Simple Christmas


This time of year can often be complicated, stressful, filled with consumerism and over indulgence. But, this was never God's intention. Join us in going back to the Nativity, which reminds us that Christmas is about the simple things- love, peace, joy and hope.
Discover the opportunities UCP offers you this season to de-stress, find clarity in an often chaotic time and remember the real reason for the season:


Grow

Bible Study: The Songs of Advent, Wednesdays, 10 AM, November 28-December 19
