Sunday, March 8 - Sunday, April 12
We will be showcasing the artistic talents of members and friends of our congregation in our annual DPC Showcase Art Exhibit in the Celtic Cross Room. This is an opportunity for congregants of all ages to show their creative efforts in painting, sculpture, needlework, woodworking, and other art forms. Be sure to stop by and see the many talents our congregants have!
Anyone is welcome to submit an item for this exhibit. Items should be dropped off at the church office no later than Thursday, March 5, and will need to include a card indicating the artist’s name, media, title and/or brief description of the item, and either a sale price or the phrase “not for sale.” All hanging work should have suitable wire (no “teeth” hangers), and please limit the number of items to a maximum of three per person. Following the art show, your items will be available for pick-up in the choir room the week of April 20.

As part of our Celebrate the Arts Concert Series, Doylestown Presbyterian Church is thrilled to host a special performance by award-winning violinist Tosca Opdam of Amsterdam, who will be accompanied by renowned pianist Ari Livne. Tosca made her orchestral debut at the age of 11 and her recital debut at Carnegie Hall in 2018. She plays a Matteo Gofriller violin from 1700 and won first prize in the prestigious Dutch Oskar Back Violin Competition in 2011. Livne is a skilled solo artist, chamber musician, opera coach, and lecturer who has performed throughout the United States. Free-will offering will be received, reception in the Celtic Cross Room following the performance.
DPC Cares is expanding! The Home Help Corps is being formed as an extension of DPC Cares, working directly with the Deacons. We need YOUR help in providing help to members who are experiencing difficulty with tasks at home, errands, or transportation to appointments – whether because of age or health. Here are some examples of what you may be asked to help with. The volunteer form (link below) will give you a chance to indicate your preferences (and jobs you’d rather NOT do):
PLEASE, CLICK HERE to volunteer! You will be placed on our Sign-up Genius list and contacted according to your work preferences (Don’t like to paint? No problem!)
We hope to build a strong member volunteer base throughout February and begin to offer services to members sometime in March.
THANK YOU for prayerfully considering this way of helping fellow members!

Connecting with your fellow DPC members will be easier than ever, thanks to the Church Life App.
This new kind of membership directory will make contact information about church members and events accessible on your cellphones, tablets and computers.
Church Life is free, safe and secure and features a searchable directory, grouped contact info for your activities and an updated calendar. You will also be able to request notifications and alerts sent directly to your device.
While printed copies of a DPC directory will still be available through the Church Office, the digital version is able to display the most current information.
We are excited to bring this latest technology, which is already in use by DPC staff, to everyone in the congregation.
