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:

Occasionally, opportunities arise for our body to give to individual causes that will help our community, missions abroad, and many other causes.
We continue this week with a series on the apostle Paul's letter to the church in the very Roman city of Philippi. We think this church was mostly made of Gentile converts because this letter really doesn't contain any Jewish imagery or Old Testament references. This is a letter of consolation, written to help the church learn how to have joy in all circumstances. Last week we talked about how the healthiest practice of our faith is a practice of interdependence. This week's reading follows along that same theme, encouraging the people of the church church to live in a unity that is based in humility, with Jesus as the perfect demonstration. It contains some really famous verses that have become a significant part of our dogma about the nature of Christ. And while I believe most of the theology that has developed from these verses, I just want to remind you that they weren't originally written as an explanation of dogma.
