Sunday Evenings: Worship + Food + Fellowship

Although young adults can be found at various service times at UPC, we tend to gravitate towards the 5pm service. Join us weekly for our 5pm service, dinner upstairs in Larson Hall, and fellowship at 7:30pm! Our Facebook page is up-to-date with details!



Puerto Rico Vision Team 

UPC is sending a team of young adults this March to build relationships with our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of a devastating hurricane.  This is the beginning of a 3-5 year partnership with the church in San Juan, with more mission trip opportunities to come.  Want to donate towards disaster relief supplies? We are hoping to raise $1250 to go towards food, water, and other critical relief supplies.
