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
Gifts of Beauty and Bounty
It is the UPC tradition during Advent to honor and remember the people in our lives through Christmas Gifts of Beauty and Bounty. Your gift can be used to purchase a poinsettia which will be placed in the chancel, or as a contribution to the Inter-Faith Council for Social Services to support our neighbors in need. (You can also choose to do both with your gift!) The names of those honored and remembered with these gifts will be in the Sunday Worship Bulletin on December 12. Click here to learn more and 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.
