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.
Everyone is invited to join us after Worship on December 17th for our annual Christmas dinner. Roast beef, ham, and mashed potatoes will be provided, and everyone is encouraged to bring a salad, side dish, or dessert to share. We hope to see you there!

We are blessed with the opportunity to be the coordinators for the
McDonald Service Unit of the Salvation Army. With the help of the community, we
raise funds from Thanksgiving Eve until Christmas. It is a sacrifice of time to
serve but a great investment in our community. Each year about $8,000 is
donated to be shared with those in need.
All of the contributions go directly toward helping members of our own
community with bills, coats, shoes, assistance to Meals on Wheels and more. Please use the link on the church website
(www.mcdonaldpres.org) or call the church office to sign up and serve. Thank you!
Attend Worship with us at
10:45 a.m. in Calvary Center or from wherever you are at: www.facebook.com/mcdonaldpres
Come and celebrate all the goodness of the Lord Jesus who is full of grace and mercy!

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.
- 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.
Our church family takes the great commandments of Jesus to heart as we seek to love the Lord our God with all of our hearts and to live that out by loving our neighbors as ourselves. Our church calendar is filled with mission projects and opportunities that everyone can get involved in. Learn more about them here.
