Medina Presbyterian Church is a congregation of followers of Jesus Christ. We believe he is the hope of the world, and in his name we welcome all those who come seeking him. We believe the purpose of the church in the world is to glorify God by making disciples and meeting human need. We are working to become more faithful disciples ourselves, and we encourage others to join us in that effort. We listen for God’s Word from the pages of scripture, and open ourselves to the transforming power of God’s Holy Spirit.
The Rev. Dr. Henry Pearce, Pastor
We believe in the power of praying with and for one another and we offer members and visitors alike access to our prayer chain.

Upcoming Services & Events
Consistent with our practice throughout the pandemic, our intent is to follow the orders of our Governor and our local health officials. Therefore, effective immediately, we have suspended in-person worship services. The suspension will remain in place until the guidance from the authorities is relaxed.
Our online worship service will continue uninterrupted on this website.
We invite you to join us in online worship each week. The service is recorded ahead of time with both video and audio only files available for viewing at a time that fits your schedule. The links to the newest worship service are posted to this site each Sunday morning by 8am.
We’ve come to the busiest season of the church year, and there are a variety of important mission projects getting underway — projects that make a difference in the lives of others, and projects you’re invited to share as you are able.
Our project to provide Christmas Head Start Shoeboxes is continuing under adapted circumstances. A packing station has been set up in the church where volunteers can come and work alone or in household groups packing shoeboxes. (Please call the church or Henry before you come to make sure there’s not someone already packing.) The need is especially great for lots of these kids this year because of the pandemic, and because our church partners are limited in how much they can help. The updated list of items needed for the shoeboxes can be accessed here. A plastic bin has been placed to the right of the front door of the church for your contact-free donations. If you prefer to support the program financially, you can send a check marked “Shoeboxes,” and we’ll do the shopping for you.
On Saturday, November 21, our deacons’ food baskets were delivered to 60 needy families around the area. Financial contributions to this effort are still gratefully received. Each basket cost about $50, and you’re invited to contribute all or part of the cost of a basket. Donations can be marked for “Deacons’ Food Baskets.”
The deacons’ annual produce drive for the County Home was also completed November 21, and the resulting load of produce was delivered at the beginning of the week.
Our annual Christmas Candy-Making Project has been cancelled for this year out of concern for the number of workers required. But fear not — some safer alternative arrangements for candy-based fundraising are being explored. Watch for word on those efforts.
