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 firstname.lastname@example.org

SOCIAL JUSTICE & ENVIRONMENT BOOK GROUP
Join us on Zoom, Tuesday, January 23 at 7:00 p.m. for a discussion of The Lemon Tree by Sandy Tolan. This well-received book, published in 2006, explores the history of Israel/Palestine through the stories of two people: “In 1967, Bashir Al-Khayri, a Palestinian twenty-five-year-old, journeyed to Israel, with the goal of seeing the beloved old stone house, with the lemon tree behind it, that he and his family had fled nineteen years earlier. To his surprise, when he found the house he was greeted by Dalia Ashkenazi Landau, a nineteen-year-old Israeli college student, whose family fled Europe for Israel following the Holocaust.” The book chronicles their friendship of thirty-five years, including the challenges they faced.
