Your Child's First Visit

What to Expect on Your Child's First Visit

Welcome! We are so glad you are considering visiting University Christian Church with your child, grandchild, or young friend!

If this is the child’s first visit to UCC, please ask directions to the Welcome Center in the main reception area. This is on the first floor near the porte-cochere facing University Drive. The greeters at any entrance can direct you. At the Welcome Center you will be assisted in completing a digital form and escorted to classrooms if you are unfamiliar with our building. This process allows you to proceed to any child’s room without filling out additional forms at every room. It also affords us the opportunity to follow up with you after your visit if you indicate that wish.

Children attend classes based on their age & grade level on September 1. So, until mid to late August of the next year, a child remains in their grade level with like-aged children until everyone promotes up a grade on Promotion Sunday each August.


Infants through Kindergarten rooms are all on the ground floor. Click here for information about dropping children off in the Preschool area.

Child Care is available from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. each Sunday morning with Sunday School and music during the 10 o’clock hour. 


Journey Land is UCC's 10 a.m. Sunday morning programming for 1st - 5th graders. During each rotation children get to experience a Biblical theme through several different workshop venues ranging from drama or art to cooking or puppetry. If you haven't attended yet, simply check out the wooden sign boards on the second floor for the location of each grade level for that particular Sunday. We hope you'll bring your child and make some new friends!

Elementary age children attend worship with their families. Click here for information about ways we help children engage in worship.


At the Welcome Center you will also be offered information about the many and varied adult Sunday School opportunities of UCC. The greeters can help you locate the class you chose to attend.
