UPC's 2018 Stewardship Campaign: If you weren't able to pick up your Stewardship packet after church in the last week or two, rest assured it is on its way to you in the mail. As you consider your pledge, think beyond bill-paying to investing in God's grace extending into our community and the world. Stewardship season will culminate on Sunday, October 22, when we gather for our annual Dedication Sunday worship services. With God's power within us, we can accomplish more than we can imagine!

UPC joins the many eager to offer prayers and resources to those affected by the recent hurricanes. Presbyterian Disaster Assistance  is our denomination's outstanding emergency response organization, committed to long-term recovery. PDA has been in touch with partners in the midst of the storms to organize relief. Monetary donations are most needed at this time. If you would like to contribute to relief efforts for those impacted, please make checks out to the church with "Hurricane relief" in the memo line. Thank you.
