Legacy Women's Ministry
What is Legacy?
Legacy is the organization in the church that represents the Women's Ministry of Young Meadows Presbyterian Church. We are also part of the Southeast Alabama Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of America.
What is the Purpose of Legacy?
We want our ministry to reflect the past work of Jesus in his life, death, and resurrection; our present walk with Jesus as we live out the gospel in our relationships; and our desire to pass down gospel truths to future generations. With all of that in mind we chose the word, “Legacy” to reflect our VISION for women’s ministry. We liked it so much that we decided to use it as our NAME also. We like that our name and our vision are the same to remind us to stay focused and be intentional.
Who are the members of Legacy?
The membership of Legacy of YMPC consists of every woman who is a member of the church. Our officers are:
President: Micki McCallum
Vice President: Rosemary Gulledge
Secretary/Treasurer: Linda Davis
How can I get involved in Legacy Women's Ministiries?
There are many opportunities for every woman in the church to be involved in Legacy. Here is a short video that explains many of our programs. Below you will find descriptions and resource people who can answer any questions you may have.
City Bible Study: Join women from Young Meadows and women from all over our community as we study God’s Word together. Whether you are a Bible scholar or a Bible novice, you will be challenged and encouraged as delve into the Scriptures verse-by-verse and chapter-by-chapter. Each weekly lesson is divided into 5 sections of homework to encourage daily study. Each section can be completed in less than 30 minutes per day. Then we will come together weekly to discuss in small group what we have learned. Our fall study for is Engaging God's Word: Ruth and Esther. It runs September 4/5-November 13/14. Contact: Palmer Coley at email@example.com.
We have two opportunities to participate:
Tuesday mornings 9:45-11 AM at the church or
Wednesday evenings at 6pm ath the church
Our 246 dinner groups offer a place for women to gather, share a simple meal, and go deeper with one another over real stories and Christ-centered conversations. It's a time for a whole lot of laughter – and maybe a few tears – but time spent that leaves us with glad, full and grateful hearts. Just like the early church in Acts 2:46. Each group meets for 2 hours to discuss 4 questions with 6 or more women. 2-4-6! For more information, contact Kelli Strowd at firstname.lastname@example.org
