By order of the Session,
George K. McFarland, Clerk
This is a sobering announcement. Actually I was not accurate with the wording. In order for a minister to leave his congregation, he must receive approval from his presbytery, in this case Philadelphia Presbytery. So, at the last presbytery meeting in March, Phil "tendered the resignation of his pastoral charge to his Presbytery." Presbytery, then, "shall cite the church to appear by its commissioners, to show cause why the Presbytery should or should not accept the resignation." Thus, we are required to have "a meeting of the congregation called and conducted in the same manner as the call of the pastor." What we will be voting on is to communicate to presbytery that we consent to Phil's resignation (not that we want it to happen). Presbytery will then act officially to dissolve the relationship.
Pray for Turkey
To Church Leaders and Christians Worldwide,
From the body of Christ in Turkey, to our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world, grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Greetings from the church in Turkey – from the land of Noah, of Abraham, of Paul, of Ararat and Harran, of Antioch, Ephesus, Galatia, of the Seven Churches of Revelation……… Yet today, the body of Christians in our land is less than 0.1% of the population of 72 million.
We are writing to you on behalf of the leaders of the church in Turkey to ask for your churches. We greatly desire that you would join the small congregations of Turkey along with many churches worldwide to give 2-3 minutes to prayer for Turkey in your churches on Sunday April 18, 2010.
Blessed are the Peacemakers

Delaware County Christian School Concert Choir
On Wednesday, May 26 the trip got underway with the first stop at Garden Spot Retirement Village in New Holland, PA. Prior to the performance, small groups of students visited and sang in rooms of those in nursing care and assisted living who would be unable to attend the concert.
From PA the choir traveled to Maryland and Virginia performing for and worshipping with three Christian schools: Chapelgate Christian Academy (Marriottsville, MD), Trinity Christian School (Fairfax, VA), and Greenbriar Christian School (Chesapeake, VA).
The tour wrapped up at a music festival in Williamburg, VA. where the Choir and Knight Tones presented a variety of musical styles ranging from classical, gospel, and choreographed show stoppers. Both the Concert Choir and Knight Tones earned 1st place at the festival.
