Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
-Mary Oliver, The Summer Day
Christian discipleship is a life-long answer to the poet Mary Oliver’s question: “What will you do with your one wild and precious life?” Discipleship is also a life-long journey that is shaped by the call “to love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love your neighbor as yourself.”
At United, we offer many ways to take that journey – through Sunday morning forums, retreats, study series, service and education trips, and study groups. We invite you to join in these opportunities to learn more about the Christian faith, God’s call in your life, and the community and world around us.
