Where to Find Ubcmusic (by jamie)


Hope this finds you well.

I’ve had several people ask me recently about where they can listen to our original songs outside of Sunday morning, so I figured I’d answer that question in the newsletter in case anyone else was curious.

There are basically two names to look for on Spotify/Itunes/Amazon/etc.  The first is Jameson McGregor (me).  I released an album called Wild One in 2016, and we sing several songs off of that on a regular basis (Wild One, Wandering, Bonfire, Hope, There).

The other is ubcmusic.  We released an EP last October called Ubcmusic, Vol. 1.  We spent a lot of time coming up with the title.  Of those, we sing Wideness, Mystery, Pulse, and O Love That Will Not Let Me Go the most (and Anthem is a fairly frequent offering song.)

There is new music coming soon from both of these projects, the After the Dust Clears EP (Jameson McGregor) and Ubcmusic, Vol. 2.  I’m assuming Vol. 2 will be out first in late September/early October, but We’ll be sure to make a big deal when those release, so keep your eyes peeled.

Anyway, have a good week.



If you are interested in joining a Micasa, you can sign-up after church this week, or email Micasa’s are a great way to intentionally get to know other UBC’ers, and share life together. Micasa’s kick off on September 8th.

Lunch Buddies

If you are interested in mentoring a middle student one day a week during lunch, we need you. Contact or sign-up after church on Sunday. Lunch Buddies is a great way to invest in kids from our neighborhood.
