Idylwood Presbyterian Church is a welcoming Christian congregation. Thankful for God’s grace and enlivened by the Holy Spirit, we aspire to demonstrate the inclusive and expansive love of Jesus Christ to neighbors near and far.
We are a small, vigorous congregation with members from all around the nation and world. We are blessed with talented musicians, teachers, gardeners, cooks, and builders. Our members include students, artists, engineers, lawyers, medical professionals, government employees, and more.We seek to share the love of Christ with one another and with neighbor and stranger alike. We care for one another in times of need, such as illness or death, but also in ordinary day-to-day activities like baby-sitting for each other's children, social occasions in each others' homes, or sharing the bounties of summer gardens and meals out together.
On Sunday mornings, when we offer an invitation to visitors to become a part of this congregation, we often say that "we are not perfect people." By that we mean that we are not two-dimensional, stained-glass saints, but rather men and women who share the same struggles and have the same questions as everyone else. What we also have in common - in the midst of those struggles and questions - is the desire and the will to be followers of Jesus Christ.

Please join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 11 a.m. so that we can meet face-to-face. Or join us on another occasion--when we make sandwiches for homeless people, when we study together, or when we roll up our sleeves to carry out and to enhance the life of this community of God's people. We look forward to meeting you!
