The Secret Santa program at Grace United Methodist Church is now underway.  Over the last 28 years, Union County has unselfishly given children in our community the opportunity to experience the true meaning of the holiday.  The program, sponsored by the Upper Room and Young Adult Sunday School Classes at Grace United Methodist Church, has a goal of serving 280 children (ages 10 and under) this year.


We are asking citizens of our community to sponsor at least one child.  Parents have submitted a list of 3 gifts for each child and sponsors are asked to purchase at least one of the gifts from the list but may purchase all three.  In addition, we are asking that sponsors include an item in each package that relays the message of God’s love.


Our sponsorship drive will run through December 7, with the last day to return gifts on December 8.  If you would like to sponsor a child, please email us at or leave a message at 864-426-2776.  We truly appreciate the community’s generosity over the years of delivering packages to deserving children at Christmas!
