While at a summer barbeque a number of years ago, I was invited to visit Darnestown Presbyterian Church (DPC). The timing was perfect. Although, I have lived within a few miles of DPC for over 20 years and thought the church was beautiful, I was also at a cross roads with the church I had been attending. From the moment I walked in the door, I felt at home. The congregation was extremely friendly, Pastor McNeilly and Associate Pastor Lara welcomed me with open arms and a homemade loaf of bread. Fortunately, that was just the start of my journey at DPC and an expanded relationship with God. After attending and joining DPC for a couple of years, my personal relationship with God took a central part of my life. Soon after, I felt called to serve the congregation in a greater capacity. Joining the Board of Deacons led to participating in the Nominating Committee and to the Bell Choir; all activities that I would have never considered before. I had always considered myself a Christian, but DPC and the congregation has opened the door of opportunity to let God into my life like never before enabling to live a much more purposeful and rewarding life. I am very fortunate and much of it is due to the congregation of Darnestown Presbyterian Church.
