MAY 13, 2018

One the most important figures in our lives is mom! Whether she is your mom, or perhaps a special lady who has influenced your life and invested in your future, she deserves to be recognized! At YT, we realize that not all ladies have been able to bear children, yet the fill the role of a motherly role in the life of some child. Therefore, we not only seek to honor mom but "motherhood." 

On this special day, we seek to express our thanks to all of the ladies who are working so hard to make a difference in the life of a child / teen.  Mom, you deserve a day of pampering and appreciation. Join us on this day at YT as we seek to show our gratitude for the lives changed by your daily love and encouragement!  On Sunday, May 13, we want to bless all adult ladies with a special gift. 

This year, w
e will also be taking time in part of our service to hold a dedication service for families with small children. This is a ceremony committed to expressing our need for God's presence and help in the lives of our children. Baby Dedication a time set aside for the church to commit to become partners with parents to assist them in the spiritual training of their children. Parents are also encouraged to commit to raising their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.  If you want to participate in this year's Baby Dedication service, please call the church office at 256.383.6482 to register.

When you visit YT, you will be greeted by loving and welcoming people as soon as you enter the parking lot! All of our guests are encouraged to join in with us as we worship the Lord. The music during the service is always upbeat and blended with both new and old songs, let by a band. If you are looking for a place to believe and belong, you will find it at YTBC!

Dress is primarily casual. Pastor Rodney may wear jeans or khakis each week. While you will still find some with dresses, suits and ties, we never want someone's clothing to prevent them from attending a worship gathering at YT!

Life Groups for all ages begins at 9:45am
