What We Do:
In short, we do a lot. We do our best to serve one another and serve the Morgantown community and demonstrate the love and grace of God as we serve. We emphasize the following areas of the life of our church:
Worship & Music
Weekly and seasonal worship are the primary way we gather. We celebrate weekly services as well as special services during Christmas, Advent, Easter, and Lent. Music is a very important part of our worship expression. We have a choir, organ, piano bells, and special music each week. There are always opportunities to help lead worship by helping with the liturgy, reading scripture, sound & projection, children's area, etc.
This is a fancy church word for doing good for others. We serve the Morgantown community by providing a pancake Breakfast every Sunday, offering a Warm Room during cold months, and providing support for in-need and hunger insecure community members. We also partner with a number of local organizations, such as Empty Bowls, Greater Morgantown Interfaith Association, Appalachian Prison Book Project, Christian Help, PFLAG (Parents & Families of Lesbian and Gay), Pantry Plus More, Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and many more.
Presbyterian Child Development Center
Another aspect of our mission work is the PCDC - which provides low-cost day care services for working families. Our day care has had consistent leadership and teachers for many years, and we pride ourselves on the stable environment and quality of care and nurture the children receive from our diverse staff. You can learn more about PCDC on their website - HERE.
We host Sunday School for adults each week at 9:45am and a unique-kid focused program called CLUED UP each Sunday at 10:35am in the sanctuary. We also have Bible Workshop that meets every Tuesday at 11:00a at the church called Pastor's Bible Workshop and then another group meeting at 7:00p at Black bear Burritos, Evansdale. There are many other opportunities for education that occur at various times and seasons. Please check our church calendar for a full list of upcoming events and group gatherings!
The WVUKirk-PSF is an open and affirming fellowship on the campus of West Virginia University. The PSF at WVU meets every Wednesday during the school year at 7:00 pm at the Campus Ministry Center, located right down the hill from Arnold Hall at 293 Willey St. We start with a FREE dinner around 7:00 pm and program around 7:36 pm.

Our newest ministry is the Harless Center at Central Place project. Central Place is a 234 bed apartment complex next door to the church. Connected to Central Place is the Harless Center whose mission is to help students be grounded in their faith and belief and develop an appreciation for other faith traditions of their neighbors.
