So the big day is finally here! We have been affectionately dubbing it the "Celebrate-All-The-Things Day," and we really do have so many different things we're celebrating Sunday.
At 9 AM, we will worship in our sanctuary or online, celebrating the 30th anniversary of the union of Trinity Congregational Church and Pecan Springs Christian Church to become United Christian Church of Austin. We will also be commissioning Meghan Dever as Youth Minister. Longtime member and friend Rev. David Owen will be bringing the message. Please note there will be no 11 AM service.
After our worship service, there will be a 30th anniversary slideshow to celebrate our history, followed by a congregational meeting. The congregational meeting will have several big voting items on which members may vote.
Finally, we'll adjourn outside for a picnic celebration, with bluegrass band Steel Betty and lawn games providing entertainment. If you didn't order food ahead of time through the church, please bring your own picnic along with your picnic blankets and lawn chairs to hang out and enjoy the fellowship, music, and burning of our mortgage! Yes, we've paid the big one off!
For so long friends, due to Covid, we missed celebrating anniversaries, weddings, birthday parties, holidays, and other celebrations. This will be the day we finally come together to celebrate again how far we've come over the past 30 years of union, the past 3 years of transition, and the past 2 years of Covid. We have so much to be thankful for United Christian Church of Austin, so join us Sunday as we celebrate all the things!
