CHRISTMAS EVE at New Union
This Sunday, Christmas Eve, we offer two opportunities to join us in worship. We will have our regular worship service at 11:00 a.m., where we observe the fourth Sunday of Advent, with an inspiring message, scripture, prayer, song, and Christmas carols, and communion. Then, at 4:00 p.m., we will join together for our annual Christmas Eve Candle-light service of Lessons and Carols. All of our services are hybrid, with opportunity to attend in-person or online.
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.
In some ways we are that “little brown church in the wildwood” with a seating capacity of 60 or so persons, and a warm, intelligent, accepting set of individuals to worship alongside.
Our worship is traditional, using hymnals and some additional contemporary pieces. Worship lasts about an hour and includes times for prayer, scripture study, music, and a thoughtful message from our preacher.
Sundays at New Union
We currently meeting for worship on Sundays at 11:00 a.m. in our sanctuary, but also offer the opportunity to join us live online via Zoom. We invite any who are interested to come at 10:40 for fellowship and discussion.
Our congregation includes members who have been at the church forever and those who are much newer, and visitors. All are invited to join us.

Since our founding in 1834, this congregation has aligned itself with the Disciples of Christ, which grew up in the Kentucky area about the same time with a message of Christian unity, working together with people of other faiths, an open table, and liberty of theology and opinions. Many of our 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 the Lexington Theological Seminary, Transylvania University, or Midway 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 Q.
