Worship

"For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." Matthew 18:20

We invite you to worship with us each and every Sunday morning at 10:30am in person.



Worship at Mountville

We thank Pastor Patrick for his years of service to Mountville as we say goodbye to him. His departure means that we are without a full time pastor. We will still keep our eyes on the Lord and our faith firmly rooted in Christ alone. Worship will continue each Sunday morning. God still has a vital purpose for every service, guest speaker or the ministry of an interim pastor, and it is important for the congregation to remain faithful and engaged, so that God's intended work can be accomplished.

We have the following guest speakers scheduled. Some will be new and some will be good friends to the people of Mountville. All of them have agreed to come and share the word of God and the love of Christ with us.

February 4 - Pastor Tom Meling, retired pastor of Zion Baptist Church

February 11 - Stephen Rubinosky

February 18 - Pastor Don Hurray, retired pastor of Mountville Presbyterian Church

February 25 - Pastor Harper Brady, retired pastor of the Presbytery of the Alleghenies

March 3 - Pastor Peggy Suhr Barkley, local retired Lutheran minister

March 10 - Gary Jackson, local retired teacher & lay minister

March 17 - Dave Fox, licensed/credentialed Assemblies of God minister

March 24, 10:30am - Pastor Don Hurray, retired pastor of Mountville Presbyterian Church

March 24, 7:00pm - Community Palm Sunday service

March 31, 10:30am - Brian Lasko, Ruling Elder of Mountville Presbyterian Church

A Typical Service

We meet together to praise and worship the one true God. Our services have traditional elements including hymns accompanied by both organ and piano. Some services also include contemporary arrangements and special music presented by the Mountville choir, small groups, or soloists.

Our services include families with small children as well as those old enough to be grandparents and great grandparents. We believe that children are a sign that the church is growing, so we would rather have noisy children than no children at all. However, there is a play area downstairs for when it is needed. Some people come to worship wearing jeans and t-shirts, and others come wearing dresses or suits. All are welcome.

There is a ramp as well as stairs to access the main door. In the sanctuary, there are large monitors on the front wall to display the order of service, song lyrics, scripture, announcements, etc. as well as a printed paper bulletin. The sound system has recently been upgraded. On the sanctuary level, there is a handicap accessible restroom.
