St. John's United Church of Christ Fogelsville

a Small Church with a Big Heart!

Who We Are

No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome at St. John's UCC Fogelsville. We like to think of ourselves as the “The Small Town Church With the Big Heart” and we really believe you’ll be glad you came and worshiped with us! Our Sunday Worship Hour on Sunday is at 10:30 am.

Our ministry began in 1834, and we have a long history in Fogelsville, PA; Allentown, PA and the Lehigh Valley area. Even though our ministry is old, our thinking is not! We are an open minded congregation who believes that God still speaks to us. God’s revelation continues.

We believe that the Bible holds truth for our lives, and it teaches great lessons. We have an adult Bible study that explores the scriptures, seeks to understand the social and historical context of the Bible, and discerns a truth for our time and place. We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit to support and sustain our faith community.

We are a small family church focused on caring relationships within our community and extending God’s grace to the world.
