We're so grateful we could worship together this morning, both in-person and virtually! If you missed it or would like to watch again, you can watch the replay of today's streaming service now!

Resources from Worship

The lower-level doors near the Wesley Center are now open to enter and exit for worship. Please keep in mind that there are some who have mobility issues who park on the upper level out of necessity. If that's not you, we ask that you consider parking on the lower level and entering through the lower level doors or walk around the outside of the building to enter through the upper doors. Thank you!

A construction project will impact the elevator and center staircase beginning next Sunday (July 25). For that Sunday, please plan where you park and enter based on your ability to use stairs and if you're able to walk from the lower-level doors to the staircase at the far end of the hallway. We ask that you save upper-level spots for those with limited mobility.

Volunteers Needed for Salem Food Pantry
As part of our merger with Salem UMC, we are part of ensuring the continued success of the vital center-city ministry they began to provide a food pantry for those in need. But your help is needed!

The Salem Food Pantry is an Allentown food ministry providing fresh, locally grown, foods for people in need. Volunteers assist at the pantry on the first and third Fridays and Saturdays of each month. Fridays are preparation days, when food is unloaded, bagged, and readied; and Saturdays are when the pantry is open for foods to be picked up. The pantry needs 4-5 volunteers for each day. Able to help? Contact Lissette Lopez (484-860-4729) or Pastor Ruth Garay (484-744-4603).

The next session is being offered on Monday, August 9, at 6 PM. Location and schedule TBA.
