U Matters

The hazy, hot summer of 2015 is winding down.  On 23 August we kick off the new church year with "What's Cookin' at Union?"  There will be a spectacular BBQ, complete with our own Union Master Chef Potato Salad Contest. Please come and bring your friends and co-workers.  Eighty percent (80%) of people come to church because of a personal invitation.  My prayer is that we go from being a welcoming to an inviting congregation this Autumn. Why not make a list of  people you know who don't know Jesus?  Pick one or two and pray.  And then invite.

Enjoy the waning days of summer.  It is a time to relax, take some extra time to pray, read and spend time with the important people in our lives. And to prepare to invite your unchurched friends to meet your church friends, and maybe meet Jesus in the process.
