Welcome to Our ChurchGet Directions
Our church is indeed deeply rooted, having been chartered in 1714! We are a part of the mainline denomination known as the Presbyterian Church (USA). Our life together as a community of faith is grounded in our weekly worship which is rich in tradition as well as open to new expressions. Our worship is greatly enhanced by our music ministry, including a chancel choir, an intergenerational choir, a children's choir and two bell choirs. Our gratitude to God keeps us continually reaching out to our community both near and far, as we answer Christ's call to serve.
We are celebrating our 300th anniversary this year, and have planned events throughout the year, with two special weekends in particular: June 7 - a street fair, which was well received, and Sept. 6-7 - our special anniversary weekend with a dinner theater and two special services: morning at 11:00 am; afternoon at 3:00 pm. This website has lots of information about our plans. Please explore!
We invite you to come and worship with us! We welcome all to our fellowship and look forward to getting to know you.
