Replanting a 120 Year Old Urban Church

When we moved back into Philly two years ago one of our burdens was to see churches planted in different neighborhoods. Six months ago a church in my old neighborhood in North Philly reached out for help. The church has been in existence for 120 years. The neighborhood had changed and the church had shrunk with only a few faithful families left trying to hold it together. My brother John became interim pastor and recommended a replant. The church recently voted to dissolve, come under Grace Church – University City and replant. On November 20 Grace Church – Feltonville plans to open. The churches are only about 20 minutes apart but in different worlds. This is way bigger than us and our resources. We need the prayers of God's people and in His time we will be looking for a church planter to move into the city to lead this church plant.
