Who We Are

Jesus' invitation to his table is an important part of our community life and so we celebrate holy communion every week. Our Saturday worship service are informal and somewhat contemplative. Our Sunday worship service is rich in liturgy and there are many opportunities to take on active roles in assisting the congregation in worship, such as in the choir, as acolyte, assisting minister, communion assistant, usher, greeter etc.
On Sunday at 10:30a.m. we offer Sunday School for all ages, including confirmation class. On Wednesday we meet for a lectionary Bible Study at 9:30a.m. and throughout the week for other service and learning opportunities. Please contact the church office for details 610 779 1181. Come and enrich our community with your presence, gifts, and questions.

Our Services

What are services like?
Saturday: informal & contemplative. There is no hymn singing. Every other week we use piano music in deepening our presence in worship; on the other Saturday evenings we work with silence. Sunday: a creative traditional Lutheran liturgical worship and music. Followed by a coffee social and Sunday School for all ages (for adults: Bible Study and a Discussion Group). We celebrate Holy Communion every Saturday and Sunday.

What is the community like?
Contemporary Pennsylvania Dutch - rooted, friendly, down to earth, live and let live, grounded in faith. It is a country congregation, but closely connected to this world.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We welcome everyone. We take your and our own questions, seeking, and doubting serious.
