What's Happening at Union Hill Church:

Upcoming church and community events are posted on this page, along with scheduled times for special worship services. For a complete and current list of events with more information, see our church calendar or download our October Newsletter.

Mens Ministy will meet on Saturday mornings 10/14 and 10/28 from 8:30am-9:30am.

Welcome Pastor Tim
It’s official! Tim Clarkson has begun his call to Ministry here at Union Hill! He has spent this past week setting up his office in the manse. We have decided to give him some much needed space there and we hope that in the future we may be able to use the main level of the house for Committee meetings, Youth Group, Bible Studies, etc. We also plan to do some updating in the basement area in the near future. Tim spent this week getting to know Denville! Billy and MaryAnn graciously took him around town to meet several town officials, the Chaplain at St. Clare’s and of course the people of Denville Dairy! Tim is so excited to begin his Ministry and we are excited to have him here! We hope you can join us on Sunday to celebrate his Ordination and Installation.

Sunday School began on September 17th with an amusement park theme. There was an obstacle course,
games, and amusement park type food! Our youngest students will continue with that theme for several weeks
and our older students will have a Survivor themed curriculum! Seniors Caleb Tomkins, Christopher Baresh & Timmy Rozansky will be teaching the 5th – 10th graders. Pastor Tim’s daughter, Kate will be teaching the K-3rd grade students. Our sitters, Julia and Jenna, will pitch in with the younger students as needed.
Our first Family Fellowship Worship Service is scheduled for October. The theme this year is “Seasons of the Church.” If you feel called to help with Christian Education and Sunday School in 2017/18 please email the church and let us know! We can use substitutes, teachers, and people willing to assist with a onetime project. We can use fresh ideas!

Confirmation Class will be held this year and those who are eligible will be contacted via email as we get closer to the start date. We will be confirming 8th graders and up. If you are interested in learning more, please email the church. The philosophy at Union Hill has always been that this is a learning experience and a time to explore one’s faith. No one who participates needs to feel pressured to join the church at the end of the experience. The students will once again be seeking Covenant Partners to walk alongside them in the journey. Please pray about whether or not you would be willing if you are asked. If you are asked and feel you cannot take on the commitment, please let them down gently! Covenant Partners meet with their Confirmand about once per month throughout the school year and are there for them at the dinner celebration and the worship service on the final weekend. They are to serve as their advocate and a liaison between the youth and the pastor if needed.

Operation Christmas Child Project 2017
It’s that time again! Jane Sassaman will once again coordinate the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox collection. Due to customs regulations, there are new rules on what can go in the boxes this year. A donation box is in the narthex and we will also accept monetary donations (make checks out to UHPC). For information about packing a box and what can go inside, please see this www.samaritanspurse.org

Songs, Guitars and More…
Do you have an interest in getting together with friends to sing, play an instrument or both? Perhaps you did it back when you were a student, not worrying about getting it perfect, and selecting pieces without thinking about the next lesson. We’ve been getting together casually to sing and play guitar, marimba, recorder and other instruments. You don’t need to be a performer – join us to enjoy fellowship with music. If you are interested, please contact j_kibe@hotmail.com.

Youth Group will meet on Sunday, September 10th from 6:30 – 8:30 PM in Cosman Hall. Please bring $5 for pizza and a beverage to add to our “pantry.”
