Update from the President of Union Gospel Press


April 2, 2020


Dear customers of Union Gospel Press,


 The governor of Ohio has ordered that only essential businesses are to be open.  The government does not consider us an essential business.  Unfortunately, we are not able to process the orders that have been mailed in, called in, or done on the website because our employees have been ordered to stay home.  Hopefully, we can return on May 4, 2020.  If so, we can get your summer order to you before June 1, 2020.  We will see if the stay home order goes beyond the May 4, 2020 goal.


I want to assure you that as soon as we are allowed to go back to work that we will process those orders as soon as possible.


We as well as you are extremely frustrated now but realize we must obey the powers that be according to Romans 13.


Let’s all pray for each other during this trying time.  I would like to remind you of what God’s Word says.  “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth be removed and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.”  To many it seems that drastic at the present moment.  Later in the chapter in verses 10-11, it says, “Be still and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” THE LORD OF HOSTS IS WITH US; THE GOD OF JACOB IS OUR REFUGE.”


Yours in Christ,



David E. Rowland, President
