The Semi-Annual Meeting was a great success. 

On Sunday, June 9th we had a great lunch of hoagies and other summer foods while we discussed church business and welcomed some new friends! Pictures will follow.  

The Book Group is reading... 

   Headed down the shore this month? Looking for a little escape?
   Why not join the BCGV Book Club as we read The Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler, and discuss it June 30th after church! A light lunch will be served. 
   The New Yorker called this best-selling science fiction novel the most prescient dystopian book for our times. It takes on themes of morality, religion, capitalism, the environment, and many others. 
   Octavia Butler was the first science fiction writer to win the MacArthur “Genius” Award!
   Please join us and invite a friend; all viewpoints are welcome.
   All the best! From Logan and the Book Club

Join us every Wednesday evening, starting on May 29th at 7:00pm for Pastor John's series on 

Twilight Conversations

Inspired by the new season of "The Twilight Zone," Pastor John Loring has designed a series of conversations about some of the most provocative and entertaining episodes from the original series that ran from 1958-1964. We will watch the episodes and then have a chance to talk about our impressions. All generations and the public are invited and encouraged to attend, whether you remember Rod Serling and the original series or not. Come meet us and join in the conversations. The Education Building entrance is around the back. Air conditioned and accessible. Comfy chairs. We are expecting "strangers"!

     What a wonderful visit 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).
