Living out our values

Our mission and vision

The Union Combined Parish nurtures followers of Jesus Christ who transform the world through love, justice, and service.


At Union, we're family! Members, worshippers, and guests experience Union as a spiritual home grounded in the unconditional love of God. Someone who is part of Union will be transformed personally and empowered to do good in the community.

Christ's Gospel of Liberation

"Jesus said: 'The Spirit of our God is upon me because the Most High has anointed me to bring Good News to those who are poor. God has sent me to proclaim liberty to those held captive, to cast vision for those who want to perceive God's new thing, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim the year of our God's favor.'" Luke 4:18-19

Transformative Worship
