Simple Christmas | putting connection over the craze
Simple Christmas, December 1–January 5
If you were to have a truly meaningful holiday season this year, what would it look like? If it includes eggnog, tinsel, traffic jams, maxing the credit, and the annual politics talk with uncle Bob… more power to you! But, on the other hand, if you might prefer a little less hype and a little more substance, what would it look like to reclaim the deeper meaning of Christmas? What if we put serving over shopping, resting over rushing, giving over getting, presence over presents, and hoping over wishing? Let's join together this year for a 'simple Christmas.' Maybe if we do, we'll begin the new year a little more connected. To each other, to a better world, and to the one whose birth we celebrate.

Sunday Worship Times

Come and enjoy singing your favorite hymns, with music led by choir and pipe organ. Our 70-voice Cathedral Choir sings most Sundays September through June. Other music groups occasionally participate, such as our brass ensemble, woodwind group and string ensemble. Our Reuter pipe organ with 4 manuals and 70 stops (93 ranks) adds a magnificent dimension to our traditional worship services.
10am & 5pm
Come as you are and experience our contemporary services that incorporate current worship music and a more relaxed style. Our contemporary worship team uses guitars, bass, drums, and keyboard instruments to support the vocal ensemble who lead us in worship.
Watch Live Online
8:30am & 10am
Between morning services and after the 5pm service, join us in Larson Hall for food and a time for fellowship. This is a long-standing tradition at UPC. If you still feel new to UPC or you're visiting with us for the first time, it's a great place to meet people! There is no meal following the 11:45am service, so come early and join us just before the service.
Families are always welcome to worship together in the Sanctuary. The service can also be viewed on closed-circuit TV in Knox Family Room, just outside the Sanctuary.
Programs for Children
Age-related classrooms are on the second and third floors of the building. If you're new or visiting with us, stop by the Connect table in the foyer (narthex) for more information, and be sure to visit upc.org/kids.
