Uniting Church & Family in the Great Commission

Discover God’s mission for your family & church to spread the Gospel.

You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house …
