"Lawn Chair" & Online-Only Worship! 

Covid-19 Update

Important Union UMC Worship News: As announced this past Sunday, we are moving to a two week rotation of outside & online-only worship. So mark your calendars;

- Sept 13th and 20th will be outside Lawn Chair Worship at 9am! Bring a chair, your mask, and let's worship, plus the service will be broadcast live on YouTube! (weather permitting. In the event of rain the service will be moved indoors to Online Only but broadcast live. Weather decisions will be announced ASAP via social media and PhoneTree).

- Sept 27th and Oct 4th will be Online-Only Worship on YouTube at 9am! This is being recorded in advance so to allow multiple voices from the Union community to be part of it. 

We will then flip to Lawn Chair Worship October 11th & 18th, and so on.

- As we move into cooler weather in the next couple of months while managing the risk of Covid-19 we will continue to adjust and adapt. Your prayers, presence, gifts, and service are appreciated, and thank you! God Bless and whether online or in Lawn Chairs we will see you Sunday!

:  Here are the guidelines for Lawn Chair Worship:

  • The Praise Team and Pastor Brad will lead the service in front of the church bell (in front of the main doors to the sanctuary).  You can see from the picture! 
  • Some chairs will be provided but you are strongly encouraged to bring your own “Lawn Chairs.”
  • The parking spaces in front of the sanctuary & church bell will be available for sitting. Park accordingly to keep those spaces open.
  • You are STRONGLY encouraged to wear a facemask.  
  • Please keep social distancing at 6 ft and stay with your own family group.  
  • There will be no Passing the Peace time. (If you want to chat with your brothers and sisters in Christ you still can, either before or after the service.)
  • The church restrooms, buildings, and playground will be closed.
  • There will be no bulletins or hand-outs.  
  • A collection bowl will be set up for you to leave any offerings as you arrive or leave (as we normally have done for the 9am Worship Service).
  • There will be no Children’s Sermon, Children’s Church, or Sunday School afterward.
  • We will still have Prayer Time, but you are encouraged to text them to Pastor Brad or hand him a note. It can be hard to hear you in the parking lot when there's traffic...which is the norm here in Union County. 
  • If you or one of your household has a cough or is feeling ill, STAY HOME. You can watch the service online!
  • If you are uncomfortable in gathering, the worship service will continue to be broadcast online on YouTube and the link will be shared on Facebook and text message. 
  • Based on Conference rules and guidelines this will be how we worship for the long term. When the weather changes to cool we will adjust, but that's not for several months.
  • Also we have just activated online tithing! Just click the DONATE tab, as the church continues to share Christ in new ways.
  • Stay safe, stay well, check on your neighbors, and let's embrace creativity as we transform the church, be the Body of Christ in new, creative, and awesome ways! God Bless
