Hello, friends and members of UIF!
Wednesday, December 2 – 11am Midweek Advent Service “Praying with the Saints,” featuring some of the December saints day commemorations (live on Facebook – you can watch it later in the day if that works better for you).
If you wish to learn more about Rachel (MIC student) and Nathi’s story, you can read the Trib article here Or watch the NBC story here At this point, there is nothing that can be done about his surrendered visitor visa (it was legal, but unjust), but Rachel plans to travel to see Nathi for a couple weeks at Christmas. They are working toward an official fiancé visa soon.
Our 11am in person service is currently suspended during the Stay at Home Advisory. We will not meet again for In Person worship until at least January 2021 (date to be determined later).
Worship with us virtually through livestream on Sunday mornings at 9:30am on Facebook (www.facebook.com/uiflc) OR YouTube at our UIFLC channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC48ZorvqlmodW7DKTSofJ3A). Worship plan for 12/6/2020 attached. UIF Sunday school is offered virtually through email/YouTube.
After virtual worship (approximately 10:30am), find us at a ZOOM Virtual Coffee Hour https://us02web.zoom.us/j/314512003?pwd=YklNQnlJN1Z6ckFYb2RVYkhmdEZFdz09
