Who We Are – Our History

Who We Are – Our History

Pewee Valley, Kentucky, is a suburban village in Oldham County, just outside East Louisville.  In November of 1866, a committee from the Presbytery of Louisville (now Mid-Kentucky Presbytery) formally organized the United Presbyterian Church of Pewee Valley.  A year after the formal organization, the present sanctuary was completed and we’ve been worshipping God in this space ever since!

Building on a Solid Foundation from Pewee Valley Presbyterian Church

We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA), the largest Presbyterian denomination in the United States, formed from the merger of the United Presbyterian Church in the United States of America (UPCUSA) and the Presbyterian Church in the United States (PCUS).

Central to the faith journey that we share is the conviction that God comes to us in free and undeserved favor in the person of Jesus Christ who lived, died, and rose for us that we might belong to God and serve Christ in the world.  More than two million people call the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) their spiritual home.  Worshiping in 10,000 Presbyterian congregations throughout the United States, we engage the communities in which we live and serve with God’s love.


At PVPC, we measure ourselves by the teachings of Christ.  This means that no one is a stranger and everyone is a child of God.  We hope you’ll worship with us and join us in experiencing the great love God has for you!
