Feel The Embrace of Grace


Here are a few of the ways our community is supported. Let us know if you’d like to be a part of the joy that is service.

Sunday School


We have Sunday School classes for all ages:

Nursery, Beginners, Primary, Juniors, Jr. High, Sr. High, Cradle Roll, Adult Bible Class, Adult Fellowship Class,  and Parenting Group.

Our children’s Sunday School is lead by a group of very dedicated teachers who guide children to learn about service to God.

Sunday School Child Drop Off Parking Space

If you are dropping off your child for Sunday School and if you walk your child to class (and are not staying for the highly recommended Parenting Class), please use the Valet Parking space (if available) to free up a regular space for someone who is staying for Sunday School. This parking space is the first one on the left as you enter the church parking lot. However, please do not use it after Sunday School, as this may interfere with the valet service for church. If you have any questions or concerns, contact the church office.

Video Tapes of Children’s Bible Stories

We have started a video tape library of children’s Bible stories located in the Nursery Department. They are VHS tapes and available to all to view. Please stop in and browse our selection. – Jodi Bilger

Bible Study

6 Thursdays: March 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th and April 6th at 7:00 PM

Meet in the room above the church office.

We will read and study the book, “Women of Easter”, by author, Liz Curtis Higgs.

Please contact the church office before 2/12/17 to join the study group. 610-434-2671. The cost of the book is $10.

Feed Our Flock

The Feed Our Flock Committee’s intention is to ministor to our shut-ins, college students, and military persons throughout the year to let them know they remain in our thoughts and in our prayers.

This committee reaches out to the flock in the following ways:

Valentine’s Day – cards and candy
Easter – bags made by the Sunday School and filled with candy by the Candy Makers
Spring – “Exam Survival Sacks” and graduation remembrances
Fall – goodie boxes
December – “Exam Survival Sacks”
Christmas – bags made by the Sunday School, filled with candy by the Candy Makers and other gifts

Helping Hands - Healing Hearts

The Helping Hands – Healing Hearts bereavement ministry continues to reach out to members of our congregation after the loss of a loved one – by caring and sharing. Our first contact with a member who has lost a loved one is to send a sympathy card. A few weeks later, we follow up with a phone call to let them know they are not forgotten and then offer to drop off a remembrance gift. If they would like to talk, we will stay for a short period of time; if not, we will just drop off the gift and a contact card.

Our mission statement is

An ear to listen, a hand to hold, a heart to share, a friend who cares.

Adult Fellowship /Sunday School

The Adult Fellowhip Class meets each Sunday morning from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM on the 2nd floor of the church office. As we grow together in the Christian life, we welcome anyone who desires to learn and study God’s word through our weekly Bible lessons and the fellowship of others.

Adult Parent Class

Our group consists of married couples, single parents, and married parents. Each Sunday morning during the Sunday School hour (9:00 AM to 10:00 AM), we gather to share in fellowship. We help each other with the day-to-day struggles and successes of parenting. We are always looking for new parents to join our group and give their perspective on parenting.
