Advent is a season of preparation and anticipation leading up to Christmas. Join us as we prepare our hearts and our minds to once again celebrate the birth of Emmanuel, God with us!
Opportunities to Give
Alternative Gift Market
Are you feeling a little overwhelmed by the prospect of shopping for Christmas this year? Not sure what to get that friend or family member who has everything? Let us help! At the UPC Alternative Gift Market, you can make donations in honor of your loved ones that will help support our partners around the world who are working to serve and support those in need – no gift wrap required. The online market will open in mid-November (upcch.org/agm), and we will also have a physical table at the Advent Craft Festival.
Christmas Joy Offering
This special offering of the PC(USA) provides the opportunity for future leaders of the church to pursue and fulfill their dreams through Presbyterian-related education. The offering also helps families of active and retired church workers meet unexpected needs through the Assistance Program of the Board of Pension. You may give via check (with “Christmas Joy” in the memo line) or online here.
