What to Expect

CHARLESTON CAMPUS - The grounds and facilities of UPT have been prepared by our volunteers to be a welcoming place that represents Jesus Christ in the Charleston community.

WELCOME - When you arrive, a host/hostess will warmly welcome you. He/she will familiarize you with the facility and answer any questions you may have concerning your visit. You will be offered a guest packet so you can connect with us regarding our special events and ministries (we keep your personal information completely confidential and use it only for the aforementioned purposes). The host/hostess will direct you to the age-appropriate classroom locations for your children and then escort you into the main auditorium for the service. 

PRE-SERVICE PRAYER - You will hear the sound of prayer in the sanctuary/prayer room as we prepare for each worship service. We are asking God to use His house as a place of refuge where you can experience His presence in a genuine way. 

WORSHIP - You will find worship as the highlight of our gatherings at UPT! We meet with great anticipation that God will inhabit the praises of His people. You can expect anointed music, energetic singing, and heart-felt expressions of worship. You are encouraged to connect with God in a way that is comfortable for you. 

WORD - Great emphasis is placed on receiving instruction from God through His Word, the Bible. Our lead pastor, Rev. Roger Wood - an ordained minister with the UPCI - brings us a steady diet of God's Word through prayerful preparation, anointed preaching, and life-changing teaching.

SUPER-CHURCH - Children ages 11 and under are given age-appropriate opportunities to connect with God through active worship, engaging activities, and rich Bible lessons. Superchurch is a genuine worship experience tailored to kids!

GUEST FOLLOW UP - Every first time guest is offered an opportunity to connect in a personal Bible study, receive literature to learn more about Pentecost, and speak with a member of our ministerial team concerning any personal matters. We trust your first visit will not be your last one!
