Ministries

Many churches have lists of programs to help you connect with others in the congregation. While we have various ministries which do serve to build the church body in different stages of life, this is not our focus. Instead, we are an unapologetically relationship-driven church. If you ask “how do I get involved,” we want to point you to people rather than programs. Below you'll find the main ways that we encourage newcomers to connect with the people of UCC, as we seek to live out our mission as a church.

Children

In our children's ministry we strive to create a safe a fun environment in which to partner with parents to impart a gospel-centered foundation for our children. Our current curriculum is called The Gospel Project, click below to learn more.

Youth

In our youth ministry, we seek to continue to build a strong, gospel-centered foundation through learning and studying the Word of God in the context of small group communities, in partnership with parents.

 

Young Adults

Young adults (about 20-35-year-olds) meet a few times a month at informal fellowship gatherings called Chill Outs. Activities include everything from sports and lunches before the Sunday services to simply spending time together. Find out more about upcoming events at the Chill out Facebook page or UCC calendar.

Parents

UCC recognizes that parents often struggle at various stages of raising their kids in a Godly way. This is why we endeavor to bring parents together for sharing, praying, and for teaching on parenting. Courses are organized occasionally as needed.  

 

Dating & Engaged

At UCC we encourage engaged couples to supplement their marriage preparation through formal premarital counseling, usually consisting of 6 classes with a trained counselor. Visit the Pastoral Care page to request counseling.

 

Married Couples

The UCC marriage ministry seeks to help married couples experience the growth necessary for a healthy marriage, and to tackle the issues that hold us back from glorifying God in our marriages. Currently occasionally hold a Marriage Refreshment seminar for couples (babysitting and lunch provided).

 

Men

On a number of Saturdays each season, the men at UCC get together for a time of fellowship and practical teaching, often over breakfast.

Ladies

Normally on the first Saturday of each month the ladies at UCC get together for a time characterized by practical teaching and meaningful small group discussions over brunch.
