Mission and Outreach are very important at UPC. UPC has as one its core values to reach out to the community beyond its walls with compassionate care for those who are the most vulnerable. Many of the organizations supported monetarily by UPC through the Outreach programs have active volunteers, board members, or other involvement from someone in the UPC congregation.
Clearly, we are not the only people being led by God and so we seek to share our resources with community partners whose programs reflect our values and interests.
Additionally, UPC’s Outreach Committee sponsors a monthly “Dignity Offering.” The first Sunday of each month the organization who will benefit from the offering will make a short presentation on the purpose and goals of the organization and how UPC can help. The following Sunday, the congregation can bring the items requested, or a monetary donation, to support the cause.
