Launch Out Vision Sunday

Mark your calendar for August 13, as we come together for a combined all-UALC service at Mill Run as we celebrate how God has moved through the last 60 years of our church’s history, give our thanks as He continues to bless and use our church today, and praise Him for the vision He has revealed to us for the future. We are excited to worship Him as ONE CHURCH, and hope you’ll pray as we prepare to come together in unity. Following the 10:30 am service at the Mill Run Amphitheater, we will come together for our “Back At It” End-of-Summer Celebration! Find all the details here.
