Welcome to McDonald Presbyterian Church

Welcome!  We are a mid-sized congregation located in McDonald, PA that exists to honor God by making more disciples for Jesus Christ.  Our worship, service and outreach are all focused on helping others experience the love of God and the joy that comes from knowing him.  We love what we do and the community of people that we are together.  Our door is always open and we look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our fellowship.

Coronavirus Update - April 6, 2020

Dear McDonald Presbyterian Church Family,

Our facility will be closed for all meetings and gatherings through April 30, 2020.  We will continue a live stream service with a small group of musicians, a lay leader and myself at our regular time of 10:45am.  Please be cautious when around others and maintain as much social distance as possible.

We are using Facebook Live for our streaming service.  If you do not have a facebook account it is very easy to set one up and you do not have to load in friends and use it as a social platform if you choose not to.  If you have a family member who can set up your phone, computer, or tablet to live stream the service I think you will find it to be very rewarding.  At this time the service audio file will not be available on our website.   Our online services have been very well received and we are so encouraged by your responses.  The recording of past services and all future services can be accessed here: www.facebook.com/mcdonaldpres

Bulletin & Announcements are emailed out each week and also posted on our facebook page.

Lenten Devotional Reading Plan is available here: Lenten Devotional

Along with the cancelation of a public worship service all other events have been canceled or postponed through April 30th including:

Please keep investing in your spiritual well being during this season.  Use your Lenten devotional guide to keep you connected to the Word and we may even become creative in sharing ideas for family worship out to you.

Pray for all those around the world impacted by this virus and for our own church family members health and safety.  In this quickly changing environment know that your financial support of our congregation is greatly appreciated and will continue to make a big impact for the Kingdom.  this might be a good time to set up a direct bill pay from your bank to our church or to utilize the online giving system that we have in place through our website.

Our Lord Jesus Christ is firmly in control and we trust him for all things in all times and in all places.  May the Lord protect you and yours as we do all we can to prevent the spread of this disease.

What We Believe

  • We believe that life is lived best in the context of a Church family that loves Jesus.
  • We believe that no one should be alone in this world and that we exist to serve and bless one another.
  • We believe that salvation through Jesus Christ is the one and only way to truly know God and to be accepted by him.
  • We believe that children should be taught the faith of Jesus Christ in a dynamic and fun setting so that they have every opportunity to thrive and be spiritually healthy throughout their lives. 
  • We believe that no person regardless of their circumstances has fallen so far from God that they cannot find peace with him.
  • We believe in the evangelical and reformed doctrines of our denomination as expressed in the Essential Tenets of the ECO.

Focused on Children and Youth

From our Sunday School Program that meets during the school year to numerous special events there is always something happening at MPC for our Children.  We have reNEW Wednesday nights for Students in 5th grade and above and other special activities for our Junior and Senior High students.  Little ones have nursery care on Sunday Mornings and Children's Church for kids age 4-third grade.  We seek to invest heavily in the lives of our children and love seeing them develop into young men and women who love the Lord with all of their heart.
