Belleville Union to celebrate its sanctuary renovation
Belleville Union UMC will celebrate the completion of its sanctuary renovation May 1 at 2 p.m.
In 1998, the Union UMC congregation, after prayerful study, made a major decision to stay in downtown Belleville, instead of fleeing to the outskirts. The church developed a long-range plan than included new offices, day care, fellowship hall, chapel, food pantry which was completed in 2004 with an addition to the McKinley Christian Center. By God working through the thankful hearts of our congregation, the church has already committed nearly $7 million in funds since 1998 to make the vision a reality—and they want everyone to share in the celebration of God’s leadership and faithfulness.
