Children

Bring the family to a COVID-safe Trunk-or-Treat! Sign up for a time to come by the UPPC parking lot to trick or treat at decorated cars. To ensure that everyone is safe during this event we will have you check in, hand sanitize, require protective face coverings, and keep your family group 6 feet from other families or volunteers.  Parents must accompany their children throughout the event. Please leave scary costumes at home. Register to host a "trunk" - prizes for the best trunks!
We believe strongly in the involvement of the  whole church in our children's & youth ministries. UPPC loves kids! If you are interested in getting involved we have a number of ways to impact the lives of students in our community as a prayer partner, mentor, or volunteer in our programming.  Click the link below!

Sunday Morning Sunday School

Every Sunday morning children will participate in a fun Bible lesson, sing worship songs, and engage in other fun activities.  It’s our goal to make learning about Jesus an exciting and interactive experience. This year we  are using a curriculum based on The Jesus Storybook Bible.  If you are worshiping from home, children can follow along with our Sunday School lessons using our year-long schedule.

Please contact Julie Mangrum at [email protected]  if you would like a copy of The Jesus Storybook Bible!

Join us for kickoff on Wednesday September 16th!
Campfire is our mid-week program where students in grades 1-4 learn about Jesus, play crazy games and create cool art.  Please walk your children to our check in station that will be on the sidewalk near the lower entrance to the church.  We will have students hand sanitize and get their temp checked when they arrive.  Starting at 7:30 we will be doing drive by pick up so you will not need to park and leave your car.  Have your children wear a mask and bring a labeled water bottle. We will be using the UPPC playground for our meeting location while the weather permits us- please dress accordingly!

Special Needs Parent Support Group

We get that parenting a child with special needs has its own unique challenges. That's why we started the Parent Support Group for those with children of any age living with special needs, different abilities, or sensory issues.

Our next meeting is November 1st, 12:15-1:15 on Zoom.

My story at UPPC

Lindsay Furber, mother 

“Our eldest son, Jack looks forward to Sunday School and Campfire every week. He retains the lessons he hears and will often bring up different points or even share his knowledge with his younger brother. Best of all, Jack asked to be baptized this past year. When I asked why he wanted to be baptized, Jack said that he wanted to show God he was dedicated to him. I believe it takes a village to raise children and a whole church to raise them in faith. I’m so thankful for all the children's ministry team members who are guiding children, like Jack, into their own faith.”
