A Welcome from Our Pastor

I am glad that you have stopped by our website to learn about us and our story. I also want to extend an invitation to get to know who we are, by visiting with us. On Sunday mornings we gather at 10:00 a.m.; to worship God, to celebrate together in community, and to find ourselves equipped for God’s mission in the world.

My name is Jeff McLain and I started here as the Associate Pastor in 2013. A few years later, I became Lead Pastor of this growing faith community. Through our website, you can learn more about me and our other leadership.

As a church, our vision is to be a community that is learning to live and love like Jesus in our neighborhood of East Petersburg, PA. I love how our vision illustrates and captures both our commitment to Jesus, and a dedication to being in our neighborhood.

First, we are committed to Jesus. God sent Jesus to announce, embody, and demonstrate a new way for us to live and love. Through Jesus, we also find the good news and goodness of God’s presence and his Kingdom.

Second, we are dedicated to being in our neighborhood. Our church has been in this neighborhood since 1720, and we love being invested and present in this emerging main street community. I also love living here with my family. In 2015, our family moved into the neighborhood and we deeply love our neighbors, our town’s events and living in the Borough of East Petersburg.

Thanks for stopping by to get to know us. I look forward to getting to know you and your story. More importantly, I hope you get to know Jesus. We are here for you.

Pastor Jeff McLain
