Uptown Updates 

Merry Christmas!
Christmas Weekend at Uptown
We've all heard the words from Handel’s Messiah declaring that "unto us a child is born" who is “Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace,” but perhaps have not stopped to deeply consider how they explain the Messiah. Join us for this Advent sermon series as we explore the prophecy of Isaiah, written 700 years before the coming of the Messiah, in order to understand the meaning of Christmas.

This is a great time to invite a friend, so please consider who you might invite to Uptown during this season.

"Prince of Peace"
Isaiah 9:2-7

Please plan to drop off children at nursery between 3:45 and 4pm.

Note that this service will no longer be live-streamed.

"Everlasting Father"
Isaiah 9:2-7
Year-End Giving to Uptown
During this Advent Season, the deacons encourage you to prayerfully consider giving joyfully and generously to Uptown Church as part of your year-end giving plans. In 2 Corinthians, Paul encourages generosity by telling us that God wants to bless those who are followers of Him, not so that we may live in comfort but so that we may be even more generous with the time, talents, and treasures that He has given us. 

You can give to Uptown using the button below, the Church Center App, drop a check in the offering basket during the service, or mail a check to 926 Elizabeth Avenue, Suite 200. Please mail by 12/30 to be considered a 2022 gift. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
