Description of Organization

Murrysville Community Church is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America. Murrysville is a little more than 20 minutes east of Pittsburgh, PA. 

We are averaging 180 people in weekly attendance during our worship service and have approximately 300 people on our membership rolls. We are generationally very diverse, with nearly 30 children attending worship on Sunday mornings. We have around 20 kids that attend our weekly Middle School and High School ministry called Student Fellowship. We also have a children's ministry called Powered Up, that meets for two 10-week sessions serving between 30 and 40 elementary age children. These children come from both churched and unchurched families. 

Those are just a few highlights of what the Lord is up to in our midst. You can learn more by visiting our website at
