United Methodists are very intentionally connectional people. We want to help connect people’s passions with the needs of others. At University Park UMC, we are committed to this, whether it’s connecting people with needs in the neighborhood, or places around the world. We stand by to help you get better acquainted, acclimated - connected - to the calling God has within your life. Your presence is a gift to our church family. My prayer is that our church family will be a gift to you. 


Peace and Blessings,
Dr. Keith Boone
Senior Pastor

From birth through adulthood, our Sunday school classes seek to bring faith to life through Biblical study, fellowship, service to others, and care and support for each other.

A Pastor's Ponderings: Dec. 7

A Pastor's Ponderings: Dec. 7


I’m certain there are talents and gifts I lack.  One among many is the ability to master the craft of writing well.  So when someone else pens a poem or strings together a few paragraphs by which an idea, concept or thought is better conveyed than I could ever possibly share, I simply share their words.  Such is the case with a newsletter article from a pastor in Kansas I’ve kept for over 25 years, Tom Schneider:

“I suppose, except for the persons intimately and tragically related to the event – Elizabeth and Zechariah, Joseph and Mary, angels and shepherd and magi, Herod and soldiers – the birth of Jesus came and went without much notoriety.  Those ignorant of what was happening had no reason to inquire about what the birth might mean for them or others. We, however, are not ignorant and it is almost a denial of the birth to let the miracle of Christmas pass by without at least pausing to ask what it might mean for us and others.

As Christmas comes toward us this year we might pause to reflect that it was mostly those who did not count for very much according to worldly standards who were chosen by God to be the major participants in the birth.  A barren old woman, a faithful young girl, an old man struck dumb, a young man thrown into doubt, smelly and dirty rejects, and strangers from afar were the ones chosen.  Even as a babe, Jesus came to those with whom he spent most of his public ministry – the weak and despised, the estranged and rejected, the unimportant and sinful.

To those for whom the world seems to be a place of enslavement, guilt, judgment, darkness and hostility, it must seem that nothing will ever change.  Christmas promises that those enslaved shall be given salvation, those trapped in guilt will be forgiven, those burdened by judgment will receive mercy, those wandering in darkness will be given light, those suffering from hostility will find peace.  (Luke 1:76-79)

Christmas is most of all for those who have needs which the world cannot or will not provide.  In the rush of our Christmas comings and goings this year let us take time to ponder the promises of Christmas and to wonder if perhaps one reason Christ’s birth slips by us so quickly is that we are so satisfied that we sense no need for the gift.  If so, it would be well for us to slow down enough to truly receive Christmas.”

Will our hearts and homes truly prepare Him room this Christmas?  So be it.  Alleluia!  Amen!

Christmas blessings to you and yours,


Dr. Keith Payne Boone
