In partnership with Pine Bluff pool, we had a great Trunk-or-Treat at the church on October 29, with over 22 children and their responsible adults. Thanks to all the volunteers, including the dedicated souls who decorated their trunks!



What a fun day of VBS we had in July of 2023. It was a joy to have children learning and engaging in our Sunday School rooms and outside on this beautiful day. 



We had a blessed Easter Sunday in 2023, welcoming guests from Westminster PC and from Smyrna PC for our sunrise service, enjoying fellowship with one another and guests for a delicious breakfast, and then worshipping God together in our sanctuary service.

Christ is Risen!.

He is Risen, indeed.

Nancy Mader presented six dozen cookies to Mrs. Donna Alexander in support of the Wednesday Religious Education team meeting to be held at Verona United Methodist Church in April 2023. WRE is supporting students of the Augusta County school system, and some additional areas, after two years of inactivity due to Covid-related cautions and restrictions.

Helping our Kentucky Neighbors with Needful Items - August 3, 2022

Hermitage members rose to the occasion to help those in need. An email went out Tuesday at midnight and Wednesday, two-plus cars were loaded to add to what was collected by Glen Kirk Presbyterian Church. All the supplies were taken to the Destiny Family Center in Stuart's Draft, and will be hauled to Kentucky Thursday morning, 8/4. Nice job loving your neighbor today, everyone!

Area Churches

Serve School Families


On July 31, 2022, Hermitage members co-labored alongside members from other Waynesboro-area Presbyterian churches to serve  nearly 400 hot dog meals to students and families at the Waynesboro Public Schools' Back-to-School Bash. What a great opportunity to show the community that we care! Thanks to the businesses that contributed food items to the event. Watch for more opportunities to serve alongside these other committed congregations.

The 2019 Annual Church Picnic provided wonderful food and fellowship Sunday evening 8/11/2019 at the Glover Picnic Area.  We resumed the picnic in 2021 but were having so much fun, we forgot about pictures!
