What's Going On

Update on the Van Pelt Accessibility Project

The Lift Procurement process continues with the goal of having all information needed to make a decision regarding the lift soon. Our group has encountered many frustrations with the process, including quagmires in licensing, requesting proposals, mapping ADA standards, and assessing for quality in potential manufactures, but our quest is nearing an end. All of the proposals have been received and we will be meeting shortly to discuss and compare them to choose the right way forward.
Should you have questions or would like to make a financial gift towards the accessibility needs of the Church, please feel free to call Norman Fouhy (Business Administrator, pronouns he/him) or Nic Tenaglia (Building Superintendent, pronouns they/them) at (215) 563-3980.

Our Minister

In the Spring of 2016, we called Rev. Abbey Tennis to our congregation.

She is passionate about building multigenerational and multicultural ministries that enliven the mind, grow the heart, engage the body, feed the soul, and transform the world.

You can learn more about Rev. Abbey Tennis on her personal website here.



Worship with Us!

November 24. The End of the World as We Know It (Rev. Abbey Tennis)
In the 1970s, we taught children that cleaning up litter would save the world. In the 1980s, it was recycling. Today's children are learning that climate disaster is immanent unless our entire society undergoes dramatic transformation. How can our faith renew our hope, sustain our activism, and prepare us for what is to come as our world transforms, for better or worse?

December 1. Mystery or Miracle? (Crystal Mann)
This month’s theme, mystery, is full of enigmas for people of faith, people of science, and those that are a little of both. You will be given the facts, but you still have do decide.
