Dear Union Church,

Ready, set, GO! We officially kicked off the fall season last Sunday with all of its excitement and the thrill of new beginnings. What a day! Speaking of new beginnings, congratulations are in order to our Administrative Assistant, Ashley Reeves, as she and her husband Ben welcomed into the world their son, Paxton. Paxton Phillip Reeves was born to them at 6:33am on Monday, September 20th. Please pray for both Ashley and baby as they both remain at the hospital undergoing some additional medical care. Kellyn Von Arx will be filling in for Ashley while she is away on maternity leave, so please bear with us as we make that transition.

Also, bear with us as we work out some of the kinks with our new, revised Discipleship Connect Hour. The children will be in class until 10 :30 a.m. We ask that parents take advantage of the opportunity to review the lesson for the day and suggested family activities for the week based upon the lesson. Handouts for parents will be located in the Lounge, outside the main church office on the 1st level of the CE wing. Feel welcome to grab a cup of coffee and proceed to the Lounge following worship. Those parents who choose not to join the conversation in the Lounge, should please wait in Fellowship Hall until 10:30 a.m. You will pick your children up in Fellowship Hall. This will prevent the interruption of the children’s classes.

Finally, would you please pray for our beloved friend and long-time member, Jackie Pfaub. Jackie is presently in hospice care at Allegheny General and it appears that her time with us this side of eternity is quickly approaching. So, please pray for her and her family during this sad and difficult time.

This coming Sunday I will continue part two in our series, Christianity 101. The sermon title is “The Beloved Community” and I can’t wait to be with you in worship!

See ya in church!
Billy

PS:
Missions and Outreach Kickoff:
Sunday the 26th at Noon, the Missions and Outreach Team will be gathering in Fellowship Hall after the church service. This is a great opportunity for you to join the team and get involved! We have several opportunities to serve this fall, so please join us for one of these opportunities and/or join us for this meeting.

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 between 10-12 that needs to be unpacked and separated into bags to be used before it spoils. We have offered this additional service to our present Food Pantry clients as a supplement to our monthly boxes. What food we have left we encourage our members to take to share with family, friends and neighbors who are food insecure. Anyone wishing to help with delivery and bagging is welcome to help. Please contact one of your deacons to volunteer!
