We are glad you have stopped by this internet site to learn more about us.
New Union Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a hallowed place of simple beauty, located just inside Woodford County on scenic Old Frankfort Pike. It is a pleasant and easy drive from Versailles, Lexington, Frankfort, Midway and southern Scott County.
Sundays at New Union
Beginning Sunday, March 15, 2020 until further notice, New Union Christian Church’s building will be closed, including for Sunday worship.
This is in recognition of the need to do our part to reduce community spread of the Coronavirus, with wholehearted support of the Governor’s recommendation for churches to take this action, then think carefully through when and how to open for onsite woship once again.
However, keep in mind that the church is the people, not a building, and so church itself is anything BUT cancelled--we are just needing to think outside the box. Each Sunday we will worship with link to a 30-minute worship video with hymns, prayer, communion, and sermon.
Afterwards at 11:00, we will meet online by Zoom to share special prayer requests, greetings, and short worship time with hymns, prayer, meditation, and communion. Check your email for the link, or contact Pastor Deb Phelps at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We are to share our light in this difficult time. If you are a visitor to New Union please leave a message for Deb Phelps and we will get back with you with more information as to how you can join us in worship and fellowship. Peace and grace to you all. –Pastor Deb Phelps
When we are meeting onsite:
The regular worship service is held every Sunday at 11:00 a.m. – noon. The format is traditional, yet participatory, and always pertinent to modern life. We encourage families to participate together, yet as the parents would like, take advantage of having a nurturing children’s program with childcare and children’s programming available for ages 0-5 years.
On the first Sunday of every month, we have a fellowship time at 10:15 a.m. in our Friendship Hall (church basement area) and would love to welcome visitors and offer this as a good time to get acquainted with our members and faithful friends. For 183 years, this congregation has aligned itself with the progressive wing of Protestant Christianity. Many of its pastors across its long history have been among the best educated and thoughtful leaders of the denomination, and the majority of these ministers have also had an academic affiliation with either the Lexington Theological Seminary or Transylvania University.
New Union offers members and friends a thoughtful and socially engaged approach to Christian living. Our church offers simplicity in its government and program; strong community within a caring fellowship; hospitality to all persons; and opportunities for people of all ages to grow in faith and discipleship.
You will not find a paved parking lot or a choir with many voices. You will not have to leave your brain at the doorway. You will not be burdened with committees and meetings. You will find a welcoming group of people of a breadth of ages and from a variety of walks in life. People who have joined this church in recent years have come from a variety of religious backgrounds, or have come to us with no specific religious roots. Some of our members’ families have been members here for several generations.
Come see for yourself what life in a small country church can do for your faith journey and your family.
In our commitment to welcome all people as we believe Christ would welcome them, our members at New Union Christian Church have voted to be designated an Open and Affirming Congregation and a member of the GLAD ( Gay, Lesbian Affirming Disciples) Alliance.
