“My daughter, Caroline, and I went on a mission trip with Don Bobb to the Democratic Republic of Congo. The trip has fostered a whole new and different sense of mission for me.  UPC’s mission orientation has been a continual source of inspiration for  its members, and the Congo mission trip is one of many examples”

We had to accept the challenge of finding a new Presbyterian church where we could each continue the service we were accustomed to rendering.

“Back in 1998, when we first married, we visited several churches as we searched for the right fit. After that first visit to UPC, I remember, we were so excited as we were driving home from church.

This church has provided a safety net for my thinking—a place and a community where I can be in thoughtful dialogue about what it means to learn to know God, even if that process includes doubt.”
