South Union Christian Church
MISSIONS Ministry

To assist our church in teaching and practicing Matthew 28:19-20 NIV:
 "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."


Mission of the Month

Each month we select a different local mission, charity or ministry to support. We encourage our church attendees to bring in and donate items that are needed. A collection box is located in the foyer at all times to drop off items.
