Where the good news of Jesus Christ is proclaimed in truth and love.
Our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service included many elements to direct our hearts to the "reason for the season." The congregation sang the old favorite Christmas carols as the Christmas story was read from Luke 2 and Matthew 2 by Bill Monroe. Special music seasoned our time together with Angela Keith and Sophia Son presenting "What Child is This." Billy McCloud delighted everyone as he played his acoustic guitar and sang "Beautiful Star of Bethlehem."
This simple service reminded us that Jesus willingly came to this earth in humility, meek and lowly. Though He was rich, he became poor, that we, through His poverty might be rich. We love Him because He first loved us.
"He is not here, for He is Risen!"
Ladies Enjoy Hat Day
Valentine's Day at Wake Union consisted of a good meal, music and the ministry of the Word. Our evening began with a meal catered by City Barbeque consisting of beef brisket, pulled pork barbecue, along with mashed potatoes and green beans. Our ladies provided us with a smorgasbord of desserts to choose from.
Our music this year was provided by Mike Carswell (vocal and piano), his performance of old, familiar tunes had many singing along while nostalgia moved in hearts. During this time we enjoyed a slide show album of wedding photographs from our congregation titled, "The Way We Were."
The evening ended with a time in the Word with Pastor Jeff Mayfield, of Stony Hill Baptist Church. Jeff challenged us with the great truth that Christ has to be first in a marriage. Jeff and his wife Adrienne have nine children.

The Wake Union Choir presented the Christmas Cantata titled, O Holy Night on Sunday evening, Dec. 17th. The cantata had a familiar ring with some of the old favorites, but also told the Noel story with a little unexpected swing. Afterward, everyone enjoyed a time of fellowship around many Christmas goodies.
