"Blended" Worship in August

We’ll continue to hold one worship service at 11:00 AM during August but this service will “blend” parts of the Contemporary and Traditional Services.

A task force of the Worship Committee was approved by the Session to create this service. This group was made up of John Seybert, Sue Strunk, Chris The, Anthony Calvario, and Doug Gebhard.

Opportunities to Serve

The Usher Team

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 thomas.maclachlan@pnc.com

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 aburke3503@gmail.com

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 jobarker59@comcast.net

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 tbribar@outlook.com

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 tbribar@outlook.com

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 anthonycalvario@gmail.com
