Adult Ministry

Grow up strong in God's Word and live your faith in the world


At UALC we want to worship God with everything we have—heart, soul, mind and strength. We do this by gathering together on Sundays and engaging in daily worship at home.

Sunday with UALC 

We gather each Sunday to hear the Word of God and receive His presence and promises to us in Holy Communion, praising the Lord through prayer, song, and fellowship. Click here for current schedule.

Time with God at Home 

The rhythms of our week shape the values in our homes. Between Sundays we worship God at home through studying the Bible, prayer, fasting, laughing with family, sharing a meal with a neighbor, or doing our best at work. Worshiping God with everything means that everything can be worship when we do for God’s glory with an awareness of His presence.

Daily Worship 

UALC provides a daily Bible reading plan that follows the theme of our sermon series, as well as a blog reflection on each day’s scripture. Click here for the Daily Worship Blog ans Daily Bible Readings.


As we pursue life with Jesus, we want to be more like Him by living with soft hearts, engaged minds, open hands, and whole spirits. To fuel this spiritual growth, UALC offers the following resources

Small Groups

Small groups are one of the primary ways we grow disciples of Jesus at UALC. A small group is a band of brothers and/or sisters in Christ where you can know and be known, love and be loved, care and be cared for, and grow in Christ together. Small groups meet 3-4 times per month all across town. This is the primary experience of Christian community where we live out the “one anothers” of the Bible. New groups are always forming. Click here for more information.

Growth Workshops 

Covering a wide range of topics, Growth Workshop meet us right where we need to mature and prepare us for what’s next in life. Families, individuals, and even entire small groups participate in workshops from time to time to carve out space for phase-specific growth and faith conversations that may not happen otherwise. Click here for more information.

UALC Retreats 

UALC offers opportunities for adults to get away for extended, focused time with God and each other. Learn more about Men’s Bootcamp here. For information about Women’s Boot Camp, click here.

Family Camp 

Do you need to get away as a family? Looking for a fun, practical way to deepen your relationships with God, each other, and fellow believers? Click here for more information about Family Camp.


As we worship and grow together, Jesus also calls us to love our neighbors and serve together.

Missional Living

We believe that our neighborhoods, workplaces, and communities are places where we have opportunity to join Jesus where He is at work in the lives of others, serving them and sharing the hope that is ours in Christ.

UALC Mission Partners

We are passionately invested with our mission partners. We seek to serve our world and invite our neighbors to catch the love of Christ as we serve together to meet real needs in our community. We serve regularly and lead others to serve as we give generously of our time, talent, and treasure. Click here to discover local serving opportunities.

UALC Ministry Teams

Because we believe that everyone has gifts from God for ministry, various ministry teams are formed to carry out community outreach through youth and adults. To learn about serving on a ministry team, contact Jeff Morlock. 

UALC Mission Trips

We sponsor annual, short-term mission trips. Each trip has at least one specific focus, such as medical outreach, children's camp, or construction. Click here for information about mission trips.
