“To live God’s love and show God’s grace through worship, fellowship and outreach.”
We organized in 1854 under the direction of the New River Presbytery. Today we are a Presbyterian Church (USA) church in the Abingdon Presbytery in the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic.
We strive to be a community of Jesus Christ where you are welcome to be yourself, where you are able to seek answers to your faith and life questions, and where you are able to put your faith into action serving in Jesus’ name. Our vision for ministry can be seen in the areas of worship, teaching, and outreach. Through worship we offer a traditional service with a strong music program and a multisensory approach to allow the congregation to grow in the spirit of Christ. Our sanctuary supports the hearing impaired and is handicapped accessible. Through a renewed emphasis on adult education, we maintain a Sunday School class while offering a weekly evening class focusing on current humanitarian need. As outreach, we support several long- standing National and International mission partnerships. We serve our local community addressing food insecurity, improved wellness, and sharing fellowship through the love of music.
