Sent to Rome
Sent to Rome, August 18–September 15
God has a mission. As the Bible tells the story, the mission of God runs like a sharp vector through the dimensions of time and space. It's a mission, St. Paul tells us, that God fulfills by becoming a man, Jesus Christ. And his mission is justice. To set the world right. To set it all in right relationship with its maker and to fulfill the maker's good purposes for all that is made. Towards this end God sent the man. And then God sent women and men. As witnesses and as participants. St. Paul writes to growing communities who gathered in houses across the neighborhoods of the imperial capital. He writes about the man and the houses. The Epistle to the Romans is an invitation to join. The mission continues today…
Starting Next Week
Next Door | Neighborhood Circles on Mission with Jesus
Next Door, September 22–October 27
Next Door continues as we embrace and live into our new vision at UPC: Joining Jesus to reconcile all people. God became flesh and blood and moved into the neighborhood (John 1:14 MSG). And we've been doing the same. This autumn we'll consider how we do that together in circles of friends. Jesus never calls us to do what we do alone. He calls us together. In community. It's only when we live together in intentional, gospel-shaped community that we begin to experience and reflect what the Bible calls "the body of Christ." And when we do, our neighbors take notice. Before we run to our neighbors, let's join hands in circles with one another and go together.
Sunday Worship Times
8:30am & 11:45
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.

8:30am & 10am
Following the 8:30am and 5pm services and between the 10:30 and 11:45am services, 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 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 Parlor, just outside the Sanctuary.
Programs for Children
Age-related classrooms are on the second and third floor of the building. If you're new or visiting with us, stop by the Start Here Table in the foyer for more information, or visit upc.org/kids.
