The Mission Committee at The Union Church in Waban builds on the interdenominational spirit of our congregation and embraces a rich tradition of inclusiveness. We involve all segments of our multigenerational community in embodying the teachings of Christ, “let us love not in word or deed, but in truth and action.” – I John 3:18 The world at large presents overwhelming needs. Rather than feeling beleaguered, we look at such needs as an opportunity for enriching ourselves through service to others. Our congregation has chosen to support projects that focus on health and education at the local, national, and international levels.
International Partnerships Church-wide involvement provides for much greater depth of understanding and commitment to a particular mission outreach effort. As a church community we have made an ongoing commitment to the communities of our sister city San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, and to Lusaka, Zambia. Our relationship with the people of Nicaragua is well developed while we are just embarking on new relationships in Zambia. Our church supports a biannual mission trip to San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua.
Mission Outreach at The Union Church in Waban Includes Community! Individual church members also give of themselves in many ways…beautifying our building and environment, maintaining our historical and vital presence in Waban square, and helping keep our unique interdenominational place of worship alive. We also support established community service projects and outreach in which our church members already participate. Our internal mission, therefore, is to help all of us to establish a lifelong commitment to service to others.
…if you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday.
