Next Steps

Here are ways you can learn, grow, and serve at University Christian Church.

Your Journey begins with UCC & You

Maybe you’re brand-new to UCC. Or perhaps you’ve attended a service here for years and are looking to take the next step. Either way, UCC & You is a can’t-miss, in-person seminar designed to answer your questions, share our vision, and help you plug in.

It’s where you’ll learn about UCC’s history, the resources we have to support you, and how you can find the one ministry (or five) that you’re really passionate about.

The Discipleship Path

The role of the church, ultimately, is not to have the best programs and exciting events. The role of the church is to create disciples who are growing in their faith. At UCC, we believe the discipleship path involves 5 different steps. Everything that we do is to help you grow and mature as a Christian.


  1. Worship regularly – we believe worship is a vital discipline to helping us maintain a healthy relationship with Christ.  Faithful followers worship faithfully, making worship their highest priority—when you are in town, you are in church. And when you aren’t in town you join us online, or find a place to worship with other people of faith.
  2. Pray – disciples will spend time every day in prayer for the church and the church family. Because a regular and disciplined prayer life is absolutely necessary for us to stay in proper alignment with God.
  3. Study – faithful disciples are life-long learners fueled by curiosity. They will find ways/groups to grow, study, learn in community. Faithful disciples continue to go deeper into what it means to be a person of faith.   
  4. Serve – we believe God has equipped each of us with skills and talents. Growing disciples serve the church with their time and talents, serving God in a hands-on capacity, engaged in ministry.  They believe that the question will not be IF I should serve in the church, but HOW BEST can I in serve the church?  They recognize that service to others is service to God.
  5. Give – Disciples commit to grow spiritually through practices like worship and prayer — and giving is one of those practices. Sharing financial resources helps support the mission and ministry of the church, and helps disciples grow in generosity. The path begins with giving a specified amount, and working toward the biblical goal of tithing (giving 10% of income).
