Each Year Upper Room engages in a year end initiative that invites our community to engage deeper.  This year we are inviting everyone to Step Toward Humanity.  Step towards relationships. Step towards learning. Step towards sharing. We desire to be intentional with funds going outside our walls to support our greater community. At the same time, the end of the year is our largest giving goal to help Upper Room maintain a healthy and stable financial position which allows us to continue in the work God is inviting us to do!


Over The Last 18 months, we have recognized a budding relationship with Avenues for Youth.  Avenues is such an impactful organization empowering youth to find their path out of homelessness.  They are now one of Upper Room’s community Partners.  We want to support Avenues and their work this Advent Season.


Please join us in our goal of raising $5,000 to support the work of Avenues for Youth.


We are inviting our community to make a special financial gift to UR’s General Fund to help us meet our largest monthly goal.  Our December giving goal is $85,000. This goal will help us start 2022 in a healthy financial position.


Each year Upper Room relies on the faithful giving of committed individuals and families to support the work of being alive through the words, actions, and presence of Jesus. Thank you, thank you, thank you! We are able to do this work together, because of your generous and sacrificial giving. So, even if you are unable to give over and above this December, know we are so appreciative of your presence in this community.
