Drexel Hill Church of the Brethren, PA

Drexel Hill Church is celebrating its 3rd year since the replant at the end of May. This past year has brought some challenges and an abundance of joy. Our Connect groups (Bible Study) have expanded to 3 separate groups meeting throughout the week to accommodate schedules and travel. The adult group with special needs is the fastest growing group at the church. Fulfilling their needs to attend service and Bible Study takes the whole congregation, which we whole heartily embrace. On any given Sunday, our worship service ranges from a core group to many visitors. The Children’s Ministry (Sunday school for 1 year old to 6 years old) varies every Sunday. It is a blessing to scramble to accommodate 10 or more Drexel Hill Church Revitalization children when we are expecting 4. The highlight is our first baptism and it was on Easter Sunday! The joyful noise we created that day filled the neighborhood. God is awesome. God is good. To Him all the honor and glory, in Jesus’ name.

Love, Peace and Blessings,  Margie Sebastinani, Church Development Commission
