INFORMATION AND EVENTS

THE FIVE

The Five

We at St. John’s UCC Allentown are blessed to have several retired ministers in our congregation. We are also fortunate that five of them have stepped forward and agreed to lead our congregation during the interim period between ministers. They will be rotating through the pulpit and dividing up the other duties of the minister. It will be an exciting time and a time to learn as we move through these next few months with our interim Ministerial Team. (more…)

STEWARDSHIP

2018 Stewardship

This year’s Stewardship Theme is “What Shall We Bring?”  The Stewardship Committee decided this was an ideal opportunity to lift up some of the gifts that people bring through their presence—financial support as well as time and talents.  We will be highlighting how we give of our time, talents and dollars, and what we get back by giving.

Each Sunday, beginning October 21 through November 11, a different church group will partner with a pastor to lift up the gifts they give to the church and what they receive in return.  Individuals from the choir will share what they receive from sharing the gift of music at each of these four services.

Please join us to learn more about the many gifts we share at St. John’s.
