To honor the historic richness and simplicity of our sanctuary in light of our desire to revitalize the worship space as the church moves forward. Our church building, circa 1868, is the oldest Disciples of Christ sanctuary in PA and WV!

Lone Pine Christian Church
We gather in the sanctuary for worship Sunday morning, bible study, prayer team meetings, VBS, our Wednesday family ministry (Spirit Uniting People or SUP), dinner waiting area and sometimes overflow eating area, weddings, funerals, baptisms and more!
We prayerfully desire that our sanctuary be an inviting gathering place for worship, in keeping with God’s call to us.
We seek to revitalize our historic meeting house, so that it serves as a beacon of faith and hope in our community

In order to fund these projects and complete the renovation of our worship space, we will need
your help. Your faithful support through pledges and donations over and above your weekly giving, will determine the need for borrowing money to complete the project.
Over the last 18 months, your church board and renovation committee have done their homework with a historic preservationist, an architect, a financial consultant from the Disciples Church Extension Fund, a survey and a feasibility study, small group meetings, prayer books, letters & emails. We have looked at multiple scenarios and considered numerous alternatives. Your financial support is needed to help complete the project.
