Lent @ UPPC

Lent is the 40 days leading up to Easter during which Christians focus on the week Jesus was arrested, crucified and resurrected. Here are some ways you can engage with your church community during this time:

Lent Learning Groups

Sundays Now-March 25 | 9:30 & 11AM | Gym

Join us during either service to dig deeper into that day’s sermon. Feel free to pick up the Prayer Guide being used in the Gym even if you can’t attend the group.

Palm Sunday

Sunday March 25 | 9:30 & 11AM

On Palm Sunday we remember Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem, and honor him as our king and savior.

Maundy Thursday Dinner 

Thursday March 29 | 6PM

Join us for a soup dinner where as a family, we will eat together and walk through the days leading up to the resurrection with the twelve disciples. 

Stations of the Cross

Wednesday March 28 | 5-9PM |
Thursday-Friday March 29-30 | 7AM-9PM 
Saturday Mar 31 | 7AM-12PM | Fellowship Hall

The church will be open for a self-guided tour of the Stations of the Cross. Materials will be available to walk you through the stations. 

Good Friday Service

Friday March 30 | 7PM | Sanctuary

Attend a tenebrae service of darkness with choir, orchestra, and dramatic readings as we contemplate the sacrifice Jesus made for us. 

Healing Service

Sunday March 18 | 1-2PM | Sanctuary

Join your UPPC Deacons for a service directed for healing from anything physical, emotional and spiritual. There will be time to reflect, to be prayed with and for and to be in community. Jill McMullen at 253.564.2522 ext.139, or jmcmullen@uppc.org.

Face 2 Face

Sunday April 8 | 12:15-2PM | Fellowship Hall

We understand that being new to anything can be an uncomfortable experience. That's why there's Face 2 Face. We have this lunch to make a big church feel small, and answer any questions you may have about the church or how things work around here. It's an opportunity to meet the pastors, staff and other people new to the church who are also looking for community. Lunch is on us! Childcare is available with registration. Contact Jill McMullen, 253.564.2522 ext.139 or jmcmullen@uppc.org.



Every other Monday April 23-June 4 | 9:30-11:30AM | Fellowship Hall

MOMSnext is a place for moms of school-aged children to find encouragement, support, relevant teaching, and opportunities to develop relationships with other women who are in this same season of life. Contact Jennifer Boucher with questions, jennifer-boucher@hotmail.com.


Women's Retreat

Friday May 4 6PM-Sunday May 6 12PM

Join us for a weekend to clear your mind, reflect, and pray. As women, we often overlook the need to Be Still and fill our own cups ... something we need to do so that we can keep giving. There will be many creative and relaxing options for you to have fun and refresh your spirit! $100 covers two nights, meals, yoga class, art night and more! Contact Emilie Walsh with questions, emiliekwalsh@gmail.com. Carpools will be available. Don't wait - only 15 spots available!
