Welcome to Upland Community Church!

If you are thinking about visiting, you may be wondering what to expect. Typically on Sunday morning you will find casually dressed people (although a tie is ok, too), a worship style that has room for both contemporary and more traditional music, instruction from the Bible and an opportunity to connect with other people.

Worship Schedule 

8:30 am – more “traditional” with Jr. Church and Nursery
11:00 am – more “contemporary” with Jr. Church and Nursery
Sunday School is offered for all ages at 9:45 am
Livestream is available.
Please refer to our emailed bulletin information for details on other services offered.

Faith at Home

Giving is not just an activity but part of our identity in Christ. We believe that giving of our possessions and our selves is an act of worship out of a motive of love for Jesus Christ. The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. (2 Corinthians 9:6-8)

Thank you for your support of the work of Upland Community Church.
