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.
