Union Church Kicks off Christmas Season

The Community Christmas Program at the Historic Union Church kicks off the Christmas season for many people around the middle Georgia area and this year the Friends of the Union Church have put together a musical program that is sure to impress.

Following a tradition set 35 years ago by Wilkinson County 4-H, the program is traditionally held the Sunday following Thanksgiving and brings residents from throughout the county together to celebrate the joys of Christmas. This year the Community Christmas Program is Sunday, December 1, at 6 p.m. with dessert and fellowship at the Blue Goose following the lighting of the tree.

One of the best parts of the program is the incredible selection of music. This year Jordan Stream Church Choir, the Gordon Methodists Unity Hand Bell Choir a a few others are ringing and singing in the Christmas spirit.

Please mark your calendars and plan to attend the Community Christmas program at the Union Church. The Church is located in the middle of Irwinton between Hwy 57 and old 441. Parking is along the street and in the back of the church. There is a handicapped ramp available.
