Thursday Night Live

Thursday Night Live“It’s Thursday Night Live!”

Please join the Lincoln Park Praise Band Thursday Night, December 15, at 7:00 pm for a time of Praise, Prayer, and Fellowship. All are welcome to come and refresh, relax, and refill!



Thursday Night Live is a special monthly worship service held at Lincoln Park on the third Thursday of every month. During this casual worship time, we will sing some songs, say some prayers, hear some devotions, and join in fellowship with one another. This is a great opportunity for anyone who cannot attend worship on Sunday mornings, or for anyone who would like to supplement their weekly worship with a new experience in a different setting.

Sounds and Blessings of the Christmas Season

Christmas Cantata

Our CHRISTMAS CANTATA will be performed SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11, AT 11 AM, with the Chancel Choir, the Bell Choir, trumpet, trombone, flute, piano, and drums. Our narrators will be Sandi Rosencrans and Rich Auman.

Morning Star by Lloyd Larson celebrates Jesus as the Everlasting Light of Christmas. This Light did rise as prophesied, and still shines in even the darkest of nights for people then and for us now. This is the promise of Christmas. Please join us and invite your family and friends to hear this story of hope and redemption.

Christmas Eve Services

Family Service, Christmas Eve – 7 pm

The tiny Baby born in the stable in Bethlehem fills the hearts of Christians everywhere on Christmas Eve. Join us as our children tell you in word and song how their “brothers and sisters” from around the world welcome the Holy Child on this Blessed Night. The customs and music differ, but the spirit of the Christ Child remains the same for all Christians. He fills our hearts with hope for peace, joy, and love. If you have a child, grandchild, or even a neighbor who’d like to participate in our pageant, please call Beverly Perella, 610-334-4197.

Traditional Service, Christmas Eve – 10 pm
Featuring beautiful, majestic Christmas music by our Chancel Choir with special instrumental and vocal music. Preludes begin at 9:30.

Sing Messiah

Music NewsSunday, November 27, 3 pm

It’s our turn to sponsor this beloved concert at the beginning of Advent. Brian Gibson is the conductor, and the Reading Pops Orchestra will accompany. Of course, we’ll have four outstanding soloists.

So, if you want to sing along or simply listen, put this date on your calendar. AND invite everyone you know. We do receive an offering and suggest a donation of at least $10. If you’d like to sponsor this music ministry with a donation before the concert, let me know or place your donation in the offering plate marked Sing Messiah. I’ll include a list of sponsors with the bulletin.

Sing Messiah! is the perfect way to begin our Advent preparations and our individual journey toward to birth of our Savior.

Annual Family Christmas Party 2016

Sunday, December 4, 5–7 pm

Come and share the spirit of the season as we dine, worship, and laugh together, and share our abundance with God’s children. Dinner will be provided so you can come and enjoy during this busy season.

This year we ask you to donate items for New Journey Community Outreach: toothbrushes and toothpaste, shampoo, body lotion and wash, washcloths, small towels, deodorant, combs, and brushes — everyday items that we take for granted. Let’s share with our local brothers and sisters.

For your entertainment we’ll return to days of yesterday with an old-fashioned Chalk Talk by Lancaster County artist Elva Hurst. We’ll also be wrapping books for four Reading elementary classes, making gifts for our shut-ins (our kids will deliver them at a later date), and a Santa Store for little ones to select and wrap a present for their parents (at no cost).

And what would the night be without a visit from Santa?! So promise yourself and your family that you’ll come and be with your church family, as we all prepare for the birth of that tiny baby.

Worship With Us – Nov. and Dec. 2016

In October, we began a six-week sermon series based on Adam Hamilton’s book Half Truths: God Helps Those Who Help Themselves and Others Things The Bible Doesn’t Say.

The season of Advent begins November 27 when we’ll follow the Revised Common Lectionary as we prepare ourselves for Christmas, and the coming of Emmanuel, “God with us.”
