    I would like to have the application for the 2015 hunger in your community grant. This would be for the Mustard Seed Ministries’
    Bradford Food Pantry.

    Thank you,

    My wife spent her high school years in Weston, NY and attended a Presbyterian Church located there. We believe the pastor was a Paul Pierson or Pearson during the mid 1960’s. After he left Weston he moved down to the Hudson Valley. My wife’s parents stayed in contact with them for a while.

    Both of my in-laws are now deceased. My wife has a desire to be in contact with the Pierson (Pearson) family. I imagine these people would be well into their 80’s.

    Might you be able to advise us if the people we are trying to contact are still alive and if so how/where we might locate them?

    Thank you so much.

    I went to the last meeting and noted that Church growth/shrinkage wasn’t discussed. I would like to see this as a topic in the next meeting coming up. I know that our Church, Moreland Presbyterian needs ideas on how to add younger members to our aging congregation. I also noted the Presbytery membership was declining using per capita data so I think this is a topic of general interest.
