University Church offers two Sunday morning services during the program year (September through May).

The 9:00 "Early Service" is an informal and more intimate worship experience. Many people think of it as a Bible study with worship. Worshipers sit in a circle of chairs in the sanctuary and share in the leadership of reading the scriptures and the litanies of prayer. The pastor's sermon is more conversational, inviting responses from those attending. Songs are chosen from a song book while the musician accompanies on the piano.

The 11:00 service, while more traditional in style, is marked by a warm and engaging atmosphere. Both the pipe organ and the piano are used to accompany the chancel choir, soloists, and congregational singing. Music includes hymns and songs from across the history of the Church, from ancient times through the twenty-first century, including music from around the globe that reflects the diversity of the Christian church and of our own church family. Worshippers offer particularly enthusiastic greetings during the Passing of the Peace. An opportunity is given for worshippers to share joys and concerns for the pastor to include in the pastoral prayer. 

During the summer months (June through early September), University Church holds one worship service at 10:00 a.m.



Our communities are filled with violence and suffering.

Our personal pain and struggles can overwhelm us.

How do we respond?  How can we cope? 

University Presbyterian Church welcomes Christians from all traditions to unite in a special contemplative worship experience as we seek spiritual strength for the living of our days. Based on the style of worship practiced in the Taizé Christian community in France, these services offered on the First Friday of each month provide an oasis at the end of the week for all who are weary, troubled, or rushed. Special music from guest musicians, meditative songs, prayers, candles, and scripture readings allow each of us to find a quiet place of prayer and spiritual centering.

We invite you to join us on the first Friday
of every month from 5:30 to 6:00 p.m.
