Children & Youth
At UPC, our congregation, lay leaders, and pastors seek to honor our baptismal vows to nurture children in their Christian faith by:
- Helping children know God’s love and grace through worship, creative learning and fellowship events;
- Encouraging children to ask faith questions;
- Developing a love of the Scriptures with our children;
- Guiding our children in exploring ways to serve God.
We strive to provide God’s children with the faithful building blocks for their lives. Children are actively engaged in all aspects of our Christian community, including:
- Worship – Children actively participate in the main worship service, Children’s Sermons, and Bridge to Worship. Please click here to read more about Worshiping with Children, along with helpful hints for Parents.
- Education – Starts in the home and extends through active participation in Sunday morning classes which begin at 9:30 a.m. See the church calendar for further details.
- Music – Music is a great way for kids to hear stories and learn about the grace of God. UPC is formulating plans for a new children’s music ministry beginning fall 2015.
