Christian Education

Christian Education for all ages

Christian education is a life-long journey. As a community of faith we continue to learn from each other, from our faith journeys and from various perspectives on what it means to be a disciple of Christ. 

We invite you to become a part of this journey

Please refer all questions about our Christian Education Programs to Carol Roselli-Rasmussen, Director of Christian Education at carolrr@upcgl.org or at (847) 223-8131.
