Passing the Peace

Call to Worship

Give the king your justice, O God,

that he may rule your people righteously

and the poor with justice.

In his time will righteousness flourish;

there shall be abundance of peace till the moon shall be no more. He shall rule from sea to sea,

and from the river to the ends of the earth.

Come, let us worship God.

January Benevolence – Mission to Chinese Seamen

“The ocean depths raise their voice, O LORD; they raise their voice and roar. The LORD rules supreme in heaven, greater than the roar of the ocean, more powerful than the waves of the sea.” (Psalm 93:3-4)

The Mission to Chinese Seamen reaches out to seafarers from many nations right here at the port of Philadelphia. Merchant Seamen typically spend ten months or more each year on board ship and only two months in their home country with family and friends.  The life of a seafarer is often lonely, monotonous and many times dangerous.  Seamen are truly a forgotten people group because they are an international population constantly on the move.

Save the Date

The annual church meeting and pot luck is scheduled for February 12.  More information to follow.
