Sunday Worship 10:30 am - In person, and online:
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.
Adult Education Forums:
December 3rd – HOPE: On this Sunday, we light the first Advent candle. To prepare for some of the Advent activities we will be discussing in worship, we will focus on some activities that help us prepare for this season of waiting by thoughtfully discussing Hope and how we can search for ways to be RESTORED. In addition to discussing Psalm 80:1-17, 17-19, we’ll watch a thoughtful Advent video and discuss the Japanese art form of Kintsugi.
December 10th – PEACE: The second Sunday of Advent focuses on Peace. In this forum session, we’ll have discussions focused around Peace and COMFORT. In addition to discussing Isaiah 40:1-11, we will watch another thoughtful Advent presentation on video and discuss the difference between peace and comfort.
December 17th – JOY and LOVE: During our final forum of Advent, we will discuss the two remaining themes of Joy and Love. In addition to discussing Luke 1:46b-55 and Luke 1:26-38, we’ll watch another thoughtful video, discuss the imagery around doves, stars and rainbows, and the relationship between Love and RESOLVE.

Saturday Meditation Group online (most) 1st Saturdays 10 am
Practiced for centuries and is well-known for its many benefits, meditation can reduce stress, lower blood pressure, reduce anxiety, increase compassion, and more! UPUCC is carrying on this ancient practice- each first Saturday of the month at 10 am, for one hour. We enjoy this time out from busy-ness to focus and redirect our minds, and invite you to come join us. Absolutely no experience required. Contact Joanne Kennedy Frazer email@example.com if you would like to be part of this monthly group.

- to be respectful of the diversity of choices made by individuals within the Congregation
- encouraging any who have not yet taken full advantage of vaccinations to do so
- and requesting that any who have been exposed to Covid first test negative before returning to church.
At the Coordinating Council’s October 20, 2022 meeting, after a lengthy discussion while reviewing the Covenant Partner Surveys, a decision was made to move to ‘masks optional.' We do so reminding all:
Should a significant surge in cases occur in the area, we will move to ‘masks recommended.’
We will continue to offer streaming options for any who feel too compromised to return to in-person worship.
Many thanks to all who participated in the recent survey which allowed us to choose policies that best reflect the will of the entire Congregation.
