Yachats Community Presbyterian ChurchYachats Community Presbyterian Church
Simply put, YCPC is a community of faith, gathered in response to God’s call on our lives; doing the best we can to worship, witness and serve our community.
We realize that for many, walking into a church for the first time can be a daunting experience; full of promise, but also full of uncertainty.
Others may have been wounded by the church and made to feel unloved, unworthy of love and unwelcome.
Rest assured that EVERYONE who passes through our doors is welcome. You do not need to be a Presbyterian by upbringing or practice. In fact you need not be a Christian. Whoever you are, wherever you are on your journey, you are welcome.
We are an inclusive, welcoming, come-as-you are, Christ centered community of faith. As such, we recognize that those who worship with us come from many different faith traditions, and some from no tradition at all. Accordingly, our worship is fairly informal and we encourage you to engage with it in whatever way you feel comfortable.
We are a spiritual community of different minded believers, sharing one heart. We strive for justice and peace among all people, and bring support and hope to those that Jesus called the least of his sisters and brothers.
We invite everyone to participate in our worship, in our communion, and in our community.
“Everyone” includes believers and agnostics, conventional Christians and questioning skeptics, LGBTQ and straight, female, males or non binary, Jews and Gentiles, the despairing and the hopeful, and any other descriptor that may fit you.
