Infants & Toddlers

It is never easy leaving your small child in the hands of people you don't know. This is why we do our best to provide a nursery that you can feel good about. Nursery care is provided by paid staff and volunteers. Our loving and nurturing nursery workers are there to care for your little one while you enjoy worshiping in our auditorium. We are serious about providing a place where you can feel good about entrusting us with your small child. This is why our staff members and volunteers are subject to criminal background checks. This is also why we use a secure check-in and pick-up system, because we care about you and your child. If a need arises, rest assured, you will be contacted by text.

Love God. Love people. Love our city.


We exist as a place for students to belong and to be loved. A place where they would have the opportunity to hear and see the love of God.
Our hope is that students, by God's kindness and Spirit, would be moved to believe and follow Jesus.
And our hope for those that do believe is that they would become more and more like Jesus each day.

Our Student Ministry's name comes from Romans 12:2 where Paul writes to encourage believers to become more like Christ rather than the world.

Our prayer and hope for all of our students is for them to know that they are loved by God, to know they are invited to follow Jesus, and to be challenged to become more like him in their own lives.

Wednesday Night Study

The Bible is full of words, great words that communicate God’s love for us! This study, specifically for middle and high school students, will take a look at key words from Scripture - both Hebrew (in the Old Testament) and Greek (in the New Testament). Words such as: Lord, love, heart, soul, strength, joy, peace, and hope will be part of the study. This will be exciting to discover how these words were originally used and what that means for us today!

Wednesdays @ 7:00 beginning September 19!

College & Young Adult Ministry

Our young adults attend the Sunday Evening Service. The goal through this relaxed and authentic worship gathering is to provide a place for connection with God and each other. Together we will celebrate who God is by singing, studying God’s word, communion, and coffee. Why coffee? Because having a cup of coffee with someone goes a long way. Together we seek after God in the midst of a world of opposing ideas. Our purpose is to find truth and bring truth to others.

We LOVE women! Women balance a lot, especially in Los Angeles: trying to make ends meet, balance work and home, travel on the freeway, and the list goes on. We are with you and here to support you.

If you’re looking for a way to grow in your faith and connect with other women, of all ages, who are headed in the right direction, you’ll find a number of opportunities here at UCC. Life is richer when we are better connected, and we are committed to cultivating and nurturing relationships that inspire growth in Christ.
