We're glad you came!

Due to COVID-19, Church Services are cancelled thru the end of 2020.

WELCOME TO PHIPPSBURG CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH and our on-line offerings for these unsettled times. Although we are not gathering in person, our Church is not cancelled, because We Are the Church.  

We can still worship and pray together, stay in fellowship, support each other, and care for our community. God is with us. You are not alone. We will get through this together.

---Pastor Holly

The Linden Tree Meeting House Goes Virtual

We've created a private facebook group called "Under the Linden Tree." It an an online space in which to share news, needs, resources, prayer requests, and photos! This is private which means posts can ONLY be seen by invited members. To find the group: go to the Church FB page. Click on "groups" in the sidebar. "Under the Linden Tree" will be listed. Request to join the group. As soon as the administrator approves the request, you'll be able to view, comment and post.

Sunday Mornings: 

Worship will either be livesteamed via Facebook or broadcast via Youtube at 10:00 AM, and available for playback after that. Anyone will be able to access this..we are still working out details, but they will be shared via e-mail, FB and the Church website ASAP.

About Us

We are an Open and Affirming congregation that welcomes all:  every race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, family structure, physical and mental ability, faith background, and economic circumstance.

We take the Bible seriously, but not literally.  Our worship is traditional, but our thinking is not.

Our Location

Like the Linden Tree outside our doors, our congregation has deep local roots: 253 years of service and still branching out!

Strike up a conversation with your pew mates or participate in one of the fun fall events planned like the Deacons Progressive Dinner ( Sept 22) or the Pastor's Fourth Annual Pasture Picnic (Sept. 29-Raindate Oct. 6).

May our Fall Fellowship be as bright and dazzling as the turning leaves will be in the coming weeks!




   Two United Church of Christ national officers were elected on Monday June 24 in Milwaukee. The nomination of the Rev. Georgia Thompson received overwhelming support and she will be Associate General Minister of Global Engagement for four years starting August 1.

   The Rev. John C. Dorhauer, General Minister and President, received support and opposition from the floor to his election. The lengthy debate centered on the issue of returning a white cisgender male to leadership of the denomination. Rev. Dorhauer stated “I deeply appreciate the voices that shared their concerns about my leadership and the extension of the term to another white cisgender male.” He pledged not to seek a third term.
