French Creek Bible Conference


On April 1, 1960, the French Creek Bible Conference Association held its first annual banquet at the Calvary Reformed Presbyterian Church of Willow Grove. The Rev. John C. Hills, pastor of the OPC of Franklin Square, served as the main speaker. Mr. Thomas Tyson, Westminster Seminary senior, served as song leader. A two dollar dinner was prepared and served by the Ladies' Auxiliary of Phil-mont Christian High School.

The purpose of the gathering was "to commemorate the good times at French Creek and to think of the summer ahead," and all "alumni of the conferences, their families and friends, and Association members are welcome to attend."
