Mission and Peacemaking

UPC is committed to community outreach, mission support, and Christian advocacy of peace and justice issues. We are connected to many local organizations, programs, and projects whose objectives reflect the aims of compassionate discipleship. UPC distributes benevolences to about a dozen agencies and urban missions, as well as to our missionary family in Africa, the Cuban presbytery, and our partner church in San José de los Ramos. UPC also supports a local minority elementary school and participates in the Volunteers in Public Schools reading program. From time to time UPC, coordinates citizen responses to legislative debates on issues of justice and equality, and organizes special lunches or events to call attention to mission initiatives or social problems that cry out for humanitarian response.

Contact us if you would like to volunteer or connect with any of our mission and peacemaking opportunities.  Check out the list of our partners here!

Through the Local and World fund, UPC also responds to emerging needs, sending contributions to disaster relief funds or to inspiring but underfunded operations like the orphanage My Brother’s Keeper in Liberia.
