The public is invited to attend.
Community service set
A community prayer service, billed as “A Service of Unity and Hope,” is planned for Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at Union City First Baptist Church, located at 500 East Church St. There will be a community choir under the direction of Steve Russell, with practice set for 5:45 p.m.
The church extends an invitation to Goodyear employees/retirees and their families, union leadership, community business leaders, area mayors and council members, community church pastors and church leadership, local and state elected officials and everyone interested in the community.
Wallaces to speak
Missionaries Matt and Heather Wallace will be at Union City Cumberland Presbyterian Church at 631 East Church St. Sunday at 11 a.m. The Wallaces have been serving in Myanmar in southeast Asia through New Mission Systems International. They have returned to this country after three years in Myanmar to complete formal training at the graduate level in community development so they can return to that nation with new tools to assist people there. Their ministry involves a holistic understanding of the Good News through sustainable business and ministry models. Part of their vision is to help Christians begin small businesses that can help the church fund the rapid expansion of God’s kingdom taking place in Myanmar. These businesses will provide much needed local employment. Another part of the couple’s vision is to equip evangelists to teach basic development principals in hard-to-reach villages, thus spreading the Good News in word and deed.
The community is invited to attend to learn more about their ministry.
