Welcome to Connellsville Presbyterian Church (EPC)
We are a multi-generational church, located in Connellsville PA, in Fayette County. Connellsville Presbyterian began as a small church in 1829, had its own building by 1849, and merged with other Connellsville Presbyterian churches in 1879 and 1963. For over 180 years, CPC has ministered to the residents of Connellsville and surrounding communities. Connellsville Presbyterian has recently become a full member congregation of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church and is a member of the Presbytery of the Alleghenies, which currently consists of 65 congregations.

FAQs about the EPC.
What is unique about the EPC?
We are unique among American Presbyterians with our self-conscious attempt to balance essential and non-essential matters within a confessional framework. We are unified in our commitment to the essentials of the historic Christian faith taught in the Bible, but allow liberty of conscience on those matters which are not so plain in—or central to—the Bible’s teaching.
What is the EPC's view of the Bible?
We believe that the Bible is fully inspired by God the Holy Spirit to lead people to a saving knowledge of God and to help them understand their world rightly. By its very nature, the Bible is infallible. It is the supreme authority that orders our doctrine and mission.
If winter weather hits Connellsville on a Sunday, while we will still have services at the church, we strongly advise that if the driving conditions near your home are bad, stay at home. We would rather you be safe at home, than at Worship. You can listen to the sermon on this website later on Sunday, and we'll see you at Worship the next week.
When our Faith Finders Wednesday night youth program is in operation, it follows the Connellsville Area School District snow alerts. If bad weather hits later in the day, please tune your TV to WPXI, Channel 11 (Armstrong Ch 11 & 111) for any closing information.
