Christian Education

We offer programs for all ages

Christian education is a life-long journey. As a community of faith we continue to learn from each other, from our faith journeys and from various perspectives on what it means to be a disciple of Christ.

We invite you to become a part of this journey

Please refer all questions about our Christian Education Programs to Ryan Aubrey, Director of Christian Education at ryanaubrey@upcgl.org or at (847) 223-8131.
