Trying to get a hold of Pastor Denny. We will be at camp this weekend & Sarah &I would love to play a song. Not sure if this is the weekend Jason was going to be signing. If it is, we'd love for him to sign to the song: "10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) the Matt Redman version, while we play & sing.
So blessed by Easter Sunday service!!!!

A non-denominational bible believing church, standing on the solid rock of Jesus Christ. From "The Historical Album and Daily Program, Venango County Sesquicentennial - 1805 - 1955" Scrubgrass Presbyterian Church - The Stone Church - is the oldest existing church in Venango County.

It is believed to have been started in the 1790s but the exact date is not available because of a fire which burned all records. It is located about four miles from Emlenton and it is ministered to the religious needs of the settlers for a radius of twenty miles. Daughter churches are located at Rockland, Richland, Nickleville, Emlenton, Clintonville, New Salem and Allegheny. Services were at first conducted in a tent in the grove; by 1803, in a log church; by 1815, in a frame building which was rather modern in that it contained six real glass windows, new pulpit and pews, but no stove at first; and in 1845, the present stone structure was built to accommodate the congregation especially on Communion Sabbaths when the table was used - a custom not seen in the regular Presbyterian Churches. In 1800, the first sermon was preached by the Reverend M. William Morehead in the home of Mrs. Abigail Coulter, located about forty rods from the present building. The first public services were held under a large oak tree, still standing, on the top of the hill near Crawford's Corners, just across the line in Butler County. Twenty young men of the church entered the ministry and seven women served in home and foreign mission fields. On the church property is a Chapel, formerly an academy established in 1875 through the efforts of The Reverend Dr. J. R. Coulter. Here the Vacation Bible School is held. The building is 110 years old (in 1955) and it is the only building in the county used by the same congregation for that length of time. But she still stands - the Old Stone Church as God's sentinel to the members in all denominations. May the good she has done be increased more and more.
