UPCOMING FAMILY EVENTS
INTERGENERATIONAL CHRISTMAS PROGRAM
Join us on Sunday, December 16 for our annual Christmas program! We will feature people of all ages for a thought-provoking and memorable performance!
Our program this year is called “The Christmas Experience,” and it will take us through four different scenes that might have happened around Christmas time! Following the performance, join us in Howard Hall for a Christmas cookies, tea, and treats!
If you are a part of the production and are looking for information about practices and performance, please email Leta!
We’re also excited to have learning opportunities available to all ages in a few months. Stay on the lookout for those!
NURSERY, SUNDAY SCHOOL, AND MORE
Are you interested in serving in our Christian Education program? We have several volunteer opportunities available throughout the year. Please contact Leta Williams, our Director of Christian Education, or Jennifer Cranch, our Christian Education Chair, if you'd like to become involved.
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 gatherings. To get involved, please contact Rev. Dr. Jimmy Reader.
