We are seeking to be like Christ

Christian Formation


We have a variety of Christian Formation opportunities for

  • We consider Christian Formation to be the lifelong journey of growing in faith. Through prayer, worship, study, fellowship, and mission we can experience spiritual growth in our lives.
  • We recognize that Christian Formation is the continual process that gives purpose and meaning to our lives as followers of Christ.  UUMC strives to offer opportunities for learning and growth and support for one another as we seek to be like Christ.
  • In addition to the age-specific opportunities below, we have events throughout the year for all ages, such as our Fall Fest and seasonal workshops, e.g., during Lent. 


We recognize that our Christian faith journey continues throughout our lives. Our church offers adults a variety of opportunities for learning and growth.
