UPC Adult Education Mission Statement

Adopted August 20, 2015

According to Matthew, Jesus said the greatest commandment is, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” (Matthew 22:37-40)

We at University Presbyterian Church, as part of God’s people in the Reformed tradition, seek to love God and our neighbors through educational opportunities that:

*are rooted in the Bible and present topics through a Christian “lens of faith”

*incorporate theology professed by the Presbyterian Church (USA) and the Reformed tradition

*integrate worship, study, and service

*nurture spiritual exploration and development

*encourage faithful living in concert with Christ’s mission

*welcome participants of all ages, backgrounds and beliefs

*respect and welcome other denominations and faiths

An essential function of a congregation is to provide educational opportunities that challenge people of all ages to become more aware of and to discern God’s call. We believe such study should touch upon all aspects of our lives as individuals and as a church community, informing our mission and enhancing our worship of God.
