At Upper Path Valley Presbyterian Church You Will Find:
A multi-generational body of believers committed to being and making disciples of Jesus Christ. We are a member congregation of the Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians (ECO). We look forward to meeting & serving together throughout the week, but especially on Sunday mornings for Small Group Christian Education and worship.
Our small group hour between worship services finds people of all ages learning the Bible in a variety of ways. Separate age-appropriate classes for infants/preschoolers, K-2nd graders, 3-5th graders, and 6-8th graders are focused on teaching God’s word and God’s work & presence in the world of the Bible and the world today. Our youth (9-12th grades) are challenged and encouraged with personal relationship building and solid, age-appropriate Bible study. Three to four adult classes on Sunday mornings and group studies on Wednesday evenings (from October through March) find young adults through senior adults challenged to study the Scriptures and encourage one another. Guests are always enthusiastically welcomed!
We worship in a traditional church sanctuary with beautiful stained glass windows, yet God calls us beyond the traditional to communicate God’s love for us and our love for God. We have a paper bulletin for everyone as well as hymnals in the pews while at the same time we use a projection screen to lead the congregation through the service together. We use a variety of music that reflects the diversity of ages in our church family. In worship we are drawn to our Savior, Jesus Christ. He is what matters most. We come to grow in love for him, for one another, for our community, and for the world.
We are expectant that God will continue to grow our church as we are faithful to be and make disciples, remaining faithful to study & teach his Word, to reach out to those in need, and to care for one another with compassion and joy.
Our vision: To ignite a deep-rooted passion for Christ in future generations.
Our core values:
- We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the absolute truth.
- We rejoice that God’s grace is a gift that cannot be earned by works.
- We believe that Jesus is the head of the body, the church; therefore he must have first place in everything.
- We are committed to missions, near and far.
- We are welcoming to everyone.
Our mission: The mission of UPVPC is to be and make disciples of Jesus Christ.
