Operation Christmas Child 2014
 
Union Baptist Youth and their leaders worked three nights this year at Operation Christmas Child’s Distribution Center in Charlotte, NC. A total of 21 UBA churches attended during the dates of Nov. 28th, Dec. 4th and Dec. 5th working from 6-10 pm. The youth committee for the association organized this mission opportunity and served pizzas and drinks all three nights at the event. “This has been such a blessing to continue to see the Lord Bless us with such wonderful students and adults being a part of this great ministry year after year,” said Frank Casstevens, chair of the Youth Committee. The UBA had a total of 337 people to attend and received numerous thanks from the staff at the Processing Center. Again this year, we had churches that could not get in with the lower number of openings available and the committee is hopeful that next year we might look at a two night option with 250 or more each night. The Union Baptist Association would like to thank Coca-Cola of Charlotte for providing the drinks to us at no cost. The youth committee will meet on January 29th to work on plans for 2015 events.
