Welcome to Derry Presbyterian Church!
Welcome to Derry Presbyterian Church. As you explore our website, I think you’ll find a very surprising community of Christian folk. We are blessed with a rich heritage, as the spiritual heirs of Scots-Irish settlers who began gathering under our oak trees for worship almost 300 years ago.
But that is exactly where the surprises begin. Instead of a congregation locked into familiar traditions, Derry is a community of faith marked by joyful variety in its worship – by stimulating, creative Christian education for all ages – by opportunities for youth, from third grade through college, to be part of fellowship groups that minister to one another and others – by hands-on mission outreach locally, nationally, and internationally – and by caring, nurturing support for one another as sisters and brothers in faith.
There is one surprise you won’t find in this website, however – a warm welcome on Sunday morning. As a matter of fact, I receive reports from many visitors that their welcome began even before they got inside! We really do hope you’ll come join us on Sunday as we continue to encourage one another to see and to walk Christ’s Way in the world.
- Rev. Dick Houtz, Pastor
