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 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 Community 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 Group Finder to view a map of our groups or contact a Community Group leader in your part of town.
Fall 2021 Bible Studies:
Elijah by Priscilla Shirer
Every serious believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that can stand frim on Mount Carmel like Elijah did. Yet few are willing to go through the process required to get there. Join in on this journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine.

Brave Enough by Nicole Unice
Brave Enough is about the courage we discover through a relationship with Jesus Christ. This courage is a result of grace - God‘s love and kindness – a force that changes us from the inside out. No matter what life throws at us, the confidence we find in God’s grace enables us to move forward – taking one brave enough step at a time.
Led by Lee Weidenmuller | Tuesdays from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.

Begins September 21
Paul's prayers in the New Testament are beautiful models of how we should pray. Join us monthly as we sit under a prayer of Paul's followed by some time together to pray through that prayer and for one another!
