Huntingdon Valley Presbyterian Church (HVPC) was founded at our current location in 1861, when the surrounding area was dotted with family farms and Huntingdon Pike was a dirt toll road. In the 1950s, farms gave way to suburban development and HVPC went from being a small village church to a large suburban church with many ministries. In 1974, HVPC established Valley Christian School (www.VCSkids.com), which now serves nearly 150 students from pre-K through eighth grade. HVPC today is a healthy, growing mid-sized, multi-racial, all-ages congregation, gathering each week in two distinctive worship services.
