If you would like to be a part of a supportive faith community as you deal with the stresses of life today, we hope you'll come and visit us. We'll be glad to see you and to welcome you into the care and nurture of our life together.
United Presbyterian Church is now on Facebook.
You will find us to be a congregation of all sorts of people: young and old, single and married, adults and children, traditional and nontraditional families. We are teachers, secretaries, engineers, homemakers, line workers, retirees. Some are involved in a church for the first time (or the first time in a long time), others are transfers from other denominations, and some are lifelong Presbyterians.

New Hymnal Purchase
The Session has approved the purchase of a second hymnal, called “Worship and Rejoice.” They are $12.95 per copy, and we liked the green covers! These will not replace our “Presbyterian Hymnal,” but include many of the hymns we have been singing from photocopies this year.
If you would like to order a copy for the pews, or for personal use, please fill out a request form (in the August newsletter) and mark your check “new hymnal purchase”. Dedication labels will be available. The plan is to place the order in August, and to dedicate the new books on the first Sunday in October, which is our anniversary as a congregation!

Monday Book Study Sept. 15, 22, 29 & Oct. 6
The Heart of Christianity by Marcus Borg, Elder Chris Burger will lead the discussions (Upper Lounge, 2nd Floor)
This book talks about what it means to be a Christian in today’s world. In part one,
Borg focuses on the basics of faith, the Bible, God, and Jesus. In part two, he tackles
some Christian phrases that progressive Christians have shied away from, like “born
again,” “sin,” and “salvation,” and challenges us to reclaim them. In this highly
readable book, Borg helps us shift from the old paradigm of American Christianity
to an emerging compassionate rethinking of the gospel and the essence of Christianity
as a lived faith. Sign-
