Our congregation has a long and storied history.  We were founded in 1726, by the Reverend William Tennent.  Tennent was a graduate of the University of Edinburgh, class of 1695. He set sail for the new world and landed in Philadelphia on September 6th, 1718. In 1726 he moved to Bucks County and preached first at Bensalem, near the mouth of the Neshaminy Creek.  He then made his way up the creek, to the area near the "forks", where there was enough Scotch-Irish Presbyterians to organize a congregation.  The following year, 1727, a meetinghouse was begun on the grounds of the present cemetery.  All that remains of that original sanctuary is its datestone, now embedded in the cemetery's south wall near the current chapel.

William Tennent founded the "Log College" not long after, which closed after his death in May of 1746. Later that year the College of New Jersey  (later named "Princeton University") opened, enthusiastically supported by Tennent's former Log College students. Four were on its charter board of trustees, as were two of Tennent's sons, William Jr. and Gilbert.

AMERICAN RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE

Please join our lifesaving mission and schedule an appointment today!

Monday, January 10, 2022 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Coordinator Name: Don Millin

You can sign up online at www.redcrossblood.org Blood supplies are low and the need is great. Presently, significant precautions are being taken to ensure the safety of each donor and Red Cross volunteer involved in the donation process. They are staggering appointments to keep contact to a minimum, doing temperature checks before donors step inside, practicing social distancing, and sanitizing everything constantly. The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime. Please consider a donation and sign up today to save a life!


GIFT CARD INITIATIVE

CODE BLUE IS COMING DECEMBER 1!!!

We are once again welcoming Code Blue into our auditorium for the month of December. When the weather is 26 0 and fully staffed (14 people), CSSH, The Coalition to Support and Shelter the Homeless opens the shelter for the night. This year all guests and volunteers will be masked. We are still practicing frequent handwashing and sanitization of the facility as well as social distancing. While we won’t have partitions erected, we will be keeping our guest 6 feet apart through the layout of the mattresses. All food service will be contactless. Since we could be open from December 1- December 30, a total of 30 nights, we need volunteers to help at the shelter. This year, like last year, we are making it easy. There will be one in-person training session on: Sunday November 14 from 1 -3 pm at Our lady of Guadalupe, 5914 Cold Spring Creamery Road, Doylestown.
