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.
Read more about our educational offerings for children, youth, and adults below.
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 Pageant - 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!
COMING UP: We are exploring the season after Pentecost with a curriculum adapted for multiple learning styles. Because our Sunday School lessons line up with the content of Sunday morning worship and sermons, families are able to grow in faith together as they learn from scripture side by side. Join us this Sunday as we take the next step in our walk together!
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 evenings from 6PM through 8PM. We hope you'll join us! For more information, please contact Leta Williams.
COMING UP: Our first youth meeting for the 2017-2018 school year will commence on October 1st!
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.
