Spiritual formation is a lifelong process. At UPC, we offer several ways that you can continue to study the Bible, learn what it means for us today, connect with God and with other people on the journey and develop your spiritual gifts to do God’s work in this world.
The opiate epidemic is raging through our country and has affected the lives of many people in our congregation and our community. Dreamland takes a multifaceted approach to the subject, profiling people from all walks of life, ranging from citizens of impoverished Mexican ranchos to young affluent white athletes, all cogs in the wheel of the latest drug epidemic. Everyone is invited to join us in reading this award-winning treatment of the subject, and then gather for a conversation about it.

Lectionary Bible Study : Seasons of the Spirit
Led by class members on a rotating basis.
This is a Bible study and discussion class using the curriculum we have for the whole church. We will discuss the scripture passage of the day, following the revised common lectionary. All are welcome.
Mondays, 12:00–1:00pm in the Library Lounge
We started reading the Gospel of Matthew in December of 2016 and spent six months engrossed by Matthew’s writings about Jesus’ ministry. As of June 2017, we’ve moved on to Luke’s story of the Acts of the Apostles. We are reading to learn what we missed in Sunday school and what gets lost in preaching—to understand the Bible as the story of God’s people and their relationship to God and the world. We don’t always find answers, but we always learn from the text and from each other! You’re welcome to bring your own lunch. Come and see—it would be good to have you with us.
