Bryn Athyn Church would love to have you join us at any of our holiday services. Please see the Calendar for service times and locations, as services are often held during each of our regular worship service venues and time-slots.
Thanksgiving Family Services - services are on Thanksgiving Day at the Asplundh Field House. The congregation is invited to bring an offering of fruit as a token of thanks. During the service congregants are invited to bring the fruit forward as an offering.
