Rev. Nicola Vitiello


Greetings. Welcome to the church website.

On July 22, 2018 our historic church building was destroyed by a fire,  HOWEVER we, "the church", are still present in Girard.

The many contributions and prayers that we have received from churches, businesses, and individuals continue to bless us. We are committed to continuing our ministry in Girard and rebuilding plans are in progress. Thank You for your ongoing support!

We are a caring community of folks of all ages who gather each week to joyfully worship God. Our worship service style is traditional, with some contemporary songs sung on some Sundays. On the first Sunday of the month, communion is usually observed.

We have had a bell choir, chancel choir, men’s breakfast group, women’s group, and Sunday school classes for all ages, including nursery care.

We are part of the PCUSA but do not hold to the liberal beliefs of some in our denomination. Please contact the church with any questions you may have.

My door is open and we pray that God will lead people to our church who will feel welcome and become part of this church family.
