DELAWARE TWP. -- A group of Presbyterian churches in Hunterdon and Mercer counties held a combined outdoor service, followed by a picnic, on Sunday, July 1 at the Holcombe-Jimison Farmstead Museum, on Route 29 just north of Lambertville.

Taking part were the congregations of Grace (Pennington), Kirkpatrick (Ringoes), Lambertville, Larison's Corner, Mount Airy, Stockton and Titusville churches. The gathering included many of the elements of a traditional Presbyterian service, including songs, scripture, prayers and Holy Communion.

Instead of a formal sermon, representatives of the congregations reported on how their churches worked to help their communities. The combined bells choirs from Kirkpatrick and Lambertville performed several songs.

After the service and luncheon, participants could tour the museum, which includes a number of buildings displaying artifacts of Hunterdon's past. The emphasis is on the county’s agricultural heritage.
