    U Matters

    Scripture says we are to “Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.” (Romans 12:15)  This Sunday we farewell Anto and Jess Ficatier. We rejoice that they are excited about beginning a youth and young adult ministry at a church in the UK, however, we are sad that they are leaving our Church community.

    Over the past three years, Anto has served at Union Church in the areas of youth, young adults and men’s ministry. Anto has been a valuable member of our pastoral team, co-leading a missions trip to Mongolia, being a part of our retreat planning team and preaching team.  Thank you Jess for teaching Sunday School and serving with two meaningful NGO’s in the city. You have both served the city well.

    Anto and Jess, know that you will be missed and we appreciated getting to know you both. We know that the Lord will use you wherever He takes you. This Sunday Anto will be preaching, please ensure you say goodbye. 

     

    Blessings for the next chapter,

    Pastor Michele
