Welcome PicFriends,

Three Chopt Presbyterian Church is affectionately known as "TCPC." We invite you to worship with us and discover for yourself the unique community of faith that is TCPC. You will find a compassionate group of people who will welcome you with genuine warmth and quickly consider you to be part of the TCPC family. Here you will find teens and active retirees working side by side, sharing laughter while on mission in the inner city. In worship, beloved hymns sung by our choir are accompanied by traditional organ or more contemporary tunes are heard with guitars, saxophones and percussion. New friends are embraced and included even as strong bonds keep long-timers connected over many decades.

Join us on this journey of discipleship as we share the good news of God's love and grace to the world.

Please contact us or click on about us to give a member of the TCPC staff your questions, comments and requests!

In Christ,   Brenda

Dr. Brenda Halbrooks
Pastor / Head of Staff
