Sometimes going to a new place can be intimidating. Just knowing how to find a friendly face or where to take your children when you get here can make it feel a lot more comfortable.
In the video below you’ll be able to take a short virtual tour of UVCC. We’ll start by showing you how to get from the parking lots to the atrium. From there we’ll take you to the Worship Center, to KidsPlace where infants, preschool and elementary age kids experience worship, classes and special events. We’ll also show you the big indoor playground. Next, we’ll take you to where the junior and senior high teens meet.
If you’d like to be able to get in touch with someone before you get here just call us at 937-778-8822.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many worship services does UVCC offer?
UVCC has services every Sunday morning at 9:15 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. You can attend these services in one of our three venues: the Main Worship Center, the East Venue (9:15 only) and the iCampus (online church). Each service usually lasts about 65 minutes.
What do people wear at UVCC?
You might be wondering if we wear jeans, khakis, capris or shorts. The answer is yes. First and foremost come as you are. But, just in case you’re wondering how most people around here will be dressed it’s pretty broad. A lot of guys wear khakis or jeans and anything from a button up shirt to a t-shirt. Ladies wear jeans, pants, skirts, shorts and dresses. Most importantly though we look forward to seeing you, not what you’re wearing.
How long has this church been in the area?
UVCC was planted in 1994 and has been at this location since 1997.
How many people attend UVCC’s worship services on a weekend?
Each weekend there are over 700 people who come to one of our services. Even though that’s a lot of people it doesn’t appear that large since not everyone is here at the same time.
How would you describe your worship services?
Relevant, upbeat and casual.
To what denomination does UVCC belong?
UVCC belongs to the Church of the Nazarene which is focused on helping people become followers of Jesus Christ locally and around the world. We appear to be a non-denominational church because our main focus is on reaching people and that is what overwhelmingly guides how our church looks and feels. The Church of the Nazarene has been in existence since 1908. It was founded to spread the message that we are all able to receive Christ and become more like Him which results in a life of blessing and significance.
What is your “Statement of Faith”?
This can also be phrased: “What do you believe?” As a part of and under the authority of the Church of the Nazarene we hold to their statement of faith or belief. To learn more about these beliefs click here.
How do I become a member?
Membership is a process here at UVCC not an event so it takes some time. We want people to show that they are faithful over time (at least 6 months) to keeping the basic Christian attitudes & actions that make up our membership requirements. Fortunately, we don’t see membership as a gateway to doing things or belonging to our church – so you can fully participate in ministry, worship and small groups even if you aren’t a member.
The first step is to continue attending UVCC and become more connected to God and others in our church. We want each member to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and strong connections with others in the church. We also have an eight-week one-on-one Bible Study that we encourage everyone to go through that will help you begin or strengthen your spiritual journey.
You will also want to attend “About UVCC”, a class offered at least every 3-4 months – keep an eye on our bulletin for the next class schedule. Then after 6 months, if you are faithfully living out our membership covenant (some Biblical principles we emphasize), you are invited to attend a membership class and join the church.
