The mission of our Christian Education program is to promote life-long learning
and spiritual growth among all members of the congregation, under the
guidance of the Holy Scriptures, in a safe and caring environment.

Our children's program is open to children through 5th grade. We offer nursery care during our Sunday morning service for children 0-3 years old and a Sunday School program during the school year for children ages 4 through 5th grade. Children are invited to attend the first part of worship with their families, come up to the chancel for a brief Children's Message, then go upstairs to Sunday School for the remainder of the service.
Each year, the children present a Christmas Program - a retelling of the Christmas Story through drama and music - and help lead worship on Children's Sunday at the end of the year. All are welcome to participate!
The youth program at UCP is open to all 6th-12th graders. Our mission is to join in fellowship with one another, challenge each other as we grow in our faith, and go out and serve the world in Jesus' name. Our Youth Group meets on Sunday after each worship service at 11:30 AM. We hope you'll join us! For more information, please contact Leta Williams.
There are several opportunities for fellowship and spiritual growth throughout the year, including outreach projects, committee work, book clubs, and other social gatherings. To get involved, please contact Rev. Dr. Jimmy Reader.
UPCOMING FAMILY EVENTS
Come and join our church families and friends on Saturday, April 21st, for a fun evening in Howard Hall.
We’ll start with a pot luck supper at 6:00 PM, and then Richard Ashworth will present his annual picture show of people and events over the past year at UCP – with a few ‘oldies’ sprinkled in!
There’s no need to sign up. Just bring your own table setting and a dish to pass.
