“Rejoice in hope, be patient in affliction, be constant in prayer.” — Romans 12:12

Dear Union Church Family,

My heart is heavy with grief this morning, and I am sure you are also feeling the weight of sorrow for our brave soldiers who lost their lives yesterday in Afghanistan. Forces of evil we struggle to imagine or understand viciously attacked their mission of mercy.

You’ve seen the images of our soldiers caring for infants, sharing water and food with desperate mothers and their young children. The goodness and courage of these men and women is an affront to the evil that permeates this region. We are left feeling frustrated, helpless and hopeless. As your pastor, please hear me when I tell you we are not hopeless. Now more than ever, we must unite and passionately petition God for his mercy, comfort and peace. We must remain constant and committed in prayer as we continue to face the challenges of the pandemic, the results of natural disasters in our country and hemisphere, and now, the tragedy in Afghanistan.

Suffice it to say, we are people in desperate need of hope and courage living in the brokenness, division and rampant evil of this world. This Sunday in worship we will be looking at that old familiar story of David and Goliath. The text is I Samuel 17:1-11; 32-51, and the sermon title is “Standing Firm!”

Standing with you in hope,

Mask Policy

“The leadership of Union Church is well aware that COVID cases are on the uptick in several parts of the country. If those numbers should increase in our community, and/or we are given a mask mandate by the government, we may need to change our mask policy. But for now, we will not require masks to be worn for the worshipping community of Union Church and we will leave it up to individuals and families to make that decision. We know that many in our church have strong feelings regarding masks and vaccinations. As followers of Jesus, we are to be gracious with each other and give to each other grace to have differing views, and to see each other in light of the gospel.”

We thank all of you who continue to give yarn and monetary donations, they are much appreciated. Call Loraine at (412) 452-0297.

Opportunities to Serve This Fall

Usher Team Ministry

Join this ministry that helps guests and members experience the joy of worshipping God. Ushers create a great hospitality experience by helping people find a seat if needed, and making the service run smoothly by passing collection plates, taking attendance and more. If you are interested speak to or email Tom MacLachlan at

Serve on the Welcome Team

Union desires to foster a warm, friendly, hospitable environment that surprises skeptics, eases the unchurched, and empowers members. Join the Welcome Team and help us! It’s fun and easy, say hello, exude warmth and friendliness. As Christ has welcomed you, so welcome one another. For more information contact Anne Burke at

Serve with the Coffee Fellowship Team

Coffee, tea and snacks are an essential component of Sunday morning church life and community. Join the Coffee Fellowship Team and help provide for this much needed ministry. Tasks include setting up, cleaning up and just providing help where needed. If you feel called to serve speak to or email Joann Barker

Serve with the Live-Stream Team

[TBR] As we move to two worship services, we would like to expand our Live-Stream Team that takes care of operating the camera and the streaming box. The technology is pretty simple and easy to use. If you are the least bit tech savvy, this could be a good fit for you. We plan to put together a rotation so that team members would be responsible for 1 or 2 Sundays a month. If you are interested speak to or email Pastor Tom at

Serve with the Nursery Team

Our new format for worship and the Discipleship Connect Hour will require expanded hours for our nursery care for infants and toddlers. We encourage parents and grandparents to consider signing up for one Sunday a quarter to help in the nursery. (Of course you don’t have to be a parent or grandparent to help out! All adults are welcome!) The nursery will always have one paid staff who will “be in charge.” Adults who sign up to serve will act as helpers, so there is no need for extensive knowledge of the nursery procedures or special clearances. Just an affinity for holding babies, changing diapers, and loving the children of our Union Family! If you are interested speak to or email Pastor Tom at

Serve with the Praise Team

The Praise Team is looking for individuals who would like to play either piano or bass guitar during our contemporary worship services. If you are interested, speak to or email Anthony Calvario
