Preserve to Serve
Christ. Church. Community
.

This capital campaign is to enable McKeesport Presbyterian Church to continue its mission to be “God’s Lighthouse of Hope” in a distressed world by being a vital and culturally diverse congregation which models Christ’s love in our neighborhood and around the globe.

McKeesport Presbyterian Church provides more than $125,000 per year in goods and services to house these community programs:


  • Ventures in People (VIP) - Free After School Program for children in Grades 1-5,
  • Head Start - Two Classrooms operated by the Allegheny Intermediate Unit
  • Narcotics Anonymous
  • Valley Voices
  • Music Club
  • A Second Chance Inc.
  • McKeesport 7th Ward Community Group
  • Christian Community Connection

Why do a capital campaign now?


Our entire building is a sanctuary, not just the chamber with the altar.


There comes a time when all buildings require costly maintenance. Our church is no exception. Leaking water and loose plaster are a distraction from a “sanctuary”. The improvements to be financed by the campaign will continue to provide those programs currently using our building and another generation of the community and our members with the same safe haven that we have enjoyed. The exterior improvements will also provide the community a strong visual example of the vitality possible through a commitment to our location.

Work to be done:


  • Replace the mortar between the stones and cleaning of exterior stones ($150,000)
  • Replace old windows in the educational wing used by Head Start ($60,000)
  • Repair plaster cracks and repaint the sanctuary ($27,000)
  • Replace exterior signs ($15,000)
  • Repairing interior water damage and repaint educational wing ($20,000)
