Who We Are
Christ Presbyterian Church of the Slate Belt ( formerly known as The Presbyterian Parish of Bangor/Roseto)
The Presbyterian Parish of Bangor-Roseto certainly has one of the most colorful and fascinating histories of any church in the Slate Belt region of Northampton County. The Parish congregation is comprised of people from three Presbyterian Churches in the Slate Belt. The First Presbyterian Church located on Second St. in Bangor, The Peniel Presbyterian Church located on N. First St. in Bangor, and the Roseto Presbyterian church . The first Presbyterian was comprised of predominantly English, while the Peniel Presbyterian Church began as a Welsh speaking Presbyterian Church, and the Roseto Presbyterian church served the Italian residents of Roseto. These varied ethnic backgrounds have provided the Parish with a proud heritage.
The many important achievements of each individual church are too numerous to mention, but the cultural background and heritage of each church have through the years fulfilled a common need; to glorify our love of God and His gifts of Jesus Christ to humankind.
We welcome all who worship here. Our church doors are open wide to any who come seeking God’s presence and healing, and the fellowship of Christian community. We invite you to make this your church home.
