Happy New Year!

What a year it has been!  In 2021, we have seen disciples made, new believers baptized, and relationships thrive. Our church has seen exponential growth and we have had the joy of settling in a new location and adding a second service.
As we enter into 2022, we look forward with excitement for all the work God is doing. We invite you to join us as we collectively strive to know Christ, declare His name, and make disciples.
2022 Bible Reading Plan
The primary way we know Jesus is through his word. The Word of God reveals to us the person of God- Jesus Christ, his accomplished work, and the grace he generously gives. We invite you to join us in reading through The Bible in 2022. Hard copies of the plan are available on Sunday mornings, or you can find a PDF version here.
Union Groups
Union groups meet around San Clemente throughout the week. Click here or visit the welcome table on Sunday for more information!
Bound
The 2022 books for our women's book club, Bound, have been announced! Find all of the books here, and get ahead on your reading!



Some 2021 Highlights:

Baptisms
In 2021, Union Church welcomed many new members, and we had the joy of seeing some of them baptized. Jesus is changing minds, hearts, and lives, and is using our local body to make disciples.

New Location
Over the last three and a half years, God has faithfully provided different locations for our church to gather. In June, we made the move San Clemente Christian School. That move has provided us with many new opportunities, including the launch of a second services in September.

Women's Ministry
By God’s grace, our women’s ministry continues to grow and flourish - between Parked, Parked on Base, Bound, and 1:1 discipleship, dozens of women of all ages and stages are being reached, loved, served, taught the bible, and discipled each week.

Union Kids
Union Kids is growing by leaps and bounds, with no end in sight. Each Sunday in 2021 a great multitude of kids checked in to UK - they had a blast, built little friendships, learned about Jesus, and were loved well. You can be sure of more kids, more fun, and more classrooms coming in 2022.

Young Adults Ministry
2021 was a year of Gospel fruit for our Young Adults ministry. We outgrew the home we were meeting in, saw new friendships formed, lives changed, people joining a church for the first time, and lots of discipling relationships. Young adults are being reached, learning the bible, engaging in community, and growing in grace. We can’t wait for 2022!

Youth Ministries
2021 brought the launch of both our high school and junior high ministries. It has been a joy to see The Lord work in the hearts of the young people at our church!

If you call Union Church your home, here are a few ways you can be involved:

pray

Ask Jesus for continued growth and grace. It is our desire to see many people saved and many disciples made. Ask the Holy Spirit to begin softening the hearts of those he will draw to our church. Pray for Spirit empowerment and vision for leadership. Pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest that he would build laborers at UC for his harvest (Matt. 9:38).

Serve

In this transition, we will be doubling everything we do on Sunday mornings. That includes: Union Kids, Set Up / Tear Down, Hospitality, Audio / Visual, & Prayer Team. We cannot do this effectively without the sacrificial service of our people. If UC is your home, and you have not entered into serving yet, we ask you to do so - there’s plenty of areas you are needed!

Give

When the church grows, financial growth  usually lags behind people growth. But more people means more ministries, more needs, and more staffing. As Jesus became “poor for our sake, so that by his poverty we might become rich” (2 Cor. 8:9) so he calls us as his people to live generously like him. Again, if UC is your home, we ask that you would give sacrificially and cheerfully (2 Cor. 9:6-9).

Invite

This is an incredibly opportunity to invite people to church. We all have people in our lives that need to meet Jesus and enter into vibrant, healthy community. Think of a few people you want to invite, begin praying for them, then make the ask and trust God with the results.
Thank you for being part of Union Church. Jesus has established an incredible Gospel witness in our city, and is using you to build his body, accomplish his mission, and advance his kingdom. We trust him to continue the work he has started among us.
