There are several ministries that makeup the Union United Methodist Church. Each ministry is designed to serve God by helping in His children through education, compassion, and doing God's will.
Pastor Rod leads Bible Study every Monday at 6:30pm. From time to time, other members of the church will lead special Bible Studies. Hillary Luton will be leading a special Bible Study beginning in October that follows Season 2 of The Choses series. Season 1 was used for this special Bible Study in the Spring of 2021.
