This Week at UPA

April 7th Worship

Scripture: 1 John 1:1-6
Message: Complete Joy

Blessings and grace in these first days of the empty tomb!

I asked my daughter what one does when they have gone through all of the Easter chocolate. She answered…

“Give PEEPS a chance!”

In the name of justice through Peeps, this Sunday we’ll be celebrating the JOY of new life through humor! Holy Humor Sunday is this week when we’ll be telling jokes, laughing through singing, and generally just having a silly-good time. Our scripture is from Paul’s first letter to John, a message that celebrates “God is light and through God there is no darkness at all” so that our “joy may be complete.”

Join us this Sunday and be ready to laugh in egg-cellent ways!


This week UPA prays for…
…Melissa and family, on the passing of her father, Bill Garner.
…those affected by the bridge collapse in Baltimore.
…Gail’s niece, Michelle.

Anthem: “Alleluia” Jerry Sinclair
Meditation: “The Lamb” anonymous
Sung by: Marina Khankhalaeva, mezzo soprano and MinSun Im, tenor
Postlude: “Improvisation on Some of the Keys”
