About Us

Who We Are

Founded in 1772, and then “reborn” in 1949, the Old Presbyterian Meeting House is today an active and vibrant congregation of more than 1,000 members.
 

Our Mission

The Old Presbyterian Meeting House exists in response to God’s grace, comforted and challenged by the Gospel of Christ, enlivened and led by the fresh insights of the Holy Spirit to glorify God by recruiting new disciples, renewing the faith of existing disciples, and reaching out in love and service to the world God so loves.  In so doing, we challenge people to think with the mind of Christ, love with the heart of Christ, and serve with the hands of Christ in every aspect of their lives.  

We gather in worship and mission celebrating our differences as we praise God with dignity, laughter, and joy. We also work with Christians and congregations of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) as well as other Christian churches to respond to the good news of salvation and work toward God’s reign in all life and to be a telling presence of God’s goodness and grace.

Our Vision

We will create an environment where people are welcome to:
