Upon conclusion we go to a local San Marco establishment for food and fellowship. The new series starts on September 9th.

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to our Crop Walk.  Whether you baked goodies, walked, or pledged, we all came together for a great cause, to fight hunger in our community and worldwide.  South Jax Pres raised $1409, and collectively, with all the other churches, we raised $3831 together.  Twenty five percent will stay here with UCOM. We had a great turnout with almost 100 participants from 6 different churches! Thank you again for your support!  Angela Lopez

WORSHIP REFLECTION – SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS: Share with others how God spoke to you in worship through the Word, the music, prayer or just being together with other believers. It may just be the medicine they need.

SERMON TEXTS: Dr. Bruce Hedgepeth’s sermon texts are available on our website; we hope these will be a blessing to you or someone you know. Pass it on. Click here to review.

BUSINESS NETWORKING GROUP: Each Thursday in May @ 9:00 a.m. in the Music Building.  $5 each meeting.  Contact Charlie Eddins for info, 904-687-4290

 Did you know that federal law greatly restricts the disclosure of patient information by hospitals? As a result, the pastor and church office may not know that a member of the church has been admitted to the hospital. If you are hospitalized and would like to notify the pastor, it is important that you (or a family member or friend) inform the church office as soon as possible, because we rely on you to let us know so that we can offer pastoral care and support! We would rather five people let us know rather than no one at all! Thank you for your help as we all join together to minister to the needs of our congregation!

Nursery Care is available during worship for the children ages 3 and under in the Church’s Parlor. Please take advantage of our staffed child care during the worship service.
