U Matters

Recently, a first time visitor commented on the spiritual warmth he experienced at Union. A long time attender commends our "invitational, non-judgmental, welcoming spirit." God has equipped some of you with a winsome and welcoming gift. It is more than a natural niceness--there seems to be a supernatural dimension. Thank you for making Union a friendly place to meet and grow in Christ!
