, cilantro, and mangos have been in our delivery this month. We are encouraging our members to take this and share it with family, friends, and neighbors, especially those that may be food insecure. Our second Tuesday of the month Food Pantry currently serves 15-20 families that depend on our non perishable canned and boxed donations from the Crafton Giant Eagle. The addition of fresh produce is just an added benefit that we can offer our families. Recent donations from Scott Family Farm in Oakdale of fresh eggs and ground meat have been an extra bonus. The produce comes in large boxes and needs to be separated in bags. Anyone wishing to help with the delivery and bagging the produce is welcome to help. The donation usually comes between ten and noon on Sunday. The weekly donation is currently the best way to ensure food for Union’s food pantry, which is only once a month.
