Giving Update Sep 15 ⋅ by Bill Langford

The Tenth Session recently approved a revised policy on giving, and Tenth is currently rolling out a new membership database and donations processing software called TouchPoint.  Using TouchPoint for online giving greatly increases the efficiency of donation processing and year-end statements. Donors who, in the past, signed up for recurring online giving will need to re-register in TouchPoint.  TouchPoint enables members to choose from a list of Session-approved funds to indicate how their giving will be used to support the ministry of Tenth. Givers may notice that the online giving no longer provides a memo line. This is by design as processing a designation that is written on a memo line can sometimes be difficult and […]

Tenth College Fellowship during COVID-19 Sep 1 ⋅ by Jared Cochrum

Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. Psalm 90:1-2 As we are rapidly approaching the beginning of the semester, Tenth College Fellowship (TCF) is preparing for an unusual semester, but one that we believe will still offer many opportunities for students to connect with one another, grow in their faith, and grow in their witness […]

Letter from Federal Detention Aug 25 ⋅ by Enrique Leal

Dear Brother, I hope this letter finds you well. It’s been awhile since we’ve been able to get together for a bible study, but I kept you in my thoughts and prayers. I truly hope that you have been able to stay healthy during this time! Things in here have been exceedingly boring. For our safety, they keep us locked up in our cells 22.5 hours out of the day. Unfortunately, that means we haven’t been allowed to meet for […]

Software to Serve Jul 28 ⋅ by Bill Langford

Although the sanctuary has been quiet, the administrative staff at Tenth has been working hard to implement new software systems that will help us stay better connected as a congregation and achieve greater efficiencies in our administrative processes. Most members are familiar with the Church Life App, also known as Access Tenth, which provides a church directory and is used to process giving. Access Tenth lacks many capabilities we need to stay connected, provide pastoral care, and efficiently process donations. […]

The New Vulnerable May 19 ⋅ by Enrique Leal and Gavin Lymberopoulos

For decades, the Lord has steadily introduced Tenth members to vulnerable people in Philadelphia. As we are all now aware, to use a word like vulnerable is now a massive understatement. Before the COVID-19 crisis, Tenth’s immigrants and homeless neighbors lacked basic resources. As we are now more than 75 days into the lockdown, any margin these neighbors built into their life has dissolved and the relationships developed through the efforts of Tenth’s Mercy Commission and other charities are essential. […]

Everyone Needs Mercy Apr 28 ⋅ by Laura Layer and Phil Scribano

Jesus  says that the greatest commandment is this: “Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, soul, and mind.” And the second greatest commandment is like it: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Our Lord tells the parable of the Good Samaritan in response to the following question: “So, Jesus, who is my neighbor anyway?” In the parable a man is injured by robbers and is left by the side of the road. Two people of high distinction in […]

Changing Apr 17 ⋅ by Gavin Lymberopoulos

We as a church have placed our hope in the “Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.” Nevertheless, because of the truly unprecedented nature of this moment, each week the pastors and ministry leaders  have spent time changing. Changing plans. Changing expectations. Changing our strategy. What has not changed is our belief that all of us need to meet with God by the Holy Spirit through word and prayer. So, slowly, week by […]

Passion & Resurrection Apr 10 ⋅ by Colin Howland

The immeasurable significance of Holy Week is perhaps best attested by the amount of space given to recording its events in the gospels. From the total of 89 chapters in the four gospel accounts, 29 chapters are devoted to describing what Jesus said and did from Palm Sunday to Easter. Not only this, but each gospel is composed so the reader can clearly understand that there is an inexorable movement in Jesus’ life towards the cross and the empty tomb. […]

Easter Development Apr 9 ⋅ by Travers Oliver

In a previous Tenth Press article, we spoke about the work the Lord is doing through our Global Partners and the two relief projects we’re supporting for our 2020 Easter Sacrificial Offering (ESO). If you haven’t had a chance to read it, you can find it here. In that article we distinguished between relief work and development work. Relief work provides an immediate solution to a pressing need, whereas development work is oriented around a long-term solution, looking to provide […]
