On Sunday mornings at 9am and Wednesday nights at 7pm we have Bible classes for adults and children of all ages. These classes are a great opportunity for you and your family to grow in the knowledge and understanding of God’s word. We hope you’ll join us!


Newly updated Care Group Calling Chains are available in the rack by the main entrance. Please make sure you have the up-to-date information, especially as winter weather nears.


There are several copies of the most recent edition of “Heart to Heart”(which we mail around the community) and “Gospel Minutes” available on the table by the main entrance and in the hallway across from the preacher’s office. Please take them to use and distribute as you can.


Pray for Kyle Digiandomenico and Emily Nowakowski who are finishing up a mission trip in Guatemala.


Your old eyeglasses (especially ones for reading) are needed for various mission points.

We are still collecting cartridges from Inkjets and Faxes to help with the support of the children who reside at the Shulz-Lewis Children’s Home.

“Box Tops for Education” and “Campbell’s Labels for Education” are needed by Mid-Western Children’s Home. Only the UPC label is necessary.  To save time and shipping expense, please cut the label out before placing them in the box in the hallway.

If you want to help with any of these ongoing ministries, please bring the items and place them in the appropriate containers on the table in the hallway.


The church office is looking for any tall cylindrical CD cases used to store stacks of CDs or DVDs. If you have some we could use, drop them off in Joyce’s office.


Some people live their Christian life to the fullest, while others drift aimlessly.  Some are passionate about their faith, while others are apathetic.  How can we keep our passion and zeal for God alive?

Next week’s lesson by Phil Sanders is, “Keeping My Zeal”.  The program can be seen locally every Sunday, 7:30a.m. on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7.
