Cork Collection

We have an idea for a craft project for both the Summer School program at the Darby Rec Center and the clients at Project Share! We’d like to collect as many bottle corks as we can to be used in the creation of birdhouses. So bring us your corks and we’ll stockpile them until we have enough!


The Darby Rec Center remains closed at this time, although the reopening may occur sooner than originally planned. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.

We hit our goals for neckties – thanks to all who have contributed!



We are covered for our lunch obligations for January. We’ll be looking for assistance again in the moth of March!

Gently Used Coats; new N95 Masks

Our Project Share coordinator, Kim, has let us know that they could make very good use of some gently used winter coats and a supply of good masks. The coats can be for adult men or women, larger sizes are best. We’ll be collecting them at the back of the church. If you can’t drop them by yourself, please contact Cassie (610-608-5440) or Katie (610-642-6670) to arrange for pickup.

SUNDAY JANUARY 30th @ 11:45 AM
Please mark your calendar and plan to join us. This year’s meeting will be held on Zoom in the interest of protecting everyone’s health. We will be voting on new Vestry members and the 2022 budget. Meet with us at:

A Light to enlighten the nations, and the glory of your people Israel
This year we will be celebrating Candlemas along with our friends at the Church of the Good Shepherd, Rosemont at their location at 1116 W Lancaster Ave, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010 on Wednesday, February 2, beginning at 7pm. Please plan to attend and bring along any candles you’d like to have blessed.

While we will not be holding coffee hour during this latest surge of Covid, we will continue to have bags of Apostle’s Cup coffee available for purchase between the 9AM and 10AM services. Bags are $15 each and $4 of every purchase goes directly to the Darby Mission to support their efforts in the community. In addition to purchasing coffee for your own use, you can purchase and designate bags for donation for use at the Darby Mission meals or for Project Share. You can also purchase Apostle’s Cup online directly from the House Cup website.

If you have a contribution for the February newsletter, please submit it to the office no later than Friday, January 28th at noon.

If you would like to help prepare the February newsletter mailing, meet us in the Memorial Room on Tuesday, February 1st at 10:30 AM for folding, stuffing, stamping and laughter.

The time has come to tackle the church kitchen! As we have not used it regularly due to COVID restrictions, things have become a bit disarrayed. Cassie Woestman, Judy Jervis and Katie Gentile will be tackling this project on Saturday, February 5 beginning at 9AM. The goal is to reorganize needed items, dispose of broken/unusable items and label the cabinets. If you would like to help, please mark your calendar for February 5 and plan to join us!
