First time at University?
Posted: September 15, 2017

University Christian Church is a community that loves Jesus, seeks to celebrate our diversity, and share God's love in our neighborhood.

Here are some things to expect about the way we worship:

Come as you are. Our members like to dress up or dress down as they feel comfortable. Some people wear suits and dresses on Sundays, but others come as they are. We don't have a dress code.

We use a lot of different kinds of music. Each Sunday, we try to mix it up with praise songs, hymns, gospels, or other music if it helps us draw closer to a God who is bigger than one tradition or one way of doing things.

Worship as you feel comfortable. Some love to sing praise songs and hymns. Others prefer to listen. Some love to lift their hands. Others love to dance. Know that we give you freedom to join in as God moves you.

Questions are welcome. Our pastors and leaders welcome questions about faith. If you hear something you disagree with, that's okay. Our small groups and Sunday School classes are always built around this understanding that seeing things differently and listening to each other is part of how we grow as disciples of Jesus.

We are kid friendly. Our nursery will be open, and we have a special children's moment in worship at our 10:45 AM service. Children are welcome to stay in the service the whole time. Some will love participating in Children's Church during our 10:45 AM service for Pre-K to 5th grade.

We are accessible. Our main entrance is handicap accessible, and our bathrooms meet ADA standards. We also have listening assistance devices in our sanctuary. See our sound booth for more information.

We do more than worship. Our church is a generous church who desires to serve our community. Each month, there are opportunities to serve in Community Place Cafe, a local feeding program, donate to Help by Phone, a local food pantry, deliver food to teen parents through our Feed the Kids project, and volunteer in the new PG Plaza Day Center which welcomes homeless neighbors for a meal. If you have an idea for a new project that can bless our neighborhood, we'd love to hear it.

We love Jesus. While we are open and strive to be welcoming, the core of our church is that we hold Jesus at the center of all we do. If you want to learn more about Jesus and figure out how to live out his radical way of life, you will find a home with us.

I hope to see you on an upcoming Sunday. If you have any questions, use the contact form above.

- Rev. Nathan Hill
