Welcome to Summit Presbyterian Church

We are a diverse and spirited congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA), seeking to proclaim God's love in Christ through word and deed. We gather every Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. We share joys and concerns, pray, sing and hear the Word proclaimed in scripture, sermon and music. 


We come from many different backgrounds, and believe that the journey of faith is full of questions as well as joy. You can learn about our ministries, history and mission on this website. If you would like to worship God in a caring community, come "taste and see"!  You can reach our pastor, Cheryl Pyrch, at (215) 438-2825 or


Sunday services start at 10:00 a.m.

Join us for worship in person or on Zoom! 

Graduation Celebration

On June 23 we will celebrate graduates and all who are "moving up" in school. If you or a member of your family is graduating from middle school, high school, college, graduate school or any other educational program let us know. We will enjoy a light lunch in the yard after the service.

The Summit organ is back! Following damage from a thunderstorm last year, the repair on our organ is finally complete. Thank you to our organ technician Steve Jones for his months of hard work — And join us on Sundays to hear our organist Clara Hong play.

Woman with Bible


On Wednesday evenings from 7:30 - 8:30 we study the scripture passage for Sunday, and then share joys and concerns as we gather for prayer. It’s a chance to connect mid-week and enjoy rich conversation. Access from the worship link above.

Toll the Bell banner_edited_edited.jpg

On Friday June 7, Summit joined with P'nai Or Jewish Renewal Congregation for a service of prayer, silence, and song, as part of the city-wide Toll the Bell sound installation to honor victims of gun violence. We gathered on the Summit lawn, where the Shofar was blown, members of the Summit Bell Choir rang hand bells, and the church bells were rung for five minutes to represent the 1 in 5 families who have lost a member to a gun. Thank you to all who organized and joined this service.
