As a Presbyterian church with a 100+ year history in Cleveland Heights, we owe our form of governance to the Presbyterian Church (USA), the largest Presbyterian denomination in the United States.
We are part of The Presbytery of the Western Reserve, serving churches from Amherst to Ashtabula from their office in downtown Cleveland.
Geographically, we are one of 682 congregations, organized into 11 presbyteries, under the the Synod of the Covenant. The synod offices are located near Toledo, Ohio.
