Over the years, Union Presbyterian Church has been strongly involved in many different local and global mission projects. Below are some of the ONGOING programs Union is involved in-

Following the Spirit
  • During 2018, Union Church began a discernment process to discover new ways the church might live out it's Mission Statement- "Seeking to Know Christ and to Make Christ Known" because of changes to the demographics surrounding the church and a desire to reach out in more ways to our community. Please follow this link to read more about Union Church is following the guidance of the Holy Spirit in exciting new ways!


Local Missions
  • Service Sunday: Once a year, Union takes a Sunday off from “regular worship” to “be the church” in the community, providing service opportunities for all the ages.

  • Mission Grants/ Cradle to the Cross: This program was started originally from the Finance Committee to help encourage individuals with their personal stewardship of their time, finances, and gifting. Individuals partner with another to do a service project of their choosing in the community. Mission grant money is available for those teams.

  • Crisis Assistant Ministries: In May, Union collects non-perishable goods for CAM (a local food bank). The children of the church "sell" pre-purchased goods to church members at our own “Loaves and Fishes” grocery store.

  • School Tool Collection: Each fall, Union works with other area churches to collect school supplies for elementary school students in the area who are in need.

  • The Blessing Box: Union has set up a small collection and distribution box next to Forrestview High School to provide food and other nonperishables for those in need in the community.

  • The Trail: Union has put in a community walking trail that loops behind the church and heads toward Forrestview High School. Click here to learn more about the trail and the prayer guides we have to use on the trail (or at home).

  • 5 Cent a Meal: Each month Union has a special offering to give toward local Christian agencies that work to fight the problem of hunger. Our giving goes toward, Crisis Assistant Ministries, Salvation Army, and our Blessing Box.

  • Quarterly Giving: Each quarter Union gives a substantial gift to a mission-oriented ministry in need. We use this as an opportunity to highlight what that ministry does for the congregation. In 2023, Our Mission giving was used to support Gaston Street Ministry, The Cathy Mary Cloninger Center, Least of These Carolinas, and The Frontier Fellowship.

  • Angel Tree: Each year at Christmas we collect gifts for children in need in the community.

Global Mission
  • Malawi: Union supports work in the areas of health care and children’s education in Nkhoma, Malawi, one of the poorest countries in Africa. The hospital in Nkhoma and its 9 satellite rural clinics support 5 full-time doctors who serve 350,000 people. Ebenezer School was started initially to help retain staff with children at the hospital. It is now one of the outstanding schools for local Malawians.
