Visiting Davisville Church With a TFC Chapel

Southampton, PA – Sunday, May 26

I love enjoying my morning coffee as the scenery changes before my eyes.

 

 

DSC_8878

Many flags reminded us that it was Memorial Day weekend as we traveled toward Philadelphia.

The chapel just after we got it set up in the church parking lot.

Some of the church members were already busy preparing lunch.

This is where Tish and Howard Jones have attended church for many years.

 

 

DSC_8897

Howard was a TFC chaplain from the mid ’80s to mid ’90s and then TFC’s President for a few years. He is now President Emeritus and a volunteer chaplain in Elkton, Maryland.

Some of the cooks came to see the chapel during a break before church started. It was fun listening to Howard tell about some of his experiences on a chapel.

The worship team.

A Bible verse that the congregation repeated.

 

 

DSC_8919

I love this song.

Pastor Tim Wilson challenged us to move out of our comfort zone this summer and reach out to those around us.

Why?

We are Christ’s ambassadors.

God reconciled us so we can be part of reconciling others.

Jesus didn’t just give the truth. He is the Truth.

God loves setting people free.

God loves restoring people

Jesus’ mission statement: Seek and save the lost.

Jesus’ first words to his disciples: I will MAKE you fishers of men.

Jesus’ last words to his disciples: Go and MAKE disciples.

 

 

DSC_8927

Following the worship service, those who wished to stay enjoyed lunch on the church lawn.

It looks sunny and warm, but it was breezy and cool. Had it been warmer, the worship service would have been held outside as well.

 

 

DSC_8929

We were pleasantly surprised to discover that Eleanor and Aaron Fox attend this church. I think we knew that years ago, but had forgotten. Aaron served as a chaplain and built two chapels in the early ’90s.

 

 

DSC_8940

We enjoyed a busy early afternoon, telling people about the chapel, and  listening to more of Howard’s stories before heading west on the Pennsylvania turnpike.

 

 

DSC_8943

We got off at the Morgantown (PA) exit to meet Titus Beam – a TFC friend for many years – who had called a few days earlier to say that he had a donation of about fifty Winross model trucks for the Truck Rally Winross and Model Truck Auction on June 22.

 

 

DSC_8944

He doesn’t live far from this exit, so we made plans to make this connection near Morgantown.

 

 

DSC_8949

This was not quite the end to our day…

~~~

…but you will have to come back tomorrow night to see whose birthday we celebrated after the chapel was put in its parking space at the office.

We had only fifteen minutes to freshen up and get to her daughter’s house for the surprise.

Chuck E. Cheese’s

With Jana, Ian, Jared, and Jesse

Saturday, May 25

 

 

DSC_8831

This trip to Chuck E. Cheese’s was to celebrate Jared’s birthday a few days earlier.

 

 

DSC_8800

The boys enjoy having their siblings along.

I asked Jana if she prefered to go or stay home alone, as she was in charge of babysitting the boys while their parents were at a wedding.

The boys like to invite their cousin Gloria, but she, her mom, and sisters were at Chincoteague.

 

 

DSC_8801

Jana thought it would be fun, because it has been a long time since she was here.

 

 

DSC_8802

Racing is always a popular game for the boys.

 

 

DSC_8811

 

 

DSC_8806

Jesse was pleased to win a long strip of tickets.

We had a great morning.
