Presbyterian Men


The Northeastern Presbyterian Men continue to be an effective Christian voice in our church’s efforts to minister to both the congregation and the community. The men’s group supports projects and programs within our church, such as the Northeastern Higher Education Scholarship Program, the Sunday Church School, the Food Pantry, and the Wylie Whisonant Friends of Music Society.

Men at Northeastern and from other churches and the community come together for devotion and breakfast and discuss issues of concern to men. Occasionally women and youth are invited, depending on the issues, and what audiences we are trying to reach. These events are generally held on Saturdays in the months of March and June.


Meetings are held on the third Saturday of each month (except in July and August) at 9:00 a.m.



 Men's Day

We plan and provide leadership in an annual Men’s Day/Father’s Day worship service., which is held on the third Sunday in June. Each year a male chorus is formed and rehearses at least four times in order to support the service with music. Occasionally the men are asked to come forward and rededicate themselves to serve Christ’s church.


We actively participate in the Mid-Atlantic Synod Men’s Conference, which is held annually at Massanetta Springs Conference Center in Virginia. Men from other Presbyteries in our synod gather for three days for worship, spiritual development and fellowship. 

 The word IXUS (pronounced”ick-thus) means “fish” in Greek. But the Greek letters also spell out a secret message Jesus Christ of God, Son and Savior! The I IXUS symbol has long been used by PRESBYTERIAN MEN and was added to the circle at the time of the 1983 reunion to signify our unity in the new Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) and our unity with Christians worldwide.

– Joshua 24:15

Presbyterian Women


Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves
  • to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study,
  • to support the mission of the church worldwide,
  • to work for justice and peace,
  • and to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.
