St. John’s was founded in 1890 as part of the German Reformed Church in America and today is part of the United Church of Christ. We have a rich heritage that includes some notable firsts: the
ordination of the first African-American, Lemuel Haynes in 1785; the ordination of the first woman, Antoinette Brown, in 1853; the first overseas mission program, in 1814. What brought the various
strands of the United Church of Christ together in 1957 was the common understanding that God calls us to mission in the world. We are a proud part of that tradition
Over the years, St. John’s has expressed this commitment of mission to the world in a number of ways. Our church has helped found and support such institutions as Bethany Children’s Home, Phoebe Ministries, serving the aged, and Cedar Crest College. When the Lehigh County Conference of Churches expanded beyond Allentown, our church was one of the first to join. Each month, for 25 years, a crew of volunteers from St. John’s has provided a meal at the Allentown
Ecumenical Soup Kitchen. In the 1960’s, St. John’s hosted the “Hang-Up”, for youth in the community. In cooperation with other local churches we have sponsored refugees and raised funds for Church World Service through CROP walks. Since 1988, we have provided space to the Lehigh County Area Aging for a Senior Center, which is open year-round Monday – Friday from 9:30 – 1:30. We host several Girl Scout troops. Our Community Outreach Benefit continues that tradition of service. For more information about St. John's visit www.stjohnsucccoop.org
