Scrip News

Thinking Ahead to the Holidays

It’s time for our biggest scrip order of the year and there will be a few changes.

First, since I never know the holiday bonuses until the Saturday before they start and I want Union Church to profit the most possible from this order, I’m asking that order forms be returned to me as soon as possible in November, but no later than Sunday, November 27th. I will monitor the specials and send our order out at the most profitable time. All orders will be available by December 1st, but if you need your order sooner, please let Carol know.

Order forms will be available in the back of the sanctuary and emailed by November 1st. Also, since shipping costs have risen twice this year, please include shipping costs of $0.50 per card or $5 for orders of 10 cards or more. Gift cards make welcome and easy presents at Christmastime. They also come in very handy for your personal gift shopping. So check out all the many merchants available at and start your holiday list.

For any questions, please contact Carol Turkett and thank you to everyone who continues to support this profitable program for Union Church.

Thanks to all who support this profitable fundraiser.

First Responders Honored at Union Church

Again this year, Union Church in Churchville honored First Responders at their outdoor service on Sunday, July17.

Attending were representatives of the Sherriff’s office and the Churchville Fire Department.  A Fire truck was there as well for the children and congregants to enjoy.  Represented also were two police officers who took part in the 300-mile bike ride to Washington DC in honor of all fallen officers.  Cheryl Fridley gave a brief talk about their experience among the thousands of officers who participated in this ride. 

These First Responders do not often get the attention and honor they deserve for their tireless efforts to serve their communities.  We thank them for their brave service and responding to calls so quickly.  Our wish is for their safety while they keep us safe. First Responders are our greatest heroes.  We salute and thank them for their service.  Do let them know that their commitment and dedication do not go unnoticed.

After the brief service, we had ice cream treats for all which were generously provided by Wegman’s of Chili-Paul.  We thank Wegmans for all they do for the communities surrounding them as well for the treats we enjoyed.

WOW!  Did you see the musical “Life of the Party”?  Kudos to Steve Valvano who pulled it together so beautifully within a week.  It was the culmination of a great week of VBS at Union Church.  Everyone, children and adults — from 3 to 83 — seemed to have a great experience.  From the start of listening to stories, singing songs, learning in the classroom, working at a craft, and of course, enjoying some snacks, to gathering together at the end with a song and prayer, it was a lot of fun and joy. It could not have happened without the cooperation and help by all of you – from teaching to bringing cookies for the reception. Thank you for contributing to the success of this year’s VBS.  We would love to hear your comments and feedback.

UNION CHURCH 2018 PARADE FLOAT – Smile, God Loves You! was the theme of our Parade Float this year.  We’re sure it brought smiles to many along the way.  Again we displayed the miniature church built by Harry Pimm many years ago.  Al Cullen drove the truck and pulled the trailer provided by Andy Fuller and we decorated it with balloons ad balloon fringe.  But the best attraction were the smiles, singing and kazoo playing by old and young sitting on the float and walking alongside with candy and bookmarks for the onlookers.  We hope you did not miss this joyous occasion.  If so, enjoy the pictures taken by several people.  So many thanks to all who helped in all kinds of ways to make this a successful contribution to the community.
