Jesus is
the light...

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness,
but shall have the light of life. John 8:12

Welcome to
Beech Cumberland
Presbyterian Church

While we may have the oldest contiguous fellowship within the Cumberland Presbyterian Denomination, our worship is not old or dry. We hold to tradition as far as it nurtures faith, but leave room for the Spirit to move in and through us. Per the Rev. Malcolm Patton (former pastor of Beech Church), “We believe that Christianity is not [about being] entertained and being served but worshiping God through serving Him and others. We see life as a Gift from God and what we make of our lives as our Gift back to God and others.” If you would like to be part of a family, we would love for you to come join us in worshiping God and reaching out to others.

Jeff DeWees, Pastor
