Happy Older Presbyterians (HOP)

One day per month all adult members of the Head of Christiana Presbyterian Church and their friends are invited to travel together to a local point of interest (normally no more than 50 miles from Newark).  Participants carpool to the destination and share lunch together during the day.  A brochure is provided for advanced registration.  Individual costs, e.g., event entry fees, reimbursement of drivers, are kept at a minimum. Recent trips have included:

  • Ladew Topiary Gardens in Baltimore, MD;
  • Historic New Castle, DE;
  • Cape May, NJ;
  • and various theatre presentations in Lancaster, PA.

One doesn’t need to be “Old” or even “Happy” to participate.  They just need to be ready to have a fun day filled with fellowship and enjoyment.


Nifty Wifty was formed several years ago for older church members and friends and meets once a month for good food and fellowship. They meet on the fourth Wednesday of each month (except when holidays conflict) at 11:30 am at Wesleys Restaurant on Rt 273, just ten minutes west of the church.
