Upcoming Events in the Life of Our Church:

 

Throughout the year, the United Parish of Upton hosts several events here at the church. Some are celebrations in the life of the parish such as the annual Homecoming Brunch and Jazz Sunday Worship Service. Some are fundraisers; the Fall Yard Sale and the Turkey Supper, all of which benefit the programs and outreach of the United Parish. Some of our events benefit outreach projects which the United Parish supports; the Strawberry Festival and Auction to benefit the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Worcester and the Dessert Auction, which benefits the Deacons' Benevolence Fund.

 

Be sure to check our calendar and join us for any or all of these occasions.
