Fulfilling Christ’s Great Commission
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
Union Church has a long history of supporting missionaries locally and internationally and we commit 22% of general giving to support a variety of missionaries.
Union’s Mission Partners
2020 has been an unusual year for our missionaries in Japan, Far East, India, the Middle East, Peru, Africa, and Mexico. Five Wycliffe Bible translators we support have ministered throughout the world using their skills in technology. Locally, we continue to serve City Team Ministries, Help One Child, Young Life, Real Options, the Valley Med Chaplain, and Community Services Agency of Los Altos and Mountain View with both monetary and volunteer support. We also contribute to four experienced and effective college/university ministries.
Union has been an anchor church in continuing our support of our missionaries and groups in spite of the virus’
