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

Community Groups:

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. 

Life-on-Life Discipleship

UPC offers discipleship opportunities! Based on Hebrews 10:24, TEN24 is a relational, one-on-one discipleship course composed of 15 topical Bible studies. With God’s blessing, if you participate in TEN24 you will not only get to know the Bible better, you’ll grow in friendship with your discipler and more fruitful in your relationship with the Lord. The curriculum is designed to help you dig deeply into the Word of God to understand life from God’s point of view. TEN24 will give you a safe place to ask questions without being judged. It will help you discover your identity in Christ and how the Holy Spirit has gifted you. And it may be just what your spiritual life has been needing for a long time.

To get started in TEN24, go here and fill out our discipleship matching questionnaire. This questionnaire will help us know if you want to be discipled or if you’re a candidate for discipling someone else. No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, TEN24 will help you go the next mile or two. Please give it a try!
