Worth the Drive
We know you might pass a few other church buildings on the way to ours. While our location is beautiful, (located right across the road from Canoe Creek State Park,) we know it might be a little bit of a drive for you. But our people drive from Hollidaysburg, Altoona, Duncansville, Williamsburg, and even Huntingdon! Why? Well, it's a little hard to explain . . .
Maybe it's because it feels like family here. Our people have a deep commitment to each other and to following Jesus locally and globally. New people are cherished, and we are growing. We come from all kinds of backgrounds; white collar, blue collar, highly educated to to those that struggle in math class, wealthy to broke. We aren't stuffy or fake. We laugh all the time. We cry a lot when someone is in trouble. You are much more likely to see someone in a Steelers jersey than in a suit and tie. Folks show up early to share a cup of coffee and talk. We love to eat together, and have the best collection of cooks you have ever met! There is a deep sense of that we belong together, in spite of the difference in our backgrounds.
We know it may mean a little longer drive to visit us, but think it's worth the drive. We think you will too.
A church is not a building. A church is the group of people. We gather together to help one another, love one another, and encourage one another. Where we meet is just a building. We call our building a “meeting house” because of this reason. The church is the people.
We look forward to meeting you!
