Joyce Shin Called by
Swarthmore Presbyterian

On Sunday, September 27, the congregation of Swarthmore Presbyterian Church in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, voted to call Joyce Shin to serve as their Pastor and Head of Staff.
       Joyce’s last day with us will be Sunday, October 11. That morning she will preach at all three services of worship. Then at 12:15 p.m. we will hold a congregational meeting to dissolve our pastoral relationship with her. Afterwards please join us for a reception in Joyce’s honor, as we celebrate this exciting new opportunity and call for Joyce; thank her, Michael, and Sophia for their ministry among us; and wish them Godspeed!
       You can read Joyce’s letter about the Swarthmore Presbyterian call here.

Installation of the Pipe Organ Is Underway!

Organ Console for Fourth Presbyterian Church At Quimby Pipe Organs, the almost-complete console of our new pipe organ
As you can see from the photos on Facebook, the installation of our rebuilt pipe organ has begun! The work—which includes installing nearly 8,000 pipes—is anticipated to take several months, and we look forward to celebrating the completed instrument this Advent. In the meantime, be sure to watch for regular photo updates!
