Experience the Wonder

Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year. We hope you spend it with us during our beautiful services throughout Advent and on Christmas Eve.


During the season of Advent, we celebrate Christ’s coming into the world and watch with expectant hope for his coming again. As Advent leads us to Christmas, we invite you to join in the opportunities offered at UPC. The church is decorated in the holiday spirit and we are filled with cheer as we prepare to welcome Jesus Christ into the world.
