Presbytery of Lake Erie -- Mission Statement

“Empowered and guided by the Holy Spirit through

scripture, our confessions, and conscience

the Presbytery of Lake Erie journeys with

congregations, ruling elders and teaching elders as we

live, grow, fellowship and witness to

the work of God through Jesus Christ

in today’s changing world.

Recognizing that we are called to serve all of God’s children,

we do this through shared

prayer, worship, training, evangelism, and mission

                                    to strengthen the dynamic Body of Christ.”



Installation of Rev. Nicola Vitiello

Rev. Nicola Vitiello was installed as the pastor of the Girard Presbyterian Church on December 8.  It was a wonderful service of celebration as Rev. Keith Sundberg delivered the sermon and Rev. Andy Holmes provided the charge to the congregation.  Rev. Vitiello has been serving for some time as the Temporary Supply pastor of the Girard congregation.  Congratulations on this installation!







Welcome to the website of the Presbytery of Lake Erie!  These are exciting times in the life of the church.  Come and join with one of the 58 congregations in this presbytery as they testify to the reconciling power of God in their lives!  The Presbyterian Church seeks to be a community reconciled to God through Christ.


To be reconciled to God is to be sent into the world as his reconciling community.  This community, the church universal, is entrusted with God’s message of reconciliation  … Wherever the church exists, its members are both gathered in corporate life and dispersed in society for the sake of mission in the world.


  -The Confession of 1967


Come and discover what God is up to in our midst – worshipping faithfully, serving and compassionately and living powerfully for God!
