Sunday Bible Study

Begins at 9:30 a.m. in the school commons. A new study - "Twelve Ordinary Men." Who are these individuals and what can they teach us about our life as disciples of Jesus? Facilitated by Seminarians Mike Terkula and E.B. Holschuh. Which of the Twelve are you?

Take this fun online quiz based on characteristics of the disciples, who were ordinary men made extraordinary by God, click here.

Sunday Morning – Family Ministry Bible Study

This class meets at 9:30 a.m. in Room 106. Join our active discussion about how and why God designed men and women to think and act differently. Based upon the informative and funny book "Men are like Waffles, Women are like Spaghetti", our study is engaging and may just help men and women understand how to communicate better with each other.  Facilitated by the FFPN team.                                                                                          



We are collecting hats, gloves and scarves for the homeless through Valentine's Day.  The youth of Suburban Bethlehem serve breakfast to the homeless downtown on the third Sunday of the month.  What a wonderful way to reach out to those in need of both nourishment and warmth.  Please bring items to the back of church to the tree and basket area.   




Are you interested in getting together with other mothers who have preschool aged children? Then consider joining MOPs. MOPs is a place where mothers can come together to experience authentic community, personal growth, practical help, and spiritual hope. MOPs stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, a program led by moms with children ages 0-5 years old. These women all have the shared desire to be the best mothers they can be. Our first MOPs meeting will be January 13th from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. After that we will be meeting every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month. Contact Elizabeth Johnston 260-223-1139, Sarah Bowen 260-602-6448 or email us at to get signed up.
