Women’s Bible Study

Lead by Ascension St. Vincent YMCA’s Colette Meadows and Bonita Stewart, this course covers the Fruit of the Spirit. Each week focus is on a different attribute associated with living in accord to the Holy Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control. Coffee and snacks will be provided each week, during this great opportunity for learning and fellowship.

Pastoral Memberships

The Y is committed not only to our local communities, but to our faith communities as well. Serving as a pastor in a local church can be stressful, and we recognize that. We are here to help by providing clergy membership subsidy and services, giving you, the pastor, a place to come and connect with others, rejuvenate your spirit, or simply to spend quality time with your family.

How can you get involved?

As a pastor, our faithful friends can:

  • Join the Y to restore your spirit, mind, and body.
  • Enjoy respite stay/rental at YMCA Camp Carson during camp’s off-season or help at YMCA Camp Carson where you and your family can stay while leading devotionals in the chapel.
  • Participate in Lunch & Learns for your congregation focusing on Health & Wellness topics.
  • Volunteer to minister to YMCA members and staff.
