Volunteers needed on Saturday, March 5, to serve breakfast and distribute clothing and toiletries for up to 80 needy guests on the first Saturday of each month. This shelter ministry at Old First UCC in Philadelphia supports hunger relief efforts by providing a place for guests to enjoy a hot breakfast and fellowship.  Guests are also offered the opportunity to select clothing, snacks and toiletries from the clothing cupboard each Saturday.
To join the group  (volunteers must be 14 yrs or older.), add your name to the sign-up sheet located on the bulletin board across from the church office.   Meet at Grace and leave by 7:45 am to return by noon.  For more information, please call the church office at 215-887-6117. 

Listening Groups
Our listening groups begin on Sunday February 29.  If you haven’t already signed up at church, you can sign up online here. Remember, this is your opportunity to learn about the survey results, and find out about our community. Even more importantly, these groups will allow you to both listen and be heard as we seek God’s direction for our church for the next 5 years or more, and develop a strategic plan. We're listening, and we want to hear from you! So please sign up for one of the available time slots.

Financial Report
The January 2016 Financial Report is now available.

Adult Education
Come join us in Adult Ed as we’re introduced to yet another profound Christian speaker for our Late-Modern era. This Sunday we’ll be listening and discussing to Tim Keller’s talk on Identity. Tim Keller is the author of “Reason For God,” and is described by many as the C.S. Lewis of our day. The video will begin @ 930 in the Palmer Room.
