Last Sunday was Triple A: Advent, St. Andrew's--my ears are still ringing from the bagpipes--and Alpha. What a joy it is to celebrate the coming of Christ with the congregation.

This Sunday the Chancel Choir (with orchestra), will present "Canticles in Candlelight" at 9:30AM and 11AM. Forrest Morr and the choir have made their annual cantata an act of worship to God and a service to Union. Please come and bring your friends. We will celebrate communion and have a sermon at 8:30AM, U Cafe, and 5PM.

There is still time for you to buy a ticket to the Christmas Banquet this Friday (call Brenna at  +852 94475950 or email She said you can also show up at the door. The auction items are the best ever and all proceeds go to our youth ministry mission trips
