Are you looking for a church that is large enough to support a community, but small enough that you cannot help but feel at home the minute you walk through the doors?

Union UMC is a traditional church, with generations of local families who relish in the small town feel. Union UMC lies in the middle of the Piedmont region of North Carolina. 

This beautiful sandhills area is only a few short hours from Mountains and Ocean, and a short distance from history, and culture. The church sits near the borders of Lillington, Sanford, and Spring Lake, encouraging residents from multiple communities to make Union home. 

The traditional services enjoy the old Methodist hymns, while including modern music into the mix. If you are looking for a church wrapped in traditional values and encouraging members, look no further. 

Guests are always welcome. 

A church rich in Faith.
