Once among the largest churches in the Pittsburgh Presbytery, Dormont currently had a little more than 100 parishioners and has now become an official Partner Congregation with Wallace Memorial Presbyterian, Green Tree. Dormont will blend its fellowship, education and mission with Wallace which was founded in 1930.

The two congregations will vote early next year whether to merge into one. The Pittsburgh Presbytery would have to approve such a merger.
