Proclaiming the Word

Bible_resPrayer for Illumination – We ask the Holy Spirit to inspire and inform the reading and proclaiming of Scripture in order that we might better understand it’s message.

Time for the Younger Church – Children are important to us here at UPC and we have created a time where a specially prepared message is presented to them. At the conclusion of this time, new visitors are welcomed with a gift of hospitality.

Anthem – The choir proclaims the Word of God through song.

Scripture Reading – The congregation participates in the reading and hearing of the Word of God.

Sermon – The pastor preaches a sermon inspired by the Word of God.  Think of a sermon as a conversation between you, the pastor, the world, and God. It is okay to question and think critically during a sermon, and the pastors welcome your thoughts and feedback.
