Our Sunday worship service is at 10 a.m. (Nursery Care available)
Children above nursery age and youth participate in the first portion of worship and then are invited to go to Sunday School.
Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of the month and is open to all.
Worship services at United Church in University Place are a vibrant experience. We include deeply spiritual and contemplative portions of the service, as well as joyful, lighthearted communal experiences. From the "open mic" during the time of prayer to the use of color and props around the communion table, UCUP works to create services that speak to the hearts of all.
Music is an especially important part of our worship. Each week our Choir leads our musical celebration and throughout the year special services incorporate our Chimes Choir, Children's Choir, and Liturgical Dance Choir. We include many solos and guest musicians as we sprinkle contemporary music selections throughout more traditional hymns.
Baptisms are scheduled at the request of the member or family.
Special Services are held at many times during the year - Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Easter Sunrise in the Curran Apple Orchard, Blessing of the Animals, also in the Curran Apple Orchard, Longest Night/Blue Christmas and a Celtic Christmas Eve service.
