“How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven”…”Surely the Lord is in this place.” – Genesis 28:17 & 16
At last the time has come that we are able to safely reopen God’s house for worship! The church building has been cleaned and sanitized, including the nursery; we will practice social distancing; and masks will need to please be worn.
“Come; for all things are now ready.” – Luke 14:17
“Open Now Thy Gates of Beauty” written in 1680 by Joachim Neander
Open now thy gates of beauty, Zion, let me enter there, Where my soul in joyful duty, Waits for Him who answers prayer: O how blessed is this place, Filled with solace, light, and grace!
Gracious God I come before Thee, Come Thou also down to me; Where we find Thee and adore Thee, There a heaven on earth must be: To my heart O enter Thou, Let it be Thy temple now.
Speak, O Lord, and I will hear Thee, Let Thy will be done indeed; May I undisturbed draw near Thee While Thou dost Thy people feed. Here of life the fountain flows, Here is balm for all our woes. Amen.
Our scripture text for this Sunday, July 5th is Matthew 11: 16-19 & 25-30. Our sermon will be “Rip Van Winkle Comes to Church”.
I am hoping to worship our Saviour Jesus Christ with you!
“O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.” – Psalm 34:3

Organized in 1859 as the Williamstown Baptist Mission in a schoolhouse outside of Slatington, our congregation moved to West Church Street Slatington in 1891. We soon outgrew that facility and in 1899 acquired the tract of land where our church presently stands.
On Sunday, June 3, 1900, the first public worship services were held in our church building at 509 Main Street where we worship today.
ALL ARE WELCOME
Our congregation extends a warm and friendly welcome to all who seek a relationship with our Lord.
Join us Sundays at 10:45 am for
Lord's Day Worship!
