How Can I Worship Virtually?
We would love for you to join our virtual worship. All worship is currently virtual, and it is held via Zoom at 10:30AM Eastern each Sunday morning. Please visit our Events Calendar for event information and links.
Are There Other Events I Can Attend, In Addition To Sunday Worship?
The FAQs below refer to in-person worship, which we look forward to restarting again when it is safe. In the meantime, please join us virtually!
What Do I Do When I Arrive for Worship?
There will be a greeter or two inside the main entrance who will provide directions, information and a nametag. Usually there are snacks and coffee and tea in the atrium as well. (Lots of people mingle and hangout here.) As you enter the worship space, an usher will provide you with a worship bulletin. You may sit anywhere you like.
What is Appropriate Attire for Worship?
We are very much a "come as you are" congregation. Many of us wear jeans or other casual clothing for worship.
What About Children?
We provide a professional nursery for infants and toddlers. Children through 5th grade are included in the first portion of worship and then dismissed to special classes after a "Children's Moment." For more information about our Children's Ministry, click here.
Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month. At Umstead Park UCC, all are welcome to Christ’s table. Communion is offered in a traditional manner, by intinction, during which worshippers who choose walk to a communion station take a piece of the bread and dip it in the cup. The cup contains juice.
