Our Sunday morning gatherings are one of the best ways to connect with others and get a feel for what we at University Presbyterian Church are all about. We have three worship services for you to choose from. The 9 a.m. gathering is a Traditional Service with a choir and organ, the 11 a.m. gathering is a Contemporary Service featuring a casual atmosphere and a band, and the Lao Language service is at 11 a.m., except for the first Sunday of the month when it joins with the Contemporary Service.
All of our services are relaxed in style, meaning there’s no dress code, and you are invited to come as you are. During the service, you are welcome to follow along, or simply observe as you feel comfortable. We hope that you will make yourself at home!
The Godly Play gathering -- our Montessori-based children’s ministry for ages 5 to 11 -- begins at 9:15 on the patio outside the sanctuary. You may drop your child off with their teacher here before they head into Room 4, at which point you can connect with other parents over a cup of coffee on the patio. Children attending the 9 a.m. service are invited to begin in worship with their family before being dismissed. Your children will be returned to you at approximately 10:15, so grab a cup of coffee and head to Adult Education in Majesty Theater or connect with others in the UPC community on the patio outside the Sanctuary.
We value children being a part of our faith community and not an accessory to it. Because of this, if you prefer your children to be with you in worship rather than in Godly Play, children are welcome to sing, dance, clap, draw, and move about as they feel comfortable. We also have a Family Room located at the back of the Sanctuary with a changing table and some toys for the kids during our 9am Traditional Service, and coloring stations, toys and snacks during our 11am Contemporary Service. Professional nursery care is available for children 0-4 years old during all services.
Between services you are invited to join us for a cup of coffee, or drop in on one of our Adult Education classes that take place in Majesty Theater most Sundays of the year. We love to linger and this hour gives us the opportunity to connect, get to know one another over a cup of coffee, or dive deeper into the Bible or a hot-topic issue in an Adult Education class. Coffee and light snacks are available after the 9 a.m. service ends. Adult Education begins at 10:15 and ends prior to the start of the 11 a.m. service.
Our campus is located on Roberts Avenue, off of Cedar Avenue between Bullard and Barstow Avenues. Ample parking is available.
