DELAWARE TWP. – As they do each summer, the congregations of a half-dozen area Presbyterian churches gathered on Sunday for a combined outdoor service, followed by a picnic.

This time, the location was Dilts Farm Park on Buchanan Road here. It was a traditional service, with singing, Bible reading, prayer and Communion.

The pastors each delivered part of the sermon, on the theme “Living in Harmony with One Another, Is it Really Possible?” The congregations and clergy of Kirkpatrick (Ringoes), Mount Airy, Lambertville, Stockton, Grace (Pennington) and Titusville Presbyterian churches took part.

The recently formed hand bell choir, the Ringers of Kirkpatrick, played a role. In recognition of the July 4 holiday, they performed “America the Beautiful.”

Most people sat on folding chairs inside the park pavilion, but the overflow crowd meant some were outside in the shade of nearby big tree.
