About Our Church

No matter who you are, you are welcome here!

If you are looking for a church to call home, we are glad that you are here! 

All of us at Unionville Presbyterian Church share a common belief in the good news of Jesus Christ and we welcome all God’s people in worship.

Our services are informal, and warm, and filled with sacred and secular music that is always inspirational and uplifting.

Welcome to Unionville Presbyterian Church!

We believe God intends our worshipping community to be grounded in God’s love, centered on Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit in order to be a blessing to our world and to one another. We are affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) denomination. PC(USA) is distinctly a confessional and a connectional church, distinguished by the representation of elders—laymen and laywomen—in its government.

We come together each week on Sunday mornings to meet with the one True and Living God through music, prayer, giving, and fellowship. At UPC, we want to assist each other in deepening our understanding of God, be known in authentic relationships, and to make Jesus known to those around us.

Reverend Annalie Korengel

Pastor and Head of Staff

Annalie is a “cradle Presbyterian” and has been the pastor at UPC since September, 2012.  She holds master’s degrees in Divinity, Social Work, Business Administration, and Human Resources, and was awarded the 2019 Outstanding Citizen of the Year for the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce. 

She lives in West Chester, in a Victorian house built in 1900, with her husband, Gary Lorgus, and three wonderful children: Jamie, Riley, and Kayte. 

In her free time, Annalie enjoys reading, riding horses, and playing with her three very cute Bichon-Poodles, Molly, Pippin, and Puckett, who add excitement and joy (and a little bit of chaos!) to their home.

Bill Johnson

Director of Music Ministry

Bill has served as the Director of Music at UPC since January, 2010. In addition to being involved in church music for over 50 years, he also brings considerable experience in secular music. He holds a B. S. and a M. M. in Music Education, from West Chester University, and has taught vocal and general music, for the Octorara Area School District, for 40 years.

Bill has always lived in the Kennett Square area, where he was born, baptized, and raised Presbyterian. He lives with his wife Mary Lou, another native of Kennett Square, who has also served as a church musician for over 50 years.

When not directing the Chancel Choir or Handbell Choir at UPC, Bill can be found composing music, or playing a variety of brass and percussion instruments in the 2uesday Nite Band; or babysitting with Mary Lou, their 10 grandchildren.

Music at Unionville Presbyterian Church

“The singing of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs is a vital and ancient form of prayer. Singing engages the whole person and helps to unite the body of Christ in common worship.” presbyterianmission.org

At Unionville Presbyterian Church, we believe in demonstrating our faith through song and we are fortunate to have someone as talented as Bill Johnson leading our congregation with uplifting and inspirational music.

A sampling of our music can be viewed in this video.

Why I Love Unionville Presbyterian Church

“I have been a member of Unionville Presbyterian Church since 1997. I love my church family; everyone is so kind and friendly. Aside from listening to the weekly service (either in person or live streamed), some other ways we praise God are Bible Study’s, choir, supporting several local nonprofits, the Baking Team and much more! We have a special, fun Birthday song to sing if it’s your birthday and usually our passing of the peace needs to be wrapped up once the choir director starts playing music.”
