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 Upton Heritage Day Progressive 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 Upton Clean Up Day to benefit our wider community 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.

 

Church Announcements 

We are working on making worship announcements more effective, integrated, and meaningful by incorporating them into our worship service. If you have information to share regarding the life of the church, please take a moment to plan your announcement ahead. Getting your announcement in the worship schedule is easy - you can reach out to the church office for assistance, or click here for an online form. See below for a brief description of the types of announcements in worship.

 

Your announcement is a testimony if its purpose is to inform - if it's about telling what you have seen and heard God doing in our ministry. These announcements can be made at any time. They are not time sensitive and do not request direct assistance. 

Your announcement is a call to offering if its purpose is to invite, to share opportunities, or to call the congregation to serve with financial gifts, time, input, or spiritual support. These announcements may be time sensitive. 

Whether your announcement is a testimony or a call to offering you may request two differnt times to make your announcement. This allows you to repeat information, further helping people internalize your message. Church staff will respond to your request and confirm with you the schedule of your announcements and ask for details where neeeded.

Do you have an announcement for a Sunday soon? We look forward to hearing from you!

Hosted by the Gifts and Services Committee, the Community Supper is held every third Thursday at 5:30 in the lower vestry (use the ground floor side entrance). The Community Supper is a place where our guests can enjoy the company of new and old friends and take a break from having to cook one evening a month. It's an opportunity for those outside of our congregation to come in and see what the United Parish is about, and of course it offers a nutritious meal for all, including a main dish, vegetarian option, salad, bread (generouly donated by Panera Bread), dessert and beverge. We accept a free will offering to help provide the resources necessary to prepare the meal. Donations are not required. Come and bring a friend. We hope to see you there! 

 

The next Community Supper will be held on October 18th at 5:30pm.
