Today's sermon was inspiring .
A people friendly congregation who care about all children of God.
There is a need for someone with a pick-up truck to transport a sofa and chair from Lehighton High-Rise to a previously homeless family in Lansford. If someone and a helper can do this it would be greatly appreciated. Please contact Harold at 484-464-0542 home, or 484-464-3726 cell. Thank you so much.
Ground cover around bell structure is completed. If you are at church or going past and you have a few minutes please give the plants a drink. Thanks, Ted
"Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs." (Psalm 100, verse 2, New International Version) Hi friend. If you love to sing; if you love to sing joyous, uplifting songs to and about our Lord and you've been searching for a group of other fellow Christians who love to "make a joyful noise unto the Lord" too, the choir at Grace St. Paul's UMC invites you to join us. We meet for practice on Wednesday evenings from 7 to 8 PM in the sanctuary at Grace St. Paul's United Methodist Church. We sing after the offertory during the first morning service Sunday mornings. Songs we've sung have mostly consisted of hymns and southern gospel music, but we also mix in some contemporary praise and worship favorites. If you'd love to make a joyful noise unto the Lord with us, contact or come see David Westrip, Kathy Westrip or me, Jim Hunt.
Who can I contact about having a prayer shawl given to our daughter?

A sanctuary of hope and Jesus' love for everyone! SPECIAL SCHEDULE DECEMBER 2016 & 1/1/17 12/18 - one service 10am 12/ 24 - 6pm Family Service, 7:30 Candlelight Service 12/25 - one service 10am 1/1/17 - one service 10am Regular Schedule: COME WORSHIP: Sunday at 9 AM. ~ Stay for coffee, refreshments, and fellowship immediately following the worship service. ~ reframe service & Children's Sunday School @ 10:45am ~ There are two weekly Bible study groups: Tuesday at 7 PM and Thursday at 9:30 AM.

[11/02/20]   Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Know that I am holding all in prayer during this week of the presidential election. I hope that the people called Methodists are taking advantage of the privilege of casting their votes. However, I am aware that there are people among us who are fearful for their very lives at this time as rumors of violence are circulating. I ask you to be in prayer, be in harmony with one another and call upon the Prince of Peace to quell any violence, discrimination and abuse. The following prayer was shared with the Council of Bishops, who are meeting this week. May this be our prayer for tomorrow:

Holy God, One yet Three. Reach into the abundance of your companionship. Bring forth unity ad healing in our land. Cover this election with fairness and dignity. Dismantle voter suppression and intimidation. Grant simple, safe, equal access to the polls. Make the way for all voices to be heard, all votes to be counted. Cover this election with grace and integrity. Protect the process from corruption. Strengthen all working for an honorable election. Make the way for all voices to be valued. All results to be trustworthy. Cover this election with compassion and hope. As we await results and move into a new era, soften and soothe hard, violent hearts. Rain down generosity of spirit and a commitment to the common good, so all may know blessing and opportunity and belonging. Amen.

[10/27/20]   A Call to Prayer for Philadelphia
From Bishop Peggy Johnson

I awoke this morning to news reports of yet another fatal shooting of an African American young man in an incident with law enforcement. The streets of West Philadelphia have been filled with unrest and grief. Videos of this young man’s mother are heart-wrenching, and we are numb with sadness for this continual bloodshed. There are no words that adequately describe this pain but, “the Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words.” (Romans 8:26)
I call us, people of God, to pray for justice. Pray for peace. Pray that the investigation of this incident will shed light and truth. Pray that God will comfort the family of Walter Wallace and the many who have been injured and experienced loss during this tragedy.
