University Christian’s Outreach ministry exists to encourage and engage our church community in demonstrating the love of God in Jesus Christ by our actions in ways that offer help, hope and reconciliation to individuals and families within and beyond our community.

We commit ourselves to building caring partnerships and fostering mutual ministries with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), other faith-based communities, and human services organizations serving those in need.

Featured Events

Room In The Inn

Twenty-two nights a year, ten different guests spend the night and enjoy dinner and breakfast. UCC volunteers not only give but also receive inspiration, compassion, and fellowship. Room in the Inn is about ordinary people loving their neighbors in extraordinary ways—welcoming and accepting people exactly as they are is the greatest gift any of us can give.

UCC, in partnership with the DRC (formerly known as the Day Resource Center), and other local faith communities, extend God’s extravagant hospitality by offering homeless guests our support and acceptance. Each week, during the open times of the program, guests are picked up on a Wednesday evening and arrive at UCC. Our guests share an evening meal and fellowship before they settle in for a restful night’s sleep. Breakfast is served in the morning and guests are taken back to DRC with a sack lunch for the next day.
