EPWORTH IS OUR MINISTRY!
Did you know that in the last year Epworth Children’s Home gave 174 children a safe and loving place to call home? Each of these children had this opportunity because of United Methodist churches in South Carolina who embrace and provide for this ministry in support of the children and families in our state. We will participate in the annual Mother’s Day Offering on Sunday, May 12th, 2019, to benefit the children who call Epworth home. Please be in prayerful consideration of what God is calling you to give to this valuable and life changing ministry. For information about Epworth Children’s Home. http://www.epworthchildrenshome.org.

YOUTH

Evengers Assemble!
We’re looking for folks who would like to join our Student Leadership Team, The Evengers. We have many Evengers graduating this year, and we’ll need to fill their spots! Let’s clear up a misconception: being a student leader does NOT require you to speak in front of large groups of people. Leadership comes in many forms, and we have lots of things that need to be done “behind the scenes”. We Evengers are a tight knit group that has loads of fun doing things together for the glory of God and for our Youth of Union! Consider joining us! Email Eleanor for an application! Eleanor@unionunitedmethodist.org Applications deadline is April 25th.

Youth Sunday is Sunday May 5th – Plan to be there and participate!
