PIN helps Delaware County residents with immediate emergency needs possibly created by job loss, break-up of the family, illness, death, or other unexpected financial emergencies. We do not believe we are solving all of the people's problems by simply handing out food or paying utility bills. We see the immediate emergency need as a symptom and not the problem. Our role is to provide assistance with the immediate need and to take a look at the total needs of the family unit. We work with the family or individual to identify appropriate referrals, using all available community resources.
Giving of our time, talent and treasure is one way to support the church. If you'd like to send a monetary donation, send a check to:

or even better, stop by our worship service and make your offering in person!

So before I read this morning's text, hear again these few verses from the end of chapter 1:
