Since its beginnings in the early 1940’s, Yorkfield Presbyterian Church (YPC) has had a strong tradition of focusing on the clear message of the Good News and life of Christ as expressed through worship, spiritual walks, service and continuing growth, including: learning, fellowship, and service to God in the community and beyond. An evangelical priority is to reach out to the un-churched. Reflecting the demographics of Elmhurst and surrounding communities, the congregation spans members of all ages and stages in life. Long standing members offering spiritual maturity and direction work side-by-side with a growing number of young families, youth and new-comers to church. Many are from diverse faith backgrounds spanning Catholic, Methodist, Lutheran, Nazarene and other heritages. Among other reasons, many people who attend YPC say they were attracted by the genuine sense of caring and fellowship starting with their first visits.
