A Season for Stewardship

Each year we enter a time of discernment and faithful prayer about what it means to be stewards of God’s gifts. The Stewardship Committee has worked diligently to provide meaningful ways to engage with the process, including gatherings, announcements, brochures, videos, and even this site. As we walk together through this season, may we all be attentive to God’s call. This beautiful presentation of the life of University Presbyterian Church was prepared and presented to all members during the 2016 Stewardship Season. It reflects the various ways that UPC is Rooted. Giving. Growing.
