What to Expect

We hope you'll join us for our Sunday worship service at 10:30 a.m. to see what we're all about. Through diverse music and practical messages we present the truths of the Bible in a format that's easy to understand even if you've never been to church.

What should I wear?

A variety of dress is appropriate at UBC. While some dress up, many others dress casually. You will see everything from sport coats to jeans.

What should I bring?

If you have a Bible, bring it. If not, no problem. We project the Bible verses on a big screen for everyone to see.

When is the best time to arrive?

We suggest arriving 10-15 minutes early to allow for parking -- conveniently provided on a number of side streets surrounding the church.

Where do I go?

Walk up the steps on Wilson Ave.. Immediately, on your left is the children's nursery. To the right, are the stairs leading to the sanctuary. If you are in a wheelchair or need assistance, please enter at the Wilson Ave. street level doors. We have an elevator which goes to the basement or sanctuary.

What happens during the worship service?

Usually, after a quick welcome, our service begins with worship music, led by a band. Most people stand during this time, however, there is complete freedom to be seated if you prefer. The words of all of the songs are projected onto a screen, and you can either sing along or just sit back and enjoy the music. You'll probably hear songs you can relate to even if you haven't been to church in years.

Then, like most churches we take an offering. If you're a guest - relax! The worship service is "on us" and there's no obligation at all on your part. 

Next is the weekly message, given by one of our pastors. It's when we read the Bible together, consider what God is saying, and apply it to our life.

How long does the service last?

The service lasts approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes.

What about after the service?

While it's up to you, don't feel that you have to hurry out the door. In fact, you may want to help yourself to a cup of coffee, stop by the Welcome Center, talk with one of the pastors, or meet some of our people.
