Sheakleyville Bicentennial

On a typical Sunday, Sheakleyville Presbyterian Church has about 18-20 in attendance for worship.  But on Sunday, May 20th, 130 worshipers filled the pews, communion was served to 106 people, and about 85 were served a delicious luncheon.   This congregation was founded in 1818 by a group of people who didn’t like the version of the Psalter that was being used.  Six families formed the new congregation which aligned with the Associated Reformed denomination.  Later they became United Presbyterians, and then aligned with PC(USA).  Through many hard times, even a tornado which blew away a portion of the roof, this congregation has worshiped in the same building since 1885.   The church has endured and still remains a small but faithful group, mighty in missions, and strong in love of the community.

LAMBEC Capital Campaign

The Camping Association of the Presbyteries of Northwestern Pennsylvania is conducting a $100,000 capital campaign to restore the water system for Camp Lambec.  The system needs a DEP-approved overhaul, and we are starting those repairs with an approved contractor.  This is an expensive overhaul, but it is necessary to continue the ministry to youth and families.  As such, the Board has authorized a $100K campaign to address this and other items of deferred maintenance.  The Board is committed to the continued operation of Camp Lambec, as we believe firmly that this ministry provides unique and powerful discipleship opportunities for participants.  Individual donations can be made online using this link.   Church contributions can be coordinated through the Shenango Presbytery office.
