Senior Life Ministry
University Park United Methodist Church has over five hundred members 65 years old or older. Ministry to them is vital both to the well-being of the church and the spiritual development of each member. The vision for this ministry is being designed to capture and create opportunities for their collective wisdom, knowledge and education for the advance of God’s work here at the church and within the community.
A message from the director
February is generally a dull month, with unpredictable Texas weather, but nothing is unpredictable here at UPUMC. Everything you see listed in this newsletter is designed to help you weather the dull month with interesting programs, exciting events and memorable worship experiences. Remember your church is always warm and dry, ready to welcome you, so come and bring your friends to all the events that interest you.
