History of the Church

Homer City Alliance church has a rich history in this community.  The founding members originally met in a one room school house in Waterman, PA.  In the spring of 1942, the people began renting a vacated church building on Juniper street in Homer City.  By February 1945, the church and parsonage were purchased, though, both were in dire need of repair.  1957 was when the remodeling was completed so the church was rededicated for the use and service to the Lord.  March 9, 1967 the church was incorporated and officially named the Christian and Missionary Alliance of Homer City, PA.

Continuing to grow, the church quickly outgrew its current building so in the spring of 1973, the church broke ground for a new building under the supervision of Pastor Ron A. Wallace.  To save on construction costs, the new building was almost completely done by the diligent work of volunteers from the church and community.  By November 1974, the new building was completed and dedicated for service to God.

Homer City Alliance church’s history is filled with many stories of joy and laughter, along with many times of sorrow and tears.  Like so many people’s history, we are not defined by our past, but by our present.  As a church family, we learn from our mistakes and we press forward always leaning into God’s love and grace while also seeking His wisdom and discernment.  We do not strive to be a perfect church or even the best one.  Rather, Homer City Alliance church seeks to be the church God has called us to be for this community.
