Details: We have offered occasional silent retreats to which people outside the congregation have been invited. We have offered an ALPHA course with a meal at the church for a couple years. We plan to offer an Alpha Marriage Course this fall, 2012. We opened a disc golf course that was available to the public and was used for several years but recently shut it down due to the effects on our neighbors. We had a mentoring group for a Bridge of Hope family for about 5 years. We produced a monthly TOGETHER magazine that was distributed to every house within a certain radius of the church. We host a cemetery tour each fall and invite the community to hear the history of our cemetery since it is a Worcester Township community cemetery in many ways, going back to the 1700s. This has been very popular with township residents. We have had Sundays focused on East Africa because of one family in our congregation who are from Tanzania. Other East Africans from the Philadelphia area attend these Sundays.
