This Week at UPCC
We look forward to gathering together this Sunday at the church - what joy it will be to sing our praises to Him again in our building! We will be starting back with an hour-long family service. We will provide crayons, coloring sheets, and sermon note pages for the various ages of children to help keep them occupied during the service. The service will start at 9:30 and will last about an hour. Please review the options for our family service below:
- The main auditorium will be set up for people to sit in every other row with their families. Masks will not be required to be worn, but please know you can wear one if that is your preference.
- The downstairs simulcast will be set up such that social distancing guidelines will be followed and everyone who attends or serves will need to wear a face mask.
- We will have another room set up for any overflow from either room.
- There will be no children's ministries or cafe time this week.

Member's Meeting on Sunday, July 7th at 8 PM
We will be presenting our next fiscal budget, discussing staffing and our reopening plan along with any questions that you might have. Please email your questions to Sue Esterline at email@example.com. A zoom invite will be texted to members as we get closer to that day; please plan to join us.
We are asking our members to please contact us if you or a family member have recently graduated from high school, tech school, college or beyond. We want to properly acknowledge those who have worked hard to achieve their diploma. Please text or email Sue Esterline as soon as possible.
This is a final request for our members to send in their ministry serving preferences for the upcoming year from September 2020 - August 2021. If we do not hear from you by the beginning of next week (July 6th) we will presume you desire to stay in the same ministry and will schedule you accordingly. If you have any questions please contact Sue Esterline. As always, we appreciate your willingness to work together to meet the ministry needs of our church family. Thank you for serving!
Some have met all along the way, others had taken a break, but our desire is that all members be plugged in and active in GAP groups. As we look to get things up and running again in the fall, please let us know if you would like to join a group, change groups, or to let us know that you would like to lead a new group. Please email Sue (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will make sure we get you plugged in.
The Open Link Needs You
Whether it is for serving food to the children of the valley or helping out seniors in our area, The Open Link is in need of your financial and food donations. We are "the chili church", so grab a couple of cans and drop them off on the table in the simulcast or the foyer to help those in need in our community.
As we reopen we have some extra cleaning that needs to be done. If you or your family want to help us out, please let Sue know (email@example.com). We would appreciate any extra time you can give.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
in Him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to Him.
