United Presbyterian Church

United Presbyterian Church

We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God.

Wherever you go, God is sending you, wherever you are, God has put you there.

He has a purpose in your being there. Christ who dwells in you has something He wants to do through you where you are. We believe this and live in His grace and love and power. In our family of faith you will find caring, loving people.

There's a place for you at United!

Presbyterians affirm that God comes to us with grace and love in the person of Jesus Christ, who lived, died, and rose for us so that we might have eternal and abundant life in him. As Christ's disciples, called to ministry in his name, we seek to continue his mission of teaching the truth, feeding the hungry, healing the broken, and welcoming strangers. God sends the Holy Spirit to dwell within us, giving us the energy, intelligence, imagination, and love to be Christ's faithful disciples in the world.

Presbyterian refers to the governmental structure of the church, led by Presbyers (from New Testament Greek meaning Elders). Elders provide the spiritual leadership of the church. We also have a board of Deacons to provide care for the members and community. Our board of Trustees care for the buildings and grounds, keeping them in excellent shape as our center of mission into the community.

United Presbyterian Church Events

Ladies Lunch Bunch

UPC Ladies Lunch Bunch is a group made up of women of UPC that meet once a month on the third Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. at various restaurants around the area for friendship and fellowship. It is Dutch treat and all ladies are welcome. It is a great way to get to know one another in a relaxed, non-rushed atmosphere.

UPC Book Club

UPC Book Club meetings are held once a month at Supreme Bean's Coffee Shop. Although we read all genres fiction is most widely read and discussed. Occasionally authors have attended our book and shared their work with the book club. All members may offer suggestions for future meetings. The book club is open to all. One does not have to be a member of the UPC church to participate.

Joy Bible Study

Joy Bible Study, a women's Bible group, meets on the second Tuesday of the month from September to May. The group meets at UPC. We are a group of women who pray, laugh, and eat together. We take turns leading the lesson and volunteering to hostesses and plan the lunch. Each year we choose a lesson for study and a mission project to sponsor. Those who wish draw names for a secret sister for the year, gifts are given for birthdays and Christmas. Names are revealed at the December meeting and party. We are a group of good friends who work well together. This is us.

Nursing Home Ministry

Nursing Home Ministry meets on the second Sunday of each month, UPC goes to the Seaside Nursing Facility at 2:00 p.m. All are welcome. The ministry focuses on music, prayer, and songs. Simple musical instruments are provided. Each song is featured where a short history of the song or song writer is read describing the circumstances of why and how the song was written. The most important part of this ministry is showing God's love for us and our showing love for each resisdent.

Mens Prayer Breakfast

Carl Foxes UPC Prayer Breakfast began as a dream of the late elder Carl Fox. Carl has a dream of getting the men of the church together for a time of Bible study, prayer and fellowship. His dream became reality although he was never able to attend. Each Thursday of the month the men of the church are invited to gather at Steve's Diner, located at 1584 S Nova Road in Daytona Beach at 8:30 AM for a time of Bible study, prayer and fellowship. The group is open to all me of UPC and the men friends of UPC.

Wired Word

Wired Word is an Adult Bible Study class that meets each Sunday at 9 a.m. until 9:45 a.m. in the Disciples Room. This adult class is unique. It is a discussion group, using innovative approach to Bible study called The Wired Word. Each Sunday morning the class reviews an important and interesting news headline from that week selected by a national Wired Word resource team. In the class we think through the "in the news" event in light of four or five relevant Bible passages. With each Bible passage, we discuss a question that makes us ask ourselves, "What is the Bible saying to me about how to live my life as a Christian?" We often focus on," What role does our Christian faith play in the face of challenges and problems that are not easily solved or that will not go away?" Through our reflection on several Bible passages, we explore ideas and talk about some things that could really make a difference in our everyday living.

Waking Up White

Waking Up White is a book that allows attendees to begin a discussion of racism in America and how our unique backgrounds have contributed to the subject of racism. Here at the Presbyterian Church we provide a safe space where there are no judgements... just an opportunity to arm participants with the truth as presented. Our goal is to understand one another... in compassion, in peace, and in truth.
