Fundraiser a Huge Success

A wonderful time was had by all as nearly full house enjoyed a night of song and inspiration all to benefit the “Abigail’s Angels” cause to fight childhood blindness brought on by the congenital eye disorder RDH12 which 9 year old Abigail Kinney of Starkdale church has.  

The evening began with an inspiring prayer by Abigail followed by a soaring rendition of the timeless classic hymn “Amazing Grace” by 14 year old Chloe Lash.  Then the Starkdale Youth Worship Team sang a bluegrass medley consisting of the songs “I Saw The Light, Will The Circle Be Unbroken and I’ll Fly Away”.  There was a drawing for CD’s and an Abigail’s Angels T-shirt. Then Mary Lou Jones from Froggy FM introduced three time Dove award winning artist Ginny Owens who sang and played beautiful songs of inspiration and praise on the piano accompanied by Kyle Buchanan on acoustic guitar. Ginny shared stories about her life in dealing with having gone blind at age three and how the Lord gave her grace and strength to live a full life even though she has been visually impaired nearly her entire life.

Welcome to Starkdale Presbyterian Church

The Sanctuary of Starkdale ChurchThe Starkdale Presbyterian Church of Steubenville is a worshipping community committed to bringing glory to God. We seek to proclaim the truth of God's love as revealed in the person of Jesus Christ in all that we do. We invite you to take a few minutes to explore what God is doing in and through this congregation by exploring this website.

We value being educated and inspired towards God and Christian service. Everything we do strives to affirm this educational direction: pastoral leadership, elder and deacon selection, church school, music, youth programs, mission outreach, small groups, church services and social service.

We exist to spread a passion for the knowledge of God in all people's hearts, minds, and bodies, so that their joy may complete for the glory of God. We desire to be an innovative preaching and teaching congregation of the truth of God's Word and supremacy. He provides for us spirituality, emotionally and physically. We worship God with our minds, love Him with our hearts and serve Him with our bodies glorifying Him immensely.

We provide opportunities to build a love relationship with Jesus Christ and each other both individually and corporately. With Jesus as the core of our lives, we focus on care, compassion and restoration.

Finally, with emphasis on the Presbyterian heritage of Christian education and guidance of the Holy Spirit, we cultivate a deeper commitment to Jesus Christ and His great commission by building and savoring a stronger Christian presence in our families, our church, our community and in our world. Here we delight in joy and find rest for all souls to magnify His glory.
