“It is more blessed to GIVE than to receive.”
In this time of uncertainty and anxiety, a natural impulse is to turn inward, to protect ourselves, and to hoard our gifts. However, our faith calls us to reach out in love to others both in good times and in bad times. Right now, we can’t physically reach out beyond our front doors, but we can reach out in other ways. We can pray for the sick, for a quick end to the pandemic, and for guidance and strength for everyone, including our leaders and ourselves. We can contact those who are alone and lonely. We may be able to share our money. While many among us are facing financial hardships, not all of us are. If you are able to donate funds during this difficult time, I encourage you to continue your financial support of our church. Even though for now we are not meeting together on Sunday mornings, Penn Wynne Presbyterian Church still needs to pay its employees, to maintain its property, and to pay its bills.
On Tuesday, August 4, the church sustained significant damage from Tropical Storm Isaias. The damages are still being calculated, but are anticipated to far exceed the limits of our insurance policy. Donations to our Flood Recovery Fund will be used to clean the mess and repair the damages.

Help Feed The Hungry

Broad Street Ministry believes, “There is always a seat at our table; there is enough for everyone.” It is providing meals to the homeless in Center City while practicing social distancing.
Philabundance collects food and gives it to 90,000 people every week. In addition to its regular food distributions, during the pandemic it is distributing emergency boxes of food to neighbors in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Its goal is to “to drive hunger from our communities today and end hunger for good.”
In Philadelphia, the homeless are suffering as many services for them have had to close or severely curtail the help they can offer during the pandemic. But hunger does not happen only to the homeless in the city. Many of our neighbors in comfortable homes are unemployed and struggling to feed their families. They will go to bed hungry tonight and they will wake up hungry tomorrow. Parents are skipping meals in order to feed their children. Please join us in supporting Broad Street Ministry and the Philabundance, two organizations that feed the hungry.
We are called to love our neighbors, and that means feeding them when they are hungry.
Financial offerings made to our Feeding the Hungry fund will be split evenly between these two organizations. We are also collecting canned proteins to go directly to neighborhood food banks in need. Please contact Heather Cronan at firstname.lastname@example.org for details on no-contact canned good donations. Please prayerfully consider what you can contribute to feed our hungry neighbors.
