Christian Education

Children’s worship & Lenten Fair

We will be holding a children’s service of celebration on Palm Sunday evening, March 25 at 6:30 p.m. in the Light of Christ sanctuary followed by the Lenten Fair, where there will be fun crafts to make and treats to eat that relate to the themes of Lent and Easter. Young children may bring their Easter baskets to hold their craft projects. We will be learning the songs and readings for this service during Sunday School.

“Brewing Theology!” – First Monday of Month

Join your friends for a wonderful discussion in a relaxing atmosphere with the ability to share in beverage and food!  Brewing Theology is a night when sisters and brothers get together at TAPS located on 378 South of Bethlehem for informal discussions about faith and the world around us.  We will come together on the first Monday of the Month at 6:00 PM (though some of us are there earlier to eat) and share time of fellowship together. Our gathering normally lasts until approximately 8:00 PM.  This is a great place to ask questions and simply process the world around us through a faith perspective!

A Lenten Study

During the season of Lent, Pastor Jerry is leading a special study on Thursday mornings at 9:00 AM on our Light of Christ campus. This study takes a closer look at the culture and the world in which we live to help us discern how we might better proclaim the love of God in this time and this place. Only an open heart and mind is needed to actively participate in this study. It’s not too late to participate!

Women’s Bible Study – March 6 & 20

Women’s Bible Study, St.. Peter’s, Tuesday, March 6 and 20, 9:30 to 11:00 AM. Meeting at St. Peter’s in the Social Room on the parking lot level. The study used is from Gather, the magazine of the Women of the ELCA. Copies are available for each woman. The Bible story focus for the March sessions is the Luke 10: 30-37 story of the Good Samaritan. What does it mean to be a good Samaritan in the world of our faith community, our neighborhood, and our world? Those are some of the questions that the gathered women will consider together. Come again or come for the first time and experience the welcome and caring of the group. It is a time of Bible study, conversation, prayer, coffee/tea and snacks. There is a chair waiting for you.

REMINDER: SNOW POLICY: If Bethlehem Area School District has a delay or school is closed, there will be no Bible Study that Tuesday.  If you are unsure about a cancellation, call the church office (610-867-0519) and listen to the message on the answering machine
