WHO WE ARE...
We are an interdenominational church grounded in the Protestant tradition of Christianity.
We strive to:
* give loving service to all people,

No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here!
We provide a dinner for the residents of the Rutland Dismas House on the 1st Wednesday of every month. The meal usually includes a main dish, vegetable or salad, rolls or bread, and a dessert for around 8-10 people. Sharing the food and conversation around the table with the residents and a staff member is very much appreciated; or, if you aren't able to stay, your dish can easily be dropped off on the Dismas House back porch by 5:30 PM. If you would like to provide a dish for the meal, please contact the church at email@example.com the week before.
Be sure to check the CHURCH NEWSLETTER and CALENDAR for details of events going on at Union Church. We wouldn't want you to miss anything!

Join us for a Lenten Book Study on the five Wednesdays in March beginning March 1st. Our study will be on The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Our discussion of this fascinating read will last about an hour. You can purchase the book at local bookstores or online, or check it out at your local library. If you need assistance with obtaining the book, please contact Pastor Jenei. We’ll gather at 6:30 PM in the Sanctuary for our first meeting. The next four Wednesday evening meetings will be in the Parish House.
Do you like to sew? Do you enjoy chatting, laughing, and learning something new? The UCP Quilters have a number of possible projects to work on. No matter your experience or skill level, we’d love to have you join us. Check back here for the date of our next gathering. We may work on fidget quilts, or comfort quilts, or maybe another runner for the communion table. All are welcome!
