Jesus loves us and brought us into relationship with Himself. His death on the cross was an act of love for us. In John we are told it was because God loved us so much that He sent His son to die for us, that we might have real life. He intentionally loved us, served us.
In being brought into that relationship, we aren’t only brought into a relationship with Jesus but also into relationship with one another. Being in a relationship with Jesus means being part of the church, part of the family of faith.
You will experience a love for the church when you intentionally love the church. You will have a deep sense of love for the church when you actively and intentionally practice love for the church.
In the 12-week 2019 summer series, we featured a video a week, highlighting the ministries and programs that the people love about UCP and the ways in which UCP gives love to the community. Watch them below:
Week 1: A Welcoming Church
One of the most loved things about UCP is how welcoming we are. New guests and members can attest to this. We intentionally work to be like Jesus, to welcome ALL who walk in our doors.
The Youth Ministry provides spiritually nurturing experiences for students in an open atmosphere where students know they matter. The Youth are loved at UCP and the Youth love the world. Below, you can see images from the summer 2019 mission trip to Puerto Rico.
"One of the things we love about United Christian Parish is that we are an ecumenical congregation. We are four denominations intentionally united in ministry to witness to the things that we have in common in Christ."
We believe that children who learn about God will make their community and world a better place. Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a meaningful part of our Children's Ministry allowing children to learn about God and the Bible.
Faith Formation is the process which by our faith grows and transforms our relationships with God and others. Our faith formation opportunities for all ages are loved at UCP. The open-mindedness in our Sunday School classes, Bible Study, small groups and discussions is especially loved. In deepening our faith, we hope to spread God's love in the community.
From our Praise Band to our Gospel Choir, we love giving praise to God through music. In addition to our music ministry groups, we host many concerts throughout the year for all to enjoy!
Our fellowship allows people to connect and celebrate life together in Christ. If you feel something missing in your life-love, friendships, a community, you will can that missing element at UCP.
We serve to help meet the needs of "God's most vulnerable people." Learn more about the ways we serve locally, nationally & globally.
We intentionally work to be like Jesus - to love everyone regardless of any "labels" society places on them. Social Justice lays at the heart of our ministry. Music: Good Vibes, Rebelution
We celebrate the diversity of people, of ideas and opportunities.
