Strong families start with solid foundations. We want to be a part of helping you keep your family strong, healthy, and vibrant. That’s why we offer opportunities throughout the year for families to worship together and play together. FPC Bethlehem is a place where you can Know God, Love People, and Serve the World with your family.
EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
The fun doesn't have to stop simply because you've grown up. Kirk Camp is the ultimate, all-inclusive summer family retreat where FPCB families can explore their faith and draw closer to God, to creation, and one another. Meet other families in worship, bible study, at meals, on the beach, on the court, or playing games.
As summer ends in September, we gather together for food, fellowship and fun during an old-fashioned church picnic. We grill hamburgers and hot dogs, share the best of our homemade recipes, and all ages play games under the shade of our front lawn. Watch the EVENTS page for more information on the Annual Picnic and how you can get involved.
THANKSGIVING DAY CELEBRATION
You are invited to join us at 10 a.m. in the Sanctuary on Thanksgiving Day for a festive worship service of praise and thanksgiving. Music will be offered by all five choirs and special guests, The Philadelphia Brass. Members of our church will also share their reasons for giving thanks. Arrive early. This is one of the most popular services of the year.
Following worship, you are invited to Thanksgiving dinner in Fellowship Hall. To make reservations for dinner, please call 610-317-6162, ext. 321, or e-mail Linda Frankenfield or Shirley Rood.
CHRISTMAS EVE FAMILY SERVICE
Join us for our Christmas Eve Family Service in the Sanctuary. Led by the children’s choirs and discipleship pastor, the family service is filled with familiar carols, costumed players, and candle lighting. The service will begin at 4 p.m. with a special music prelude offered by FPCB children, youth, and families beginning at 3:45 p.m.
Children are also invited to bring a gift for Baby Jesus by remembering other children who may be cold, hungry, and needing care, just like Jesus when he was born in a stable. Gifts such as baby supplies, new or nearly new toys, books, or clothing should be unwrapped. Gifts are distributed to local charitable organizations.
