Important Retreat on Feb 2-3

All Church “Retreat” for Before We Get Mars
Friday, February 2, 6:30p – 9pm
Saturday, February 3, 9:00a – 3pm

Lunch and childcare will be provided.

So, you know the vision right? With our Before We Get to Mars project Union Church is going to make a difference in the world, and challenge and grow our faith in the process. Before humans get to Mars, let’s make the Earth more like God wants it to be!

We warmly and strongly encourage everyone to come to our All Church Retreat on Friday and Saturday, February 2-3. This will be an important time of learning as the congregation decides what our one focus area of work will be. For each option we will have a panel of experts here to teach us more about working on that issue. The schedule is:

Hunger/Food Justice – Saturday, 2/3, 9:00 – 10:45 a.m.
