At Upper Deer Creek Church we are striving to have opportunities for all ages. These listed below are just a few and please join us on Sunday to see where we can help you get plugged in.

Children's Church

This is our children's church class for students 4 years old through 3rd grade. This class has exciting and current music, fun crafts, and more age-appropriate intensive lesson time. This class is a stepping stone for being able to participate in the Sunday services at Upper Deer Creek Church, as well as in Kid's Club. If you have any questions fee free to email

Mercy House

A free clothing ministry of Upper Deer Creek Church. Open the 2nd Saturday of every month.

Benevolence Funds

The Benevolence Committee is assigned the task of assisting those in our church family and the surrounding area with mission critical expenses when there is a shortfall in funds. The committee is comprised of church members tasked with accepting and evaluating applications, then praying over and dispersing funds given specifically for this outreach. The funds distributed do not derive from the UDC general fund, but from the outpouring of God's graciousness into the Benevolence account. The committee focuses on critical items such as food, heat and shelter. The objective of this committee is a very short-term gap stop and is not intended for long-term covering. Click on the attached link for an application. If you have a need, please fill out this application in its entirety and return it to Upper Deer Creek Church.

Praise & Worship Team

The UDCC Praise & Worship Team leads the congregation in worship every Sunday morning. What a joy and honor it is to get to serve the Lord through music! We are comprised of several members, and our main goal is to worship the Lord and give Him the glory that He deserves on a weekly basis. We have a wide variety of musical selections and strive for a blended service of musical styles. We sing both hymns and contemporary music each Sunday. It is a blessing to be a part of this wonderful ministry at UDCC. Come and worship with us! If you have any questions feel free to email

Marriage Table

The Marriage Table is a once a month gathering for engaged and married couples. It is an opportunity to gather around the table for supper, laughter and fellowship. The goal is to learn God's purpose for our marriages by focusing on Christ and enjoying the community he has placed us in for this season. Everyone has something to offer and something to learn, so this is really for all seasons of married life. Marriage Table meets at 6:30 p.m. at the home of Kyle & Brittany Armstrong -5968 S. 1100 E. Walton
Please see our calendar for Marriage Table dates in 2018!
