Church is not defined by a building. The people are church. Church is living a life committed to God and spreading Christ's love no matter where we are. In this time of social distancing, we are not isolated from each other. We as a church community and as individuals will not stop doing ministry, no matter where we are. Below are ways to connect and engage virtually:
Facebook: Worship will be premiered on our Facebook Page at 10 AM. Here, we will be connecting and engaging virtually. We welcome everyone worship together.
Website: You can also worship on our website by visiting ucpreston.org/online-worship.
YouTube: The service will also be on our YouTube channel.
Bible Study & Small Groups via ZOOM
Weekly Bible Study and Small Groups are meeting through ZOOM, an online meeting platform. Contact Pastor Beth to receive a ZOOM invite to the Wednesday morning Bible Study at 10 AM. Contact Kate to schedule a ZOOM meeting for your small group.
Facebook Groups are a place for continued conversation and discussion. If you or your small group is interested in setting up a Facebook Group, contact Kate.
Daily scriptures and readings will be posted throughout Lent. Read them on our blog.
Take time for reflection and contemplation. Each day during Lent, we are posting a photo and daily word on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. It's never too late to join in! Learn more.
At-home meditations will be posted weekly:

Children's Sunday School
We are excited for the opportunity for Children to grow in their faith through online Sunday School. Each Sunday, children have the time to be in ministry together virtually. Email Pastor Beth to have your children part of online Kid's Ministry.
We are looking for people to submit a brief video of themselves greeting the congregation. We will put the clips together and share on Easter Sunday. Please keep video length close to 10 seconds. Videos can be submitted through email to Kate.
