Upcoming Events

Swarthmore Presbyterian Church is a busy place! Whether it’s providing opportunities for fun and fellowship, or caring for our local community, there is always something going on. Take a look at some of our upcoming events and see where you would like to join us.

 Alternative Christmas Shop

Shopping Lists are NOW available!
Sunday, December 10 and 17, 3:00 pm

A beloved holiday tradition in its 12th year, Alternative Christmas Shop offers Advent shoppers a different way to give and a teaching moment for children. Fellowship Hall will be festive with balloons, music and holiday cookies, as shoppers browse 23 charities and decide on gifts in honor of family, friends, teachers, and others. Shoppers will find charities from local to international and a range of prices, from $5 to $50. Kids will find a couple of $1 gifts to buy without depleting their piggy banks while learning that giving is the true message of Christmas.

Alternative Christmas Shop shopping lists are available throughout the church and online.

 Special Delivery Christmas Carols

Sunday, December 10, 3:00 pm
On the second Sunday of Advent, we will once again gather for Special Delivery Christmas Carols, where singers of all ages bring a little Christmas cheer to SPCers who can’t readily get to church. Carolers are asked to gather in Fellowship Hall at 3:00 pm, where song sheets will be handed out, directions will be given to our visitees homes, and carpools will be sorted out. Afterwards, all will meet back at SPC for a light snacks and to share stories from their visits. To join the troupe, please contact Meghan Meloy Ness.

MLK Day of Service

Monday, January 15, 2018
Every MLK day, members of SPC spend the day in service to others. In recent years, our members have traveled to one of our mission partner locations and assisted with a large project for which many hands are needed, such painting murals, outdoor cleanup, and general organizing of their space. It’s different every year, so please keep your eye out for whatever worthwhile opportunity is available this year.

Annual Meeting & Potluck

Sunday, January 28, 11:15 am
All church members are invited to our annual meeting. Following the meeting, please join us for a Potluck Lunch in Fellowship Hall at 12:00 pm. As usual, we ask the congregation for food contributions.

Souper Bowl of Caring

Sunday, February 4, 2018
The Hunger Group invites all of us to help fight hunger in Delaware County. On Souper (Super) Bowl Sunday, volunteers will be standing by the doors after each worship service with soup pots to collect donations.
