United Presbyterian Church offers many ministries to help grow and nurture parents and families as followers of Christ in a welcoming community. We provide opportunities for parents to support and learn from one another, have fellowship to build bonds of friendship, and to have a break from parenting duties to run errands, have a date night, or just rest.
Wednesday Night Connecting Point Parents' Class
By Wednesday night, we sometimes just need a break! Join us for a meal where you do not have to cook or clean up then the kids will be whisked away to have some supervised fun in our new Maker Space, the gym, playing games and more. Middle/High school ages are welcome to utilize the youth room for games, TV, homework or hang out in the gym. Parents are welcome to join together in the library for a casual time of discussion, advice and possibly some venting. Sharing our struggles and joys about parenthood with one another in a welcoming and judgement-free zone. Anyone is welcome to join us.
Connecting Point Family Game Night
Every fourth Wednesday of the month (September-May) at Connecting Point, UPC sponsors a game night. Dinner is served at 5:30 and games can begin whenever you are ready. All are invited to bring favorite games and play with others. Nursery care is provided. Children are invited to play games with families. Game Night ends at 7:30pm, but families can leave at whatever time is best for them.
UPC offers an intergenerational class on Sunday mornings at 9:00am for all ages. This is an opportunity for parents to interact with other parents, children, youth, and older generations. We watch short DVD presentations and then engage in discussion with each other.
Parent's Night Out
Every second Friday of the month UPC offers a ministry to parents! Here is the deal: you get to drop your kids off with us for fun and games while you get to have an evening to enjoy dinner, see a movie, shop, or just sit in your car in the glorious silence for a couple of hours for the bargain price of $5 for up to two children, and an additional $5 for the next two! Spots will be limited to 10-15 depending on available help.
UPC Parent-2-Parent is where parents in our church and preschool families connect for support, encouragement, and ideas. It's also where we partner to share the blessings our families enjoy by reaching out in love to other parents and children in our community and world. Parent-to-Parent is for any parents in our community who want to connect with other parents for fellowship and mission opportunities.
Our families are busy! We know it's impossible to find a time that works for everyone, so we encourage you to participate in our Facebook group and attend whatever meetings and events work for your family. Whether you come to one meeting or ten, we will be happy to see you at any time. We'll also share any resources from each meeting in our Facebook group, and we'll look for opportunities for virtual fellowship. If you are interested in learning more, receiving meeting dates, or being a part of the Facebook group, please contact Pastor Stephen at .
