UPC values, appreciates, and respects women. If you’re willing to put yourself out there and get plugged in, we believe you’ll be glad you did. Hundreds of women call UPC their church home and find it to be a place where they have been able to make friends, use their talents and abilities to serve, and experience the joy of spiritual growth. Below are some ways women are able to connect and grow spiritually at UPC.
Ways to CONNECT
MOPS connects moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find our identity by journeying along side one another. MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. MOPS meets on the second Wednesday of every month (September through May) from 9:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Are you interested in fellowship with other moms of preschoolers and babies during the week? If so, this is the group for you! We meet weekly at various kid and baby-friendly parks on Tuesday mornings at 10:00 a.m. Even if your baby can't take full advantage of parks yet, come for the company!
Ways to GROW
At UPC, one of our core values is genuine community. One of the best ways to experience this at UPC is to join one of our Life Groups. These groups are UPC’s primary means of shepherding our membership and building genuine community. Many of our groups are a mixture of singles and married couples. We've designed them to be a place for anybody to find the genuine community we all long for. To join a group, fill out an online registration form. You can also visit our Life Group Finder to contact a Life Group leader in your part of town.
"The Gathering" is the name of our adult education program on Sunday morning. We are currently offering two adult learning communities:
1) "Christian Apologetics: How to Defend Your Faith in Changing Times" led by Frank Markle in Room 1.
2) "Reluctantly Devoted: The Message of the Book of Jonah" led by Justin Kuiper in Room 2.
The Gathering is a place of connection where you can enjoy a cup of coffee, share, and get to know people better. It's also a place of spiritual growth where you can study God's Word in an interactive setting. Pick one of the classes and join us Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. in the Education Annex.
