On Sunday, July 12th, several members and friends of United Presbyterian Church joined other area churches for a “REACH OUT” day providing community service in several areas around town.  Some from UP stained picnic tables on the courthouse lawn while others pulled weeds around the public library.  What a way to be the hands and feet of Christ!

 

On Sunday, October 26th, the church congregation enjoyed a delicious potluck lunch followed by an informative presentation by Ben Ellis as he shared his experiences of his Rotary-sponsored study abroad in Austria.  Ben had numerous pictures and stories of his adventures last year.  Thank you, Ben!

 

Happy 98th birthday to UP’s YOUNGEST member, Charles Korte! A special celebration was held in his honor after worship on September 14th. God bless you!

 

 

 

 

 

Many enjoyed “Build It & Split It!”, this year’s ice cream social, that was held on Sunday, August 24th, at the home of David & Jill Hook.  A mound of ice cream in a shallow tote began the fun.  As friends arrive, they were given a pourable container of topping to make the ice cream delicacy! It was a perfect afternoon of Christian fellowship!

           

            

     

Take me out to the ballgame!  There was a special welcome to friends from United Presbyterian Church at the Iowa Cubs game on Saturday, August 16th!  It was a great night to support this favorite past time!

            

                    

United Presbyterian Church friends enjoyed a time of Christian fellowship at Maytag Park in Newton on Sunday, July 20, 2014.  It was an afternoon of fun, games, and relaxation followed by a potluck!
