Parent Support Group

We get that parenting a child with special needs has its own unique challenges. That's why we started the Parent Support Group for those with children of any age living with special needs, different abilities, or sensory issues. We meet for lunch after the second service on the first Sundays of each month. Keep an eye on the events page or app for specific topics and registrations!

Backpacks for Meru

Children at UPPC’s 2018 Shipwrecked Day Camp learned about the Meru Mission Team and supported them with their offering money. The team was in Kenya from July 28-Aug 12. While there they purchased and delivered 200 backpacks to sponsored children. The team also participated in a day of activities surrounding the official groundbreaking of the Watoto Center (“children’s” center). Activities included a celebration meal with the nearby primary school, a tour of the Watoto Center property, and a chance to add some bricks and cement to the brand new gate wall at the entrance. It was a wonderful time of connecting with  children who are sponsored by UPPC members and our ministry partners in Meru.
