YPBC Women

As women with a passion for serving God, we are a caring community who strive to be faithful, creative and accepting.

For such a time as this we endeavor to:

  1. Invite and welcome all women into our community
  2. Encourage women to discover their full potential in Christ
  3. Motivate, minister, mentor and befriend
  4. Live and serve under the influence and empowerment of God’s Spirit.

Who are we?

We support the ministry of the Church by:

  • Welcoming you as you come to worship each Sunday
  • Encouraging our Church family through cards, calls, and mailings
  • Working with Pastoral Care in delivering flowers to shut-ins each week
  • Supporting church school children through camp sponsorships and prayer
  • Providing sanctuary flowers and special displays
  • Keeping our kitchens supplied and functioning
  • Serving on Boards and Committees to ensure we are fulfilling our Vision as a Church

We support each other through fellowship at:

  • Weekly meetings of the Prayer and Bible Study Group and Dorcas group
  • Women in Community meetings held several times in the year
  • Special events to encourage and inform one another

We support the wider Christian community by:
