Groups, Studies, Events & Opportunities:
Welcome to Bethlehem Musical - The setting is a beautiful Hotel in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania where families have gathered for generations to celebrate the season. Unfortunately, this may be the last year of business for this charming family owned inn.
Presentations will take place on Saturday, December 16 at 3 pm & 6 pm, and on Sunday, December 17 at 6 pm. These presentations are our gift to our church family, friends and community. There is no charge and tickets are not required. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each performance.
SERVE Saturday - There are many opportunities to volunteer inside and outside our church walls. Three to four times a year we come together as a church family to serve our community as the hands and feet of Jesus. We volunteer our Saturday morning in areas inside and outside the buildings in our community to repair broken fences, clear overgrown shrubbery, pack food boxes, sew items for missions, write cards of encouragement, clean up areas around our church, pray for our neighbors, and so much more. There is something for every skill, talent and ability. For more information, visit the SERVE Saturday page of this website.
Baptism - If you feel called to take the next step in faith, you may be ready for baptism. Baptism is a public declaration that you are a new creation through your faith in Jesus Christ. For more information, call or text 941-877-0620 and ask to speak to a pastor about your baptism.
