Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

Mission at UPPC is defined as the movement of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit sending God’s people (the Church) into the world to declare the gospel in life, word and deeds. Our service serves as an example of God’s activity in the world, as we strive to be the love of Jesus locally, intentionally, spontaneously and tangibly.

My story serving at UPPC

Dan Small, Families Unlimited Foodbank volunteer

For 6 years, I have volunteered at the Families Unlimited Foodbank. Giving my time to help others is very important to me. I pick up food from local grocery stores and food warehouses that helps feed nearly 2,000 people each month. The hours I give each week helping others is rewarding and helps strengthen my faith in Jesus with every box of food I unload.
