Union Church

Peace and presence by the sea…

Union Church is an interdenominational Christian church that welcomes those who wish to journey with us as we seek to receive and follow God’s sacred spirit and the ethical teachings of Jesus Christ. We are an evolving community of faith that seeks to reflect the love and compassion of God through our conduct. We follow the teaching of Jesus to love God, neighbor, and self. We have reverence for Earth and all living creatures. We are a worshiping community that gathers to give thanks and to celebrate the Holy Presence of God in all things. We welcome all visitors.

Worship Service is at 9:30am June through September, 10:00am October through May.


Dear Friends,

During this time of crisis in our nation and across the globe, we gather in spirit, if not in person, as we pray for all who are affected at this time. Our hearts go out to those who are seriously ill and to those who have lost loved ones because of the Coronavirus. For the present time, we have suspended all of our Services until we are confident that the crisis has passed. We are especially sorry that we have had to postpone the Services of Church members and friends, Tom Bancroft, Matt Poftak, and Vickie Breault. We invite your prayers for their families and friends and will let you know once these have been rescheduled.

We are praying for all of the heroic doctors and nurses, caretakers and cleaners, first responders and grocery workers, all of whom are doing such important work to save lives and to provide for the necessities of life while we take time to be apart from one another for the sake of all. We also pray for the amazing scientists and medical researchers who are working around the clock to develop treatments and an immunization. May they be guided by the inspiration of our God.

I send words of comfort and peace to all. We are in this together and the God of love, of compassion, and of comfort is walking with us at this time. May the deep peace of Christ be with you and all those you love in the days ahead. May you find ways to care for yourself and to reach out to neighbors and loved ones as we all watch out for one another and support one another in love and faith.

Blessings and peace,
Paula

The Examen

“As we began the Lenten Season, the short film, The Examen, was shown at church on the first Sunday in March, to invite people into a time of reflection and gratitude, walking with God and inviting God into all of the moments of our days. We invite folks to take the time to view the film which is under 12 minutes and see what it might offer to your Lenten Journey.”
