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
Join us as we welcome Transformed! Traveling Drama Ministries from Eastern University - right outside of Philadelphia, PA! The all-ages, gospel-centered show will be on Friday March 2nd at 7:00PM and will include improvisation, skits, monologues, testimony, worship, and more. There will be a free will offering taken up to support the group's ministry, but there is no charge for the show! Interested in joining us for dinner beforehand as well? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more!
Our annual UCP Bowling Party will be at Noon on Saturday March 24th at Bowl-a-Roll on Jefferson Road. For the next few Sundays, we’ll be taking sign-ups in Howard Hall after the worship service, so stop by and add yourself or your family to the list. The cost will be $11 per person, which includes the bowling, pizza and soda; spectators can also have pizza for $1.
This event is always great fun and is enjoyed by all ages from pre-schoolers (with a chute) to seniors (unfortunately without a chute!) We hope to see you soon for the sign up. If you have any questions, please call Donella (381-2189).
