The meetings are minimal (usually 2).  This is a big event and the planning and organization is crucial.  Please contact Jade or Karen. The first meeting will be announced shortly.

  New Summer Worship Hours 

Summer Worship begins at 9:30AM on Memorial Day Sunday, May 27th


 
    Expanding our view of Service  

We often think of serving in terms of Matthew 25: supplying food and clothing; caring for the sick, incarcerated and other “least of these” members of society — serving Jesus in the process. But we also can serve him with our unique talents and by doing things we love.

For example, Ged King, a barber in England, devotes some of his time off to giving homeless people free haircuts. Imagine Jesus saying, “For my hair was long and scraggly, and you cut it” — or “My heart was lonely, and you played music to lift my spirits. I could no longer read small print, and you read to me. I have to work two jobs, and you invited my child to spend afternoons crafting with you. My car broke down, and you repaired it.” Then the King will say, “Come, you who are blessed by my Father … whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” (Matthew 25:34, 40, NIV; emphasis added).

INFORMATION: 


Inclement Weather

In the event it becomes necessary to cancel Services at any time during the winter, we will notify WFMZ in Allentiown.  They will post the information on their website, www.wfmz.com , and we will also notify WLEV 100.7 in Bethlehem of the closing.  Even when we have Services, we ask that you use your best judgement for your own safety when deciding to venture out in inclement weather.
