About Our Church

We are a congregation of over 550 members that welcomes people of all ages to join with us in ministry. We believe we are called to graciously invite people to witness the life changing power of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to encourage spiritual growth, promote enriching worship, foster community, and equip members for faithful service in our church, community, and world.

 

We follow the creeds and confessions of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) (PCUSA.org), and abide by its form of government. Presbuteros, the Greek word meaning elder, is used 72 times in the New Testament. It provides the name for the Presbyterian family of churches. We have eighteen elders (men and women) who along with our pastors and a youth elder, comprise the Session, the governing body of our church. We also have a Board of Deacons, comprised of sixteen members, who assist in ministries of compassion. However, we believe that everyone in our church is called to ministry and we encourage each member to use his or her God-given gifts to serve others.

 

We value the rich heritage of our denomination which established firm roots in America back in 1706 with the first presbytery. We are supportive of the connectional system of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and we are a member church of the Maumee Valley Presbytery, the Synod of the Covenant.
