Students are welcome to join our adult Bible study in the Narthex. We are currently viewing a DVD-based series on progressive Christianity called “Dream.Think.Be.Do.” This study is open to all church members.
UBC is developing a new worship combo that will perform and lead music in a variety of contemporary styles, including rock, jazz, bluegrass, hip hop, and more. If you play an instrument or sing and would like to get in on the ground floor of an innovative new musical group, we invite you to join us.

A flying buttress is a part of a cathedral that supports the walls so that the building does not collapse under its own weight. In this group begun by Sarah Councell Turner, people serve as supportive buttresses to others. They do this by identifying persons who have taken unpopular stands for justice or for an important principle, and then writing notes of support and encouragement to them. Not everyone is called to stand on the front lines in the struggle for LGBTQ rights, racial justice, or other controversial issues, but anyone can be an encourager of those who are.
New Jim Crow book discussion
As part of our effort to promote racial reconciliation, members of our congregation are reading and discussing Michelle Alexander’s book The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness. We have two groups—the Tuesday group is facilitated by Pastor Bob Turner and the Wednesday group by Frank Benline. The groups meet every other week and cover one chapter at each meeting. The church will provide the books; if you want one, complete the form below.
