What do s’mores, Christmas carols, fire pits, free food and plenty of fun and games mean? It means welcoming you back to Campfire Christmas!

On Thursday, December 22 from 5:30 – 8 PM we’ll be outside on University Carillon’s field by the pond roasting marshmallows, singing Christmas carols, hanging out with miniature horses and playing games to prepare our hearts for the gift of Christmas.

Best of all, it’s FREE. All you have to do is bring some friends and family, and either lawn chairs or picnic blankets and we’ll take care of the rest.

For more info, contact

Campfire Christmas is a HUGE event (800-1,100 people in attendance), and we need a ton of hands to help make it happen. So parents, grandparents, EPIC students, Prodigal college students, friends: check out this sign-up link to sign up for a shift. Your shift can be as short as an hour, so you can still enjoy festivities for the rest of the time!

If you see a time slot open, feel free to sign up. While some ministries are “heading up” certain stations, you can volunteer at any station. Thank you!

It’s Christmas Party time! Invite some friends and we’ll see you there!

Celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

To a little town of no great renown, the Lord kept a promise … that a mighty King would come—an Anointed One, a Messiah, a Savior. And though a triumphant entrance was expected, the Lord—in His grace and mercy—answered humanity’s (and Israel’s) longing for more … in the cry of a baby: God’s plan to save the world.

Join us as we celebrate this wonderful gift of Heaven: Jesus Christ. Emmanuel—God with us.

A weekly journey open to incoming 8th graders and above (through 12th graders).

Confirmation is a journey for all students, 8th–12th grade, who want to walk through the story of God to learn the foundations of following Jesus within our tradition of faith. Our hope is to build fun, deep community as we spend time in scripture, prayer and conversation and unpack what it means to be a Christian in today’s world. (Light “homework” reading the booklet and scriptures is required weekly.)

Confirmation is also a way we, in the Wesleyan tradition, invite students to “confirm” their baptism (if they were baptized as a baby; if not, students will have the opportunity to be baptized at the end of the journey). It’s also a way students can become official “members” of our larger UC family.

We highly encourage walking through Confirmation to ultimately be the student’s choice (of course, with parental guidance and support!). We consistently find that students who choose to walk through Confirmation because of their own curiosity, and/or desire to grow and mature in their faith, receive abundantly more from the journey.
