ABOUT US

Wekiva Presbyterian Church emphasizes a Christian life based upon Worship, Study, Fellowship, and Community Services. We seek to model Jesus Christ in our words and actions, wherever God's Spirit may lead us.


Wekiva Presbyterian Church was founded in 1977 and is located near the intersection of State Route 434 and Wekiva Springs Road in Longwood, Florida. Our congregation consists of all age groups with a large number of young families from Longwood, Altamonte Springs, Apopka, Lake Mary, Heathrow, Maitland, and Orlando.

Church activities are designed to provide each member or visitor with every opportunity to share their Spiritual Gifts among their families, congregation and our community.

Our Beliefs

About the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is a Christian community centered around the six “Great Ends of the Church.”

#1

The Proclamation of the Gospel. We believe that the good news of God's love in Jesus Christ is for all the peoples of the world.

#2

Building up Christian community. We strive to develop loving, caring, inclusive congregations that show the love of God through prayer, nurture, mutual support, and Christian service.

#3

The Worship of God. We respond to God's love through worship by praising God, praying together, and responding to God's word.

#4

Theology Matters. Presbyterians love God with both their hearts and their minds, and thus seek to study the scripture and affirm together the sovereignty of God, the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit.

#5

The Promotion of Social Justice. We have been saved in order to serve! We believe in and work for social, racial, and economic justice for all of God's peoples.

#6

Demonstrating our Faith. Presbyterians seek to be a people who practice what they preach.

Want to worship with us?

Our worship schedule includes two Sunday morning services in the Sanctuary: the first service at 9:00 (Wekiva Aliva) and the second service at 11:00 (Traditions). While we appreciate our heritage, we are not stodgy—our inspiring music and worship reflect the living church in every age, including today. Wekiva celebrates communion on the first Sunday of even-number months and there are many other special worship events throughout the year. Special services include Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Sunrise Service, Thanksgiving Eve (an Ecumenical Service held jointly with five area churches) and three services on Christmas Eve.
