Our Vision
for Education

Disciples of Jesus at UALC grow in their Biblical literacy and engagement, learning how to read, apply, and trust the words of Scripture. We learn together the hope of the Gospel, the role of God’s law, the meaning of the cross, and the role of the Church. 


For the last year, Pastor Steve and the UALC education team have been working on a video series for small groups. This seven-episode video series is part of a new study series we will be rolling out over the next several years to help develop the Biblical and theological foundation of our church.

To participate in this series, begin the study with your small group and plan to join us for our new education hour beginning Sunday, Sept 24, at 4:30 pm at the Mill Run Campus, where we'll learn from this new video series along with a teaching from Pastor Steve. Register for education hour here. Childcare is available with registration.

If you aren’t in a small group yet, sign-up here.



There’s a good chance you’ve heard the word Gospel before. And maybe you’ve noticed that people can mean pretty different things by it, even though they call them all “Gospel.” Some of those things are a lot more helpful than others.


If you’re curious about the Gospel of Jesus, if you wonder why Christians sometimes seem to be preaching different messages, if the Gospel has ever sounded like not very good news to you, or if you just want to grow in understanding Jesus’ message better, then we made this series for you.


Sunday Afternoon Education Hour 

Life and the Bible have this in common: they can both seem awfully complicated. Part of growing in Christ together is learning to understand the Bible and how to think through life’s questions with Jesus at the center. We are starting this fall where Jesus himself started: with the announcement and teaching of the Gospel.  

  • We’ll learn how the Gospel of Jesus sounded to the ears of those who heard it first. 

  • We’ll learn how the Gospel of Jesus meets our deepest human needs, and how to stop looking for life where it can’t be found. 

  • We’ll learn how the Gospel gives guidance, and power, for living together in the way of Jesus. 

  • And we’ll even learn how to share the good news of Jesus with others in ways that still feel like good news.


Join us for this new education hour beginning Sunday, Sept 24, at 4:30 pm at the Mill Run Campus where we'll use the new "Wells of Truth – The Gospel" video series (info above) along with a teaching from Pastor Steve.

Childcare is available with registration.
