Dear Union Church members,

Our UCC partners in Angola (2,800 congregations!) are realizing a long-term dream of opening a university in Dondi.  The Illinois conference of the UCC has agreed to fund the cost of printing 50,000 hymnals, which are being sold in Angola to church members, to raise $350,000 in startup costs for the university.  We would love your help towards the cost of these hymnals.  You can donate to cover the cost of one ($3), a few ($10) or many hymnals ($30, $100…).   If you’d like more information about this project, please visit

You can donate by:

In Angola, hymnals are owned individually and are a valued possession of church members.  We are asking all of the 250 churches in the Illinois conference to help cover the $150,000 cost of the hymnals, starting with our own Union Church congregation.

Thanks and blessings to you,

Union Church Angola Partnership Team
