BLESS THE CITY
Over 70 Union people responded to the call to go and serve on Saturday, 16 October 2021. Sixty (60) of us gathered in the Sanctuary to worship and be commissioned by Pastor Michele. Then we scattered! 7 teams served our Wan Chai neighbourhood through Sons & Daughters, sold flags in Tsi m Sha Tsui for Kun Sun prison ministry, served and prayed at Chung King Ministry and St Barnabas' Society and Home, engaged with the underprivileged in Tin Shui Wai, met new families at Tamar Park, and wrote messages of encouragement to the elderly residents at China Coast Community.
People have described how their faith was stretched, how they drew closer to new people at Union, and the desire to serve more. One team coordinator commented, "It was an experience for me, as I had to learn to partner with God, Himself...for helping hands, food, and cards for elderly residents."
We thank God for this opportunity to go on outreach as a church family and love our neighbours in such tangible ways.
