UPUCC Continues 'Hybrid' Worship (In-Person and Online as well!) 

  • Don your masks and ‘join in’ for our joyful steps toward ‘normalcy’!
  • As an unabashedly liberal group, in this instance we will move more cautiously, asking all present to wear masks while indoors. The service is also live- streamed to allow all to participate.

Sunday 10:30 am Worship Zoom link:

  As always, children are welcome in worship. Families come to worship together. After the Children's Moment, children and adult leaders enjoy a brief lesson together, then dismiss to build healthy friendships in outdoor play (or indoors, depending on the weather).

Youth Group meets most Sundays at 12 pm. Contact tyler@upucc.org for details.
