Opening Doors

Commit to Opening Doors

At UPPC, we strive to be the love of Jesus locally, intentionally spontaneously and tangibly. This calling has never been more important. 

Our church has been a tangible and growing presence in our community for nearly 90 years. We are blessed with facilities which provide for numerous UPPC ministries and in addition host scores of meetings and events for our mission partners, other community non-profits and schools.

Simply put, our building is not for us alone – it is a place of ministry, a vital connection to our community and a mission field. And at the same time, our facility needs updates and new energy. Our facilities are tired and need to be refreshed. 

With this objective in mind, the Refresh Team began to meet eighteen months ago. Over these months what started as a simple endeavor – updating carpets, bathrooms and adding air conditioning – has become a bigger, broader vision for the future of UPPC and the importance of our influence in God’s work here and throughout the world.

This new Campaign in support of this bigger vision is called Opening Doors. We are highlighting this vision and Campaign during May and the first two weeks of June. 

As a part of the UPPC family, we hope you will take the time to learn about the Opening Doors Campaign. This website is a great starting point; there are numerous other opportunities for you to take a tour, meet with someone from the leadership team and ask questions.

Then we hope you will take the time to prayerfully consider how you might financially join with us in Opening Doors at UPPC for years to come. At a time when the church is often no longer at the center of things, it is imperative that UPPC continue to thrive serving our Lord at the center of our community.

Small Groups

Cornerstone holds to the belief that personal growth happens in large and small intentional groups. Discipleship happens best in small groups because they offer accountability, growth, and community. We offer small groups from 9 – 12th grade; for both boys and girls. Small groups begin each year in September. All small groups are led by adult and high school Cornerstone leaders with meetings taking place weekly or bi-weekly. If your student would like to be in a small group or you want more information about small groups, please contact Robin Fawcett at 253-722-4321 or rfawcett@uppc.org.

Small Groups 
Foundation believes that growth happens in smaller, intentional groups. We believe strongly that discipleship happens best in small groups because they offer accountability, growth, and community. We offer small groups for every grade for both boys and girls. Small groups begin each year in September for the 7th and 8th grade groups. We let 6th graders have one semester in Foundation before beginning small groups; 6th grade groups begin in January each year. All small groups are led by adult and high school Foundation leaders and meet weekly or bi-weekly. They are a great place to go deeper. If your student would like to be in a small group or you want more information about small groups, contact Taylor Conrad at 253.564.2522 ext. 151 or tconrad@uppc.org.
