Welcome to UPC!
If this is your first time worshiping at UPC, we have two worship services Sunday mornings: A Contemporary service at 9:00 am and a Traditional service that starts at 10:30 am. Each service is one hour long. From 10:00 to 10:30 am is Sunday school.
The Contemporary Service:
Our Contemporary Worship gathering happens in the main sanctuary. There is a coffee fellowship where people chat and have coffee and tea before and after the service. Announcement will be on the TV screen in the overflow room. Feel free to grab some coffee and take it to the service with you.
The Contemporary service will start at 9:00 am with some modern praise and worship songs by our praise team, announcements about the life of the church, Bible lessons and a message from Rev. Dr. Jason C. Harshberger.
If this is your first time as our guest, we don’t expect a gift from you, but would be thrilled to have you fill out and return the connection card found in your bulletin so that we can follow up with you!
You’ll find the traditional service in the main sanctuary. Before the service, there is coffee and tea in front of the sanctuary in the overflow room if you’d like to have some and mingle. You are welcome to have your coffee in the sanctuary.
The service will start 10:30 am. Expect traditional music from our organist and our experienced choir, as well as a Bible based message from our Pastor, Rev. Dr. Jason C. Harshberger.
There is a social gathering with treats that follow the Traditional service in the Fireplace Lounge.
If this is your first time as our guest, we don’t expect a gift from you, but would be thrilled to have you fill out pew pad so that we can follow up with you!
Combined Services in the summer:
In the months of June, July and August our services combine for a 9:30 am worship time.
Answers to some questions you might have:
What to wear?
You are welcome to come as you are for each service. We welcome all!
What do I do with my kids?
We celebrate having children in worship. Make sure to grab a worship bag form the ushers to help your child in worship. You are welcome to drop your infant/toddler child off at the nursery when you arrive. Children’s Chapel is offered during both services, following the scripture readings, for Kindergarten and 1st grade children. Children’s Chapel helps children understand why, how and what we do in worship. Grades K-5th meets for Sunday school at 10:00 moving through various activities based on the Vacation Bible School or the Bible series that the church is studying for the year.
Do I need anything for the service?
You don’t need anything other than a pen to take notes with, if you like. Bibles are provided in the sanctuary along with hymnals that are used in the traditional service while songs are on the projector for the contemporary service.
