A Special Invitation: “Remembering and Celebrating the Methacton Oak”.
A special event is planned to commemorate the Methacton Oak on Sunday, November 5, 2017 . This beautiful tree graced it’s surroundings for nearly 400 years until its recent collapse, a quiet witness to our shared history, from Native Americans hunting the animals that fed on it’s acorns, to the signing of William Penn’s charter and countless other events as our community evolved. We invite our community to join us for “Remembering and Celebrating the Methacton Oak”. The schedule of activities will include:
9:30 AM Worship in the historic Methacton Mennonite Meetinghouse. Bring your hats to hang on the original hat rack.
11:00 Sharing and Storytelling: Bring your stories of the Oak
12:00 Soup and dessert served
1:00 – 3:00 PM Cemetery tours with re-enactments; Family activity stations
All are invited to bring a picture of the Oak for a collage to grace the church hall.

CONNECTING PEOPLE TO JESUS
Methacton Mennonite Church, the little white church on Mill Road, Worcester Township, opens its heart and its doors to everyone. Methacton strives to build in our community a Christian congregation for worship, to live the Christian life and in all ways nurture the Kingdom of God. We believe worship includes an opportunity to honor and thank God, to privately confess and be forgiven our mistakes, to find meaning and direction for life, and to be a part of a group of people with similar joys, struggles, and needs.
Join us for worship. Take part in our fellowship. Share in our search for genuine spirituality. Help discern what it means to live out our faithful response to God’s call.
We believe that God works through people and calls each of us to make a difference in the world by the way we live. We share joys and sorrows, hopes and hurts, aspirations and disappointments with one another in the context of a caring community. We welcome you to join with us in the pilgrimage of faith.
Jesus has risen! The kingdom that he proclaimed continues to emerge! We’ve got work to do!
