Our Pastor


It is our joy and pleasure to welcome you to the Garst Mill Orthodox Presbyterian Church website. If you would like more information please call the church at 540-774-8281 or send an email to Pastor James Clark at (GarstMillPres@gmail.com). Better yet, we would encourage you to visit us on the Lord’s Day, so we can worship our God together!

We are confident that you will find here at Garst Mill Presbyterian a warm and joyous body of believers. There is an enthusiasm for our Savior, happiness in being able to serve Him together, and an unmistakable love for one another in Christ Jesus. A group of Christians like these provoked one person in the early years of the Christian church to observe that “Christians do love one another before they are acquainted—if they but know that they are Christians.”

Another characteristic which is soon obvious is that our church takes the things of God seriously. We are a people who not only say that God is important, but seek to behave so as to reflect that importance. Our worship is simple and conducted with solemnity; it is also joyful. We are aware that we are meeting with God Himself, and we come confident of His blessings because of our Savior Jesus Christ.

The Bible, God’s Word, is greatly loved by us. We do not worship the book, but we look to what God has revealed so that we will know God, know how to worship Him, know how He has given salvation, and know how to serve Him. We invite you to come and study the Bible with us!
