At Wissahickon, we continue to seek the Lord by preaching the Word every Sunday. Reverend Crawford Clark guides our ministry in this time of flux and change. Over the last year, we have lost several of our stalwart members and are seeking a new vision for our ministry. In association with an Administrative Commission, we went through a process of self evaluation and discernment that culminated in a vote to proceed with a plan to seek financial and mission partnerships with outside entities to optimize the use of our building and to create a revenue stream that will enable us to continue. Our building needs significant investment and upgrading of infrastructure.
On the plus side, our neighborhood continues to thrive and recent investment in new apartments indicates a thriving community surrounds us. We have been in discussions with potential partners to create a co-working space, a wedding reception venue and a pre school. We installed a new roof last Spring and await the next phase of our mission.
