We welcome Rev. Christopher W. Mathewson to our pulpit this week. We have engaged Rev. Mathewson as a consultant to work with Redeemer Presbyterian Church and to aid us in developing our mission to the Greater Erie community.

Having studied at Calvin College, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Harvard Divinity School, Rev. Mathewson has a passion for helping churches discover how they can effectively become missional in today’s post-Christian/post-modern world.

Along with his wife Lisa, he has served churches in Massachusetts, New York, and Pennsylvania. Christopher and Lisa have two children: Luke (4) and Beth (2) and a Black Lab (Tucker).

We look forward to hearing the message God has laid on Rev. Mathewson’s heart to share with us.


We welcome anyone who wishes to join us for worship.

Please note: The first floor of the building is handicapped accessible
by entering the door at the intersection of 7th Street and Cascade.
