Adult Ministries

Church isn’t a building and it isn’t just about what happens on Sunday mornings. University Christian Church is a community of believers who are helping one another bring glory to God. As we do life together, we are striving to grow into Christ’s likeness, serve as He did, and share Him with others. We encourage you to check out the variety of ways you can connect here at UCC!

LIFEGROUPS

We are meant to do life together! Our lifegroups are groups of 8-24 adults who are encouraged to meet weekly in homes to build relationships with like-minded people who want to follow Jesus in every area of their life. Weekly Lifegroup meetings are broken down into 3 parts: we care for one another, seek God together through His Word and prayer, and encourage each other in applying what God taught us. Want to join a group? Want to lead a group?
