U Matters

"What's Cookin' at Union?" promises food, fun, and friendship (and the annual staff dress up day).  As we reunite with old friends, let's be on the lookout for new friends.  Paul writes in Romans 15:7, "Welcome each other as you have been welcomed by Christ."

We welcome an old friend - he was in the youth group of the first church I served.  Chip has his MBA from Northwestern and his Ph.D. from Princeton.  He is a leader in the Presbyterian Church (USA).  He is a great preacher who will give a fresh perspective on a puzzling parable.

Opportunities at Union
