UALC Community Garden at Mill Run

The garden produced over 16,000 lbs of fresh produce in 2020 and that took a whole lot of volunteers to help! We are now in need of volunteers to help in this critical time of year for planting and preparing the gardens for another great year. Our big planting days are on four Saturdays, May 15-June 5, starting at 9:00 am. Come when you can and leave when you must. No experience necessary. Visit ualc.org/garden for details and safety protocols.
 

Serve with Youth Ministries

We are serving more and more people in-person each week. The ministries that we count on like nursery, Kids’ Church, Middle School Ministry (MSM), and High School Ministry (HSM) have to grow their teams alongside that growth in demand. Praise God we have so many infants, kids and teens to serve! The quality of what we offer is directly related to the quality of our volunteer teams. We know it’s all about relationships and we’re thrilled about the investment we can make in them, their families, and the spiritual growth that God brings forth when we work together as a church body.

Church Nursery is Hiring

UALC is in great need of hiring caring staff to work in our church nurseries at Lytham Road and Mill Run. Sunday morning hours available. For more information and to apply, contact Sarah Rumschlag.
