Shear Shave Shine
Do Something Good For Your Soul

Maybe you hit the barbershop, or maybe you prefer the salon. Possibly you even visit the spa from time to time. Whether it’s for a trim, a shave, a color, a style, or any other matter of personal grooming, all of these establishments are designed to freshen up, clean up, and spruce up your outward appearance and how you feel about yourself. But how long has it been since you did a little soul grooming? A little cleaning, trimming, sprucing up, or just good ole pampering? For our Fall worship series at UBC, we’re going to spend some time on our individual, spiritual walks with God and how living our lives with God can strengthen and sharpen our inner selves. Join us as we consider how the Old Testament people of God viewed living with God, not just as an add-on to their lives, but as the central, overarching force for every faithful follower.

Our Mission
Becoming a family of Christ followers, connecting people with God's Kingdom
Encountering Christ
Encountering the Christ of Christmas In Worship & Beyond

The season of Advent considers all that Jesus brought into the world, and looks forward to that day when he will return and usher those qualities of love, hope, joy, and peace in their FULLEST capacity in the future. This holiday season we look to experience these qualities of life “in Christ” not only in the baby’s birth but also in the savior’s ministry. We seek to experience them not only in seasons where things are going great, but also in seasons where we struggle with difficulty and loss. The Christ of Christmas is available for all of us to encounter this holiday season, in worship, in service, and in sharing life with the family of believers.

Living the Story: Jonah

No matter how much the times change, people continue to remain the same. Whether its people who lived thousands of years ago, or people who share the streets with us today, everybody’s life moves in and out of love and crisis as they search for hope, provision, and purpose. The stories of Ruth, Nehemiah, and Jonah illustrate different levels of crises, from the local family, to the community, to international dynamics. They also illustrate how people of God worked to resolve crises in their midst, whether they were personal crises, or crises of those around them. Every story is a movement from problem to resolution, including the stories of our own lives. We seek to solve the problems of loneliness, fear, complacency, death, loss, pain, as well as many others. And in God we find that resolution can be found in Jesus Christ, in faith in God, in the fellowship of friends and family, and in the mutual investment we make in one another’s lives. The stories of the Old Testament may be centuries old, but they are our stories still today. And in them we see how our service as the people of God to our families, our churches, our communities, and our world impart hope and transformation to all who are in need, even to ourselves.
