Sunday Morning Worship
Christ Church is committed to biblical teaching and preaching. This commitment is reflected in our Sunday morning service that includes worship of our Lord through song, prayer, and reflection on His Word. Sunday Morning Worship is held each week and starts at 10:30 AM.
Biblically based lessons are presented to elementary-aged children during the Sunday Morning Worship service.
Christian Education Classes
Sunday School classes are available at Christ Church for all ages–nursery through adult. These promote commitments to studying, memorizing, and applying God’s Word in our daily lives. Sunday School starts each Sunday at 9:15 AM.
Sunday Evening Bible Study
A Bible Study is led at Christ Church on the second and fourth Sunday evenings of the month. This provides a good opportunity for discussion and to have questions answered. These studies start at 6:30 PM.
Christ Church is ministering in our community and around the world through an ambitious missions ministry that represents 15% of our budget. We provide financial and prayer support for missionaries in the United States and abroad. We fill stockings with gifts for a Philadelphia inner-city ministry, fill shoeboxes with gifts for Operation Christmas Child, collect items of clothing for the Allentown Rescue Mission, and hold an annual “baby shower” to gather supplies for Care Net Pregnancy Centers of the Lehigh Valley.
Vacation Bible School
Each year Christ Church reaches out to children in the community with a Vacation Bible School. The 2011 presentation will be held Sunday June 26 through Thursday June 30 from 6:15 to 8:45 PM and use a curriculum titled “Gold Rush — Discovering the Rock of Ages” from the Answers in Genesis organization.
Christ Church presents a Live Nativity celebration on a December weekend each year. Church members work together to enact the birth of Christ and visit with attendees over cookies, coffee, and hot chocolate. In 2010 over 300 people from the community stopped by to watch the presentation, interact with live animals, and learn from God’s Word. This is our “Christmas Card” to the community.
Small Group Bible Studies
Several Bible Study groups meet at the Church or in members’ homes. These are times of investigation into the Bible and of prayer. Meeting times vary to accommodate busy schedules.
