A Welcome Message from our Rector:

 

Dear Friend,

 

Thank you for visiting the web site of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Allentown, PA.  I want to welcome you to this site wherever on life’s path you may be.  Hopefully within these pages you will get a glimpse of our faith community and what it may offer you on your own spiritual path and journey.

 

We are a diverse community and worship together as a family in all of our differences and variety. Our worship is typically Anglican and each week we gather to celebrate the Lord’s Supper at 8AM and 10:30AM on Sundays.  

 

If you are seeking a faith community or want to re-kindle your spiritual life, we invite you to come and walk with us.  You would be most welcome.

Peace,

What We Do

The Five Marks of Mission - The Mission of the Church is the Mission of Christ

“Mission goes out from God. Mission is God’s way of loving and saving the world…” (Lambeth Conference 1998)



In 1990 the world-wide Anglican Communion established and agreed upon five elements of mission of the Church. The recent General Convention of the Episcopal Church affirmed and adopted these and recommended them for study and action in all parishes as the key statement upholding everything we do and are.

  • To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
  • To teach, baptize and nurture new believers
  • To respond to human need by loving service
  • To seek to transform unjust structures of society
  • To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth

WEEKLY SERVICES

8 AM and 10:30 AM on Sundays

All are welcome!

All are welcome

Christian Formation: Every Sunday  9:15 AM in the Harry Large Room!

Why did Jesus happen when he happened? Why the confluence of the Baptism movement of John and the Kingdom movement of Jesus? Why the tiny villages around the Lake? Why the confrontations in Jerusalem? Why then? Why there?   

What were the priorities of Jesus' proclamation of the Kingdom? How was the status quo of Roman imperial theology subverted by this obscure Galilean whose message continues to indict empire today?

First Light is a 12-session DVD and web-based study of the historical Jesus and the Kingdom of God with two of the world's leading Jesus scholars (John Dominic Crossan and Marcus Borg) on location throughout the Galilee and Jerusalem.
