UPC's 2018 Stewardship Campaign: We are grateful for the generosity our congregation has shown during this year's Stewardship campaign of "More than we can imagine." As of November 2, we have received 290 pledges, totaling $1,309,284. We are off to a great start and hope the campaign will finish strong. If you have not yet made your pledge, you may complete a pledge card on Sunday that you will find in the pews and in the worship register.  You may also mail your pledge card to the church office at P.O. Box 509, Chapel Hill, NC 27514, email your pledge to finance@upcch.org, or pledge securely online at  www.upcch.org/stewardship .

The parking lot off Robertson Lane, adjacent to Dunham Hall, is now available on Sunday mornings. Please reserve these spaces for those whose mobility necessitates parking close to the church. Thank you.
