Contact Us at 864-427-1266 or mail@graceunion.org

 

Welcome to Grace…a loving family inviting everyone to come & experience God’s love fresh & new. Join us and let’s share the gospel in life as we serve our community.

 

Mission:

To love God completely and to serve Jesus Christ unselfishly

 

Grace is a Safe Sanctuary Church

If Everyone at Grace Served Like Me, What Kind of Church Would This Church Be?

 

Looking ahead at GREAT THINGS FOR GRACE!

Please let the church office know if you ever need transportation to an event!

 

Salkehatchie Summer Service Union Camp 

Grace welcomes all the leaders and campers joining us today from the Salkehatchie Summer Service Union Camp. Rev. John Culp began this ministry to help those less fortunate and to enrich the lives of the campers. Campers and leaders will have pictures taken at the front of the church before the luncheon provided by the Adults Sunday School Class. The church office will be open Monday through Friday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM to accommodate any needs of the campers and leaders.

Guest at the Pulpit 

Reverend John Culp will be our guest speaker at the pulpit Sunday, June 19, 2022 and will deliver our sermon. Rev. Culp grew up in Union and Grace UMC was his home church. His family has had long ties with Grace. When the church was being built, Benjamin Dudley Culp furnished the granite rock free of charge from his own private quarry. Thus, the church gave him the privilege of naming our church. He chose GRACE, saying, “she shall be called Grace and may she never fall from grace.” How fitting that Rev. Culp will be here on Sunday. He began Salkehatchie Summer Service over 40 years ago and has been a definitive reason for Salkehatchie’s success over the years. Please welcome Rev. John Culp when you have an opportunity to do so.

Graduate Sunday was May 22, 2022

On Sunday, May 22, 2022, we will observe Graduate Sunday.  We plan to honor four Union County High School graduates: Maggie Berry, Mary Kathryn James, Alle Owens, and Carson Valentine.  Four college graduates include Grant Harris, Bailey Long, Patrick Long, and Will Long.  We will also honor three post-graduates: Blake Berry, Anna Kelly Heatherly, and Jack James.  These proud graduates will receive Bibles or devotional books during our worship service.  We hope to see everyone there!

 

Church Directory Planning

Please plan to have your family picture made for the new online church directory.  There are currently four Sundays planned right after church so please select a date and sign up on the sheets available during the service or in the church office.  You can also contact the church office to sign up for a time and date. We are looking forward to this opportunity to update our directory and encourage all families to participate.

 

EPWORTH IS OUR MINISTRY!

    Did you know that in the last year Epworth Children's Home served over 1,000 children and families? Each of these children has this opportunity because of United Methodist churches in South Carolina who embrace and provide for this ministry in support of the children and families in our state. We will participate in the annual Mother's Day Offering was on Sunday May 8th, 2022 to benefit the children who call Epworth home, as well as each child and family touched by Epworth's ministries. Please be in prayerful consideration of what God is calling you to give to this valuable and life changing ministry.  For more information about Epworth Children's Home, visit them online at www.epworthchildrenshome.org.

 

Blessing Boxes We now have two Blessing Boxes! They are both being frequently visited so please bring your donations to place in the Blessing Box donation containers at church entrances or to the church office. Please help us keep these boxes supplied for our community members in need.

 

Nursing Homes Project Our first donations of Bingo Prizes went to Heartland and Ellen Sagar Nursing Homes. The (employees and the residents were thrilled! Please continue to support this ministry!

 

Interpretive DanceWe are excited for our first Princesses of the King interpretive dance performance.  Hazel Lawson, Ember Love, and Lane Wagner have been practicing weekly with Mrs. Vickie Phillips, assisted by Trinity Smith.  We appreciate Vickie beginning this new ministry.
