The Power of Through


Rev. Alfred T. Day

A graduate of Houghton College and Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary, he has also studied at Drew University and Temple University. Prior to his present appointment, Rev. Day most recently served historic St. George’s Church, a United Methodist Heritage Landmark in Philadelphia. He has also served as a District Superintendent and is an Asbury Scholar.

Musician

We are pleased to welcome back Dan Stokes as our music leader again this year. Dan accepted the call to serve Trinity United Methodist Church in New Cumberland in 2015. He has lead numerous festivals and workshops for the National Association of Pastoral Musicians, the Fellowship Of United Methodists in Music and Worship Arts, and others. Dan is grateful to Trinity, Hummelstown for early opportunities to play for worship and to Park St. UMC and 4th UCC, a shared ministry, for demonstrating what is means to let the light of Christ shine in the midst of darkness.
