"Family Turmoil" is the title of the message this Sunday. We all understand what that means and are looking for biblical ways to deal with it. Join us as Pastor John unpacks I Samuel 18:17-30. During the service we will be taking communion so it is a great time to take an inward look and to do what you can to take ownership of sin and strive to fix broken relationships. In our second-hour time, we will be offering our sermon follow-up class and continue our Real Change class, but will also offer a third class entitled, “How to Parent Christ-focused Kids in a Me-focused World.” Please plan to come out--and bring a friend!
UPCC SOFTBALL is looking for men ages 16 and up interested in playing slow pitch softball. The season starts in mid-April and continues through June, with playoffs in July.

As we spring our clocks ahead it is a great reminder that the sun is up longer and that there are many that battle mental health challenges, not just in the winter, but all year through. Let’s take some time to be praying for those struggling and those who support them.
