DELAWARE TWP. – As they do each summer, a group of Presbyterian churches in Hunterdon and Mercer counties held a combined outdoor service, followed by a picnic, on Sunday.

This time it was held at Holcombe-Jimison Farmstead Museum, on Route 29 just north of Lambertville in Delaware Township. 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 Communion. Members of the congregations were in charge of various parts of the service, with the Bells of Kirkpatrick bell choir performing a variety of patriotic songs, including tributes to America’s armed forces.

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