History

Since 1858, Pine Street has been a powerful force for good in the Harrisburg community. From feeding the hungry and homeless of Harrisburg to exalting God through worship, music, and the related arts, the ministries of the church are as strong today as ever.

1858

Pine Street Presbyterian Church was founded in 1858 as a group of forty-two members led by James McCormick, Jr. They erected an elegant Gothic Revival church designed by Luther M. Simon at Third and Pine streets and laid the cornerstone in 1859. Worship services during the first year were held in various places around town, including the Senate chamber of the Capitol.
