WELCOME TO UNION CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH
No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. We worship in God’s house and all of God’s children are welcome here. God’s communion table is open, not closed. We advocate justice for all and extend hospitality as a sign of God’s inclusive love.
Our church’s mission is to change lives — individually, systemically and globally and we work to make transformation possible, but trust in God’s grace. Churches must be places of vitality in worship, learning and advocacy. Why? ♥Because God is still speaking.♥

HELPING OUR NEIGHBORS
Several churches have joined together to provide food for families who need a little extra. Some of this food is also provided by businesses as well as individuals. Residents in the Riga area are welcome to come to Union Church, 14 N. Main Street in Churchville, to pick up a box of nutritious food for their families. Distribution is made every third Tuesday of each month between 4 and 5 pm. Drive into the church parking lot and follow the signs. If you know of any in need, please inform them of this program.

Dog Therapy Ministry
Our Dog Therapy Ministry began on September 19, 2021, when Jenn Faro brought Pinot, an adorable black lab, to our Pet Blessing Service to be blessed. Pinot was blessed by Pastor Brad as she launched her ministry to bring comfort and joy to those who are housebound or are unable to attend services. Pinot is a Certified Therapy dog and Jenn is a warm and lovely young woman who has bonded with Pinot and wants to share her gentle and kind ways with others. If you need a visit or know of someone who cannot attend services or is experiencing difficulty of any kind, please call the church office and arrangements will be made for Jenn to bring Pinot to you and introduce you to her for a friendly visit. No cost is involved but smiles are always welcomed.
Pet Blessing Service Did you miss our Pet Blessing service on September 19th? What a wonderful time of praise for all of God’s creatures. It brought smiles and joy to everyone in attendance. We had 12 dogs that were blessed by Pastor Brad, 17 that were prayed for but were not able to be there, and 5 that were no longer with us. Even a stuffed elephant was given prayer that it would bless its young owner. A highlight of the service was Pinot who was blessed as she begins her Dog Therapy Ministry to those who need comfort and joy. If you know of someone who wants a visit from Pinot, please contact Maryjane who will direct you to Jen Faro who now begins this ministry. (see pics below)
