     What a wonderful visit this morning at The Baptist Church in the Great Valley from the Baptist History Preservation Society! (https://www.baptisthistorypreservation.info/).
   
                                                                                                                                                               

    A group of fifty or sixty men from Baptist churches across the country are on a week long bus tour visiting historic churches of Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. They visited our historic cemetery and had a service in our meeting house led by Rev. Jeff Faggart of Rockwell, NC, who also organizes these tours every year in different parts of the country.      

    Part of their effort is to compile and sing the original hymns as published in their beautiful hymnal. It was a joy to hear their voices raise the roof of our meetinghouse, an echo of our Welsh roots.    

Rev. Faggart read from the teachings of our third pastor, Rev. David Jones, and it was a joy to hear those 18th century words in a modern context. 
 

     Godspeed you to your homes and families. Come see us again!

(In the photo, Rev. John Loring hosted the service, Rev. Jeff Faggart spoke and our Dr. Tom Winters accompanied the singing on the organ).
