Carmel was happy to host the stated meeting of the Presbytery of Philadelphia on November 14. A Mission Fair featured Presbytery mission causes. Guest preacher for worship was Rev. Dr. Victor Aloyo, Jr., President of Columbia Theological Seminary. Executive Presbyter Rev. Ruth Santana-Grace was celebrated on her 10th Anniversary with the Presbytery and elected to an additional 5-year term.  A festive dinner and program in Ruth’s honor followed the meeting. Thanks to the Carmel members who helped with arrangements.
