Who Are We

in christ's love, we connect, serve, and transform

In the service of Jesus Christ, we are a dynamic, growing, regional congregation whose vision is to love God; to nurture faith and spiritual growth; and to welcome, embrace, and serve each other, the community beyond, and a world we cannot yet imagine.
Worthington Presbyterian Church is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA), located on the Village Green in Worthington, Ohio.

We believe that no matter what our backgrounds or our experiences, we're all beloved children of God, interconnected through Jesus Christ. Empowered by God's Spirit, and in gratitude for the love that God has shown us, each of us can make a difference in the world around us in ways large and small. You'll find many ministries and programs that can help deepen your relationship with God and others. Come and join us - all are welcome here!

Serving Greater Columbus & Central Ohio 

While membership is centered around Worthington, we also draw people from throughout Columbus. Beyond our regional geography, the livestream of our Sunday worship is regularly viewed by many throughout the country.

Our members include lifelong Presbyterians (some of whom have been part of this congregation for their entire lives), those who have “migrated” from different faith traditions, and others for whom WPC is their first formal religious affiliation.

Everything we do intends to spread God’s love to others beyond our congregation. We are actively engaged in ministries in hunger, education, and justice – all things that might show the world a “glimpse of the Kingdom of Heaven.”

Who's In Charge Here?

The Presbyterian pattern of church government, which vests governing authority primarily in elected members known as eldersThe body of elders elected to govern a particular congregation is called a sessionThe primary body governing a Presbyterian congregation is the Session,  a “council of Elders.” These are people elected by the congregation to serve in terms of three years. Pastors are also members of the session. Regional governance beyond the congregation is found in Presbytery, where decisions are made by representatives of each congregation in equal numbers of Elders and Ministers.
