Giving to UPC

UPC has long been a church known for its generosity and care for all of God’s creation. 

While we cannot currently gather together in person,
we can continue to respond to the goodness of God
and participate in the larger story of God’s love by the sharing of our resources.

Note: We are transitioning to a new database and giving system. While church members are not yet able to log in to the system, you can still give online without signing in. Recurring gifts have transferred over to the new system and should continue as initiated. If you have any questions, please contact Melani Willhite at

Planned Giving (Legacy Gifts & Bequests)

Planned giving is an opportunity for us to return to God that which God entrusted us with during our lifetime. It is also an opportunity for us to further strengthen Christ’s church for the future by providing ministry and mission for those who come after us.
