All Members' Meeting Audio
If you missed our All Members meeting during 2nd hour on Jan 6th, please see the members section for the audio clip so you can catch up on all the exciting things God is doing at UPCC!
Grab a Baby Bottle for a Great Cause
During the month of January our "Selfless Service" project ties into our Sanctity of Life Sunday. We are asking you to grab one or two baby bottles to take home and fill up with change, or paper currency if you would like, and bring it back during the first two weeks of February. You can leave these on the counter in simulcast, or in the bin in the third-floor lobby. All donations will go to Crossroads Pregnancy Center which focuses on the lives of both mom and baby. So please grab one or two this Sunday!
In Case of Snow
Since there is a threat of snowy weather this weekend we wanted to remind you that, if there will be any changes such as a late start or cancellation of services, we will send out a text to all members, and have a note on our website, plus have our info listed on Channel 69 news at least two hours prior to our service time. Please make a note of that so you can be aware of any decisions made.
New Classes Begin January 27
We are excited to announce three Equipping U options for second hour starting at 11 AM, Sunday, January 27. The Deep and Wide follow up to the sermon class will be in the auditorium. Real Change: Becoming More Like Jesus in Everyday Life will be in the third-floor fellowship area and The Fruit of the Spirit in Marriage will be in the simulcast. Please plan to stay and join us!
The Elder team has appointed Dwight Woelkers as our new treasurer. He is replacing Doug Bishop, so please pray for his ongoing transition. If you have any questions about our finances, please feel free to reach out to any of our finance team members (Bob Lewis, Brett Kolb, Erin Krupp & Alex Long). Please pray for this team and thank them for the work they do over and above their other other ministries at UPCC!
Real Change Class Info
We are excited about this upcoming 2nd-hour class to begin Jan 27th! To get the most out of this class you will need a Real Change: Becoming More Like Jesus in Everyday Life book (available for $5) and a few "change partners" to work with. Ideal groups would have 3 to 4 members and should be the same gender. This is a great opportunity to partner with your GAP Groups and working through “Real Change.” We will help connect you with a few partners if you wish.
Please email Tom Flud(firstname.lastname@example.org) and Ray Golden (email@example.com) with any questions. Please also drop them a note to let them know if you would like to reserve a book ($5), or if you have already identified your partners or know for certain you will need assistance getting placed with partners.
S.A.L.T. Potluck Dinner Cancelled
This event has been cancelled due to the weather forecast. Hope to see you next time!
This Sunday is Sanctity of Life Sunday. We will continue preaching through our Core Values. Pastor John will be taking us through “Teaching and Living God’s Word" but there will be applications to our theme. During the service, we will have some special testimonies and reminders to grab baby bottles for our ongoing giving project. During our second hour, we will also have a panel discussion on adoption and foster care in the auditorium and an opportunity to hear about the Boyertown church plant in the simulcast. Decide now to come out and invite a friend--and don’t forget cafe time each Sunday at 9 AM in our third-floor fellowship area!
Weekly Prayer Focus
We encourage you to make sure that once a week you check out our prayer list. There are items on there that stay the same each week but also new items for which we really covet your prayers. This week we ask prayer for the King and Keiper families on the loss of parents. We also ask prayer for Katie Miller, daughter of Bill & Cindy Miller, as she had seizures this past week and has been in the hospital. If you have any requests, please send them to Jane King at firstname.lastname@example.org. To see a complete list of prayer requests, visit the members section.
