  • Little Bell Ringers

    We are looking for any child 4 yrs. and up who would like to ring bells during our morning worship. They will ring on the 3rd Sunday of each month at the beginning of our worship service. The remaining dates for 2015 are Oct. 18, Nov. 15, and Dec. 20. Practice is on the same Sunday you ring at 9:40 AM in the DeWitt Room of the church. What could be easier than that, practice and ringing on the same day.

  • "The Story" Comes to Towanda

    Join us every Sunday as we explore "The Story" -- a journey through God's Word told chronologically. We will then dive deeper into "The Story" by complementing sermons with Sunday school and Bible study lessons on the same theme, week by week. Want to know the broad scope of the Scriptures better? Then make "The Story" part of your story!

  • Denomination Renewal

    The Denomination Renewal Team has been meeting to determine the choices our congregation has as a result of the changes the PC (USA) has made regarding church policy. We have several options to consider if the congregation chooses to leave the PC (USA). Two of the denominations being studied at this time are ECO (Evangelical Covenant Order of Presbyterians) and EPC (Evangelical Presbyterian Church). For more information about these denominations click on the "Renewal" tab on the home page.
