The First Dinner: Risking Rejection

While we cannot meet together at UBBC for worship this Sunday, plans have been made to livestream worship via Zoom at 9:30 a.m.

A worship team including Cecilia Sakong, Chris, Nicola, Grace and Emily Kiver, Pastor Bonnie, Ken and Jesse will practice social distancing as they bring the worship to you from the sanctuary. This is a new way of creating worship for all of us so we expect there may be some rough spots or glitches, please be patient with the worship team and yourselves as we all experience this new way of being together for Worship.
Pastoral Care
During this time of social distancing, pastoral care provided by Pastor Bonnie and the Deacons is being offered by telephone, email, notes and cards. If you have a need or an emergency, please contact Pastor Bonnie by phone,
814-571-0346 or the Deacon on Call listed here each week. 
Please be in touch if you are aware of others who may need attention.

Deacon on call for week of March 22nd

Children’s Worship During Lent - March 22nd
The theme is Who is My Neighbor?
All children in preschool through 5th grade, and parents are welcome to join us via Zoom. Our theme comes from Luke 10:25-37, where a man asks Jesus “Who is my neighbor?”, Jesus’ reply begins with the story of the Good Samaritan. Jesus is opening the concept of neighbor. He wants us to be open and welcoming to everyone, and he wants us to help each other. Each week we’ll explore who our neighbors are, and how we can serve them.
