Our denomination is governed in part by the actions taken by delegates to the General Assembly which meets every 2 years. They met in Pittsburgh last summer and our own elder Carol Waters participated along with local pastors Tara Thompson (St. Johns PC) and Tim Simpson (Lake Shore PC) and others from St. Augustine Presbytery. You can click on the logo to read a summary of the Assembly, and click here to learn more about the elected moderator, Neal Preza. Most of all, please PRAY that the PCUSA will discern how we are to live faithfully according to God's will as revealed in scripture in these challenging times - the summary indicates how un-unified we are with the statement, "Rarely were votes taken that had a wider margin than 60%-40%."
Come see MHPC's Giving Tree, a new way to contribute to God's mission & ministry beyond your normal offerings. The tree is filled with leaves of opportunity to provide items for outreach and church needs, and more information is available by contacting us or joining us for activities.

Video of our Services & Sermons: We
record digital video of our services every week. If you want a DVD let
Pastor Drew know (free, what a deal!). Older ones are posted on Vimeo.com, but we stopped uploading them last May- if you would like to get recent ones, email Pastor Drew and he'll get you what you need. CLICK ON THE VIMEO LOGO to go to the video site.
NOTE that if videos start & stop for you it is because your
internet connection is downloading slower than your computer is playing
it (so it has to "catch up"). At&t DSL is not really high speed (more like "medium" speed) like they say, that's usually why. Start playing, hit pause, and wait several minutes and you should be able to watch smoothly.
don't have a professional video editor on staff or the time to devote
to making "perfect" videos, but the quality of videos and audio are
getting better as we tweak more each week, keep checking here. Streaming
live one of these days...

Avenue. The main parking lot is on Talbot. Make sense? If not,
Just what DO Presbyterians believe? >>> (Pastor Drew says what's important is not so much what WE choose to believe about the mysteries of God and our existence, but what GOD believes about that. Nevertheless, we strive to have a better understanding of such mysteries based on the entirety of scripture, the witness of generations and the faith which God graciously instills in us...)
