About the event
Well most everyone is getting wind of this “celebration” coming up for our church’s 125th Birthday! Truth is...the date has moved a few times and now with it being in January 2019, we will actually be celebrating the 125 years we have accomplished here at Union! What began as a simple Sunday service of recognition has now become (most deservedly) an entire weekend of unmatched celebration that will take us all back through time and into the future of hope and promise! Here are just some of the highlights of this event:
Friday, January 18th will be a chance to attend the “BOOTH BROTHERS” in concert right on our campus. This is a sort of “opening” if you will to a great weekend of events! We have come so far with our concert series. Back in 1995 I booked Sue Dodge from the Gathers to do a concert here. We were in the Historic church and it was such a joy to watch her arrive in her own car and she had a bag full of music tracks. Her income was a collection and being taken out to eat by my family. Now the big buses arrive fairly often at our new church with some amazing groups!
Saturday, January 19th at 2PM will be fun as well as a very special “Hymn Sing” will take place in the Historic church led by Jim Lanier. Followed by a Ice Cream social!
Sunday January 20th is the big day of worship where just one single service at 10AM will provide a variety of the finest music, stories, drama, and surprises designed by Pastor Jim to honor this glorious establishment and its history! Not only that, but we will see faces that we haven’t seen in years and welcome old friends and family from distant places and other churches. Following the service a great LUNCH will be served. Meal tickets go on sale for $10. You can pick them up at the Welcome Center in the church loby or in church office.
