Serve

“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

Mark 10:45

UPC has a variety of service opportunities on multiple different levels. Whether it’s going global, reaching out to our neighborhood, or showing up a little earlier to help set up on Sundays, we welcome everyone who feels led to serve together with us.

Church

“Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.”

1 Corinthians 12:12

Do you enjoy music, working with children, doing tech support, or setting up behind the scenes? We have a variety of opportunities and encourage you to find your role in the church body.
