U Matters

Chris Yorks and his worship team have been preparing all week for a jazz service at 11:00AM that should be a joy to all. The entire staff has been working on starting a new church year and you can read all about it below. God has blessed Union Church since 1844 and we can’t wait to see how Jesus will continue to be glorified this year at Union. Welcome back—and bring a friend.

Saturday Eve Couples’ Bible Study (CBS) The SAT Couple Bible Study group will study the
Couples of the Old Testament” by the LifeGuide Bible studies series this Fall. The nine couples from the Old Testament will be Adam & Eve, Abraham & Sarah, Isaac & Rebekah, Jacob & Rachel, Boaz & Ruth, Elkanah & Hannah, David & Abigail, Hosea & Gomer and King Xerxes & Esther. These were the couples who live with chronic disappointment and couples who overcome all obstacles to be together. In these timeless stories (though some may be strange to our culture), we will have much to learn about marriage, God and ourselves. Our first session will be Saturday, 3 September from 6:00PM to 8:00PM. New couples or those who are dating seriously are very welcome to join our study. Our group focus is to build Christ-centered marriage and family. We meet twice a month. Besides bible study, we have prayer and fellowship with a variety of good food, and young children are welcome too.  We usually meet at Jardine Lookout, Parkview, or Sai Ying Pun. For more details, please contact & Linda Tan.
