New Class for Adults: Radical by David Platt
Posted: April 29, 2015

Starting Sunday, May 3, join our adult Sunday School class for an exploration of David Platt's Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream. From the title alone, you may be intrigued or challenged, but the book will be accompanied with lots of conversation as we seek to discover how following Jesus challenges us to go deeper than how we might live in our culture. At University, we celebrate diversity of thought and opinion as we respond to God's call in our lives.

The class is led by Kitty Williams and will meet in Room 5, gathering at 9:15 AM and beginning discussion at 9:30 AM.

Some books will be available on Sunday.

Living a Giving Life - 2015 Stewardship Campaign Begins
Posted: April 27, 2015

Every year, University Christian Church enters into an intentional time of prayer, reflection, worship, and challenge as we look to what God is calling us to do. We celebrate where we have come from and what exciting things have unfolded in the previous year. We look to the future together.

During this season, we ask that our members and regular visitors make pledges of tithes and offerings to support the work God is calling us to do.

This year's theme is "Living a Giving Life: Growing as Faithful Stewards".

Every day during these next few weeks, we are sending out stewardship moments via email to get one another thinking on God's generosity. Our sermon themes will explore what it means to be a steward and how to use our gifts to the best of our ability. We will wrap up our work with a big party during Celebration Sunday, May 17. We'll eat together and share some of your response to God's calling and movement.

If you would like to receive emails during this time, sign up using our Mailing List link on the website.

Join us for worship!

April 26 - "We're a Mess, But We're on Our Way"

May 3 - "Settling for Second Best?"

May 10 - "Trading Places"

May 17 - "There Ain't No Party Like a Holy Ghost Party"


Story Behind the Easter Quilt Banner
Posted: April 09, 2015

This quilt project was inspired by the Lenten Meditation Booklet, edited and published by Jackie Wintle in 1991. At the VBS Re-Creation Event held in 1992, participants chose the individual quilt blocks they wished to make, using the lap quilting technique. In March and early April 2015, Joyce H., Oneta B., Yunkyong H., Carole W., and Betsy H. finished incomplete blocks and assembled the work for display on Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015.

Roll over the image of the quilt below for more information about each block.

Learn about University's approach to ending homelessness.
Posted: December 03, 2014

This past year, University Christian took a courageous step in being the first organization and church in Maryland to become part of the Bridge of Hope movement, a recognized model of mentorship and support to help homeless families build a better future for themselves.

Through generous giving and a dedicated team of mentors, the journey has been challenging and exciting. The family we are helping is grateful for the support. There is much learning and growing going on. As a church, we have been surrounding the team and family with prayer and love in anyway that we can.

Recently, our work was celebrated by being featured in an article in Just Women magazine, our Disciples Women national publication. The article details the process and vision behind this work. It's a great place to begin if you want to learn more about this ministry and how you might be involved.
