Sunday Worship Services

We gather each Sunday to hear the Word of God and receive His presence and promises to us in Holy Communion, praising the Lord through prayer, song, and fellowship.

Small Groups

Small Groups are one of the primary experiences of Christian community at UALC. A small group is a band of brothers and/or sisters in Christ where you can know and be known, love and be loved, care and be cared for, and grow in Christ together. Small groups meet 3-4 times per month all across town and new groups are always forming. Visit ualc.org/smallgroups for more information. 

Daily Worship - Time With God

The rhythms of our week shape the values in our homes. Between Sundays we worship God at home through studying the Bible, prayer, fasting, laughing with family, sharing a meal with a neighbor, or doing our best at work. Worshiping God with everything means that everything can be worship when we do for God’s glory with an awareness of His presence.
