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:
51 W. Central Ave
Delaware, OH 43015
or even better, stop by our worship service and make your offering in person!

Special Needs Giving
Occasionally, opportunities arise for our body to give to individual causes that will help our community, missions abroad, and many other causes.
This morning as we continue through our discussion of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, we are going to hear to some verses that may get some us in areas where we feel sensitive. They might remind us of harsh things we've heard in church in the past, or times when God has not been presented as loving. But the fact that other people have used these texts poorly is not a reason for us to ignore them. This is our sacred text, and we are not afraid of what's in here. When the Bible gets difficult, it is tempting to pull out all the reasons that it might not speak to our culture. For example, the Bible doesn’t account for the range of gender roles, sexual identity and expression that we now understand exists in the world. Our topics for this morning—adultery, marriage, divorce and making promises—were different in the ancient world. And this is important for us to realize, especially because it can keep us from using the Bible against other people.
