Ministry of Outreach

We put our gifts and talents into service in many ways, among them, these important ministries:


Access for All ReVision

We are on a journey to making our church space truly accessible to all!   Phase I is underway which involves repurposing the use of our beloved church building!   Our community treasure, The Early Learning Center, will be moving all of the classrooms to Memorial Hall; our faithful staff will be moving offices to better serve the community and the upper vestry will be converted into an adult meeting space available to the community for group discussions, drop in work space, networking and more!  If you would like to particpate in this exciting ministry, complete the information below today!



The United Parish Early Learning CenterArts and Crafts 4

We believe that "welcoming the children" is one of Jesus' essential teachings. We believe that nurturing young learners and supporting young families is not business but ministry. We are so proud of our highly-acclaimed Nursery School and After School Program! We believe we make a lasting impact on our community and the world through offering quality, caring, and child-focused early education to families from all backgrounds and beliefs. For more information on registration and classes, see our Early Learning Center page.


Food PantryFood Pantry

In his parable of the Sheep and the Goats in Mt. 25, Jesus answers the question, "When did we see you hungry and feed you?" with these words, "When you did it to the least of me my brothers and sisters, you did it to me." Feeding the hungry is one of the primary outreach ministries of the United Parish and we do this through our Food Pantry, open two Tuesday mornings a month, welcoming residents of Upton and nearby towns. In addition to semi-monthly food pantry days, we offer Holiday Meal Gift Baskets to families who need and request them. For more information on Food Pantry hours and policies, and our Holiday Meal program, see our Food Pantry page.


Gifts and Service Committee

Our ministries of outreach are coordinated by our Gifts and Service Committee, the leadership body in our church that helps us put our resources - both human and financial - to work for God's purposes. Throughout the year our Gifts and Services Committee will help us plan our financial stewardship, put our gifts and talents into action, and direct our energies toward worthwhile and important areas of need and service, both near and far.
