Virtual Coffee Fellowship

You are warmly welcome to join us for a virtual coffee fellowship hour immediately following the Sunday service (more or less 11:30 am every Sunday). You can find the link below or in our service bulletin. Come say hi, but please bring your own coffee! 🙂 We’d love to see your faces, whether you’re a first-time visitor to United Community Church or a longtime member, and hopefully we can share some prayer or praise reports, or some testimonies about what God’s been doing in our lives. All are welcome!

The call will be open for more or less an hour after the service finishes – you can join by clicking here! If you can’t join with the link, the Meeting ID is 998 7707 5071, and the passcode is 221309

Lent at UCC

During the season of Lent, we will be reading through the gospels in preparation for Easter. We encourage you to discuss your reading with a friend or spouse! At the link below you can find the full reading plan as well as helpful questions to consider as you read.

Every Thursday morning until Easter, we’ll be hosting a church-wide prayer call from 7-7:30am.

Men of the Word:

Men, are you interested in diving deeper into God’s Word with other men, sharing prayer requests with other men strengthening the bond of friendship between us as men at UCC? Consider joining the new men’s bible study at UCC lead by pastor Shaun. Men of the Word will begin with the book of Mark, and learn how to read and study the Bible weekly on Mondays from 6:45-7:45am.

The study will be a online (zoom) for now, so men from both congregations can join. Click here to join the call! Hopefully we can also plan some outings together. If you are interested, send Shaun a text (050 382 5148).
