Who Are We

We are still proud that our founding pastor marched in Selma in 1965.

We are also proud that we provided worship space to a Jewish congregation struggling to build a synagogue in a determinedly Christian community.

We have married several same-sex couples and the congregation recently elected a member of one of those couples to serve on the ruling council of the church.

We have constructed seven solar-powered water purification systems in Haiti to save children from water-borne illness.

We maintain a vegetable garden totally dedicated to raising hot peppers for refugee families from south-east Asia.

We are a “host congregation” for Family Promise of Western Pennsylvania, which provides homeless families (including teenage children) with the opportunity to stay together while they transition to alternative housing and employment.

We have welcomed an African-American Baptist congregation to worship in our chapel following the loss of their historic church due to flooding.

We have deliberately remained in the mainline Presbyterian Church (USA) to help guide it toward greater racial and sexual equality.
