Presbyterian Youth Connection Spring 2021

Connect with your UPC Faith Family as we continue to grow our faith, even during a pandemic. Regular zooms and occasional (distanced and masked) parking lot visits will keep us in touch with one another, give us a space to share our burdens, and help us grow in faith as we stay safe.
