Final Round Table Discussion


Mark your calendars!!  Our last Round Table Discussion has been scheduled for Sunday, October 7th, immediately following our worship service.  As we have done with previous Round Tables, we will first share a meal then share the ideas and thoughts that have made themselves known to us through prayerful discernment, after which we will discuss and decide how to move forward as St. John’s United Church of Christ.  Please plan to join us so that your voice made be heard!!!

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, , 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.
