Who we are
Penn Wynne is a small, loving, and informal church. When you enter our doors you will find a sanctuary where Jesus is treasured, people are loved, and compassion is extended. We welcome people from all church backgrounds or none at all, including friends from all racial and ethnic backgrounds, as well as members of the LGBTQIA and 12 Step communities. In our congregation we respect diversity, understanding that everyone arrives at different points at different times in their spiritual journey. We value what each person brings to the table knowing that every person is a
beloved child of God.
We are small but mighty. We are faithful and God-loving. We are many hearts walking together.
We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you with open arms.
What to expect
Our Church Service begins at 10:00 am
We are a relaxed group. You will find people wearing everything from suits and ties to jeans and shorts. We believe it is more important that you are here, than what you wear. We want you to feel at home
We have Sunday School and Child Care! Children up to grade 5 are excused to go to Sunday School following the Children’s Sermon. We also have care for infants age 2 and under. If parents prefer to keep their children with them in church they are also welcome to do so. Coloring pages and crayons are available.
We have coffee and cookies after church. This is when we catch up on what is going on in each other’s lives. Friendships blossom here.
We are a small, intimate congregation. While our numbers aren’t large, we are a diverse group. On any given Sunday you will see young families, senior citizens, and single folk . . . come as you are you will be welcome here.

Why We Love PWPC
Stephanie and Cory
We were drawn to this church from the witty signs and kept showing up every week because of the friendly, welcoming community! This church is really something special; it fosters acceptance as well as continual learning from all of the church member’s different backgrounds. As a lesbian couple we feel comfortable and embraced by the community here, we will continue to spread the love and acceptance that we receive at this church throughout our everyday lives!
My friend brought be to Penn Wynne Presbyterian Church during a very dark time in my life so I could find God again. Not only did I find God, but I found an incredible loving and healing community which has lifted my spirit to the point where I can love myself again and feel God's love everywhere.
Helen, Lucy, and Joshua
Helen (mom): I love Penn Wynne because of my pastor who makes me feel so at home. The Word of God that comes from her is very powerful and great, and we all feel like we are family. Lucy (grandmom): Penn Wynne is not just a church it is like a family. You feel love around everybody. Joshua (age 10): We’re all family mixed into one and everybody comforts everyone when they are sad and is there for each other.
The first time that I walked into Penn Wynne Presbyterian I received such a warm welcome that I immediately felt at home. During worship service, my toddler can go to Sunday School or happily stay in the Sanctuary with me if he chooses. Sunday service keeps me uplifted and mindful of my place in the world throughout the week.
Wolchuk Family – Why We Love PWPC
I had no intention of joining a church let alone attending one, and yet this is where you can find me most Sundays not to mention Saturdays for the Crochety Knitwits. I was working one day and my small kids dragged my husband into the church service while on a walk. As a family with 2 small children and no family to assist or pinch hit, PWPC immediately welcomed us and our kids into their family. Initially I got babysitters and surrogate grandparents in the deal. Now I have an extended family that I couldn’t live without.
