At UPC, we feel the terms “spiritual formation,” “Christian education,” and “faith formation” are holistically the same, since they all help grow and shape our intellect, habits, and desires into the likeness of the Body of Christ. According to the Office of Spiritual Formation of the PC(USA), this likeness is one of deep intimacy with God and genuine compassion for all of creation.

Christian Education at UPC provides opportunities for all ages through practices such as weekly Bible studies, rigorous book discussion groups, Lent small groups activities, relational service and mission projects, and asking difficult questions of ourselves and of each other.

As a result, we see the Holy Spirit indeed molding us into the likeness of the Body of Christ, through as many unique starting points and individual journeys as there are people in our community.
