Once “the little church on the hill”, we now call ourselves “the beacon on the hill”; for Christ’s Light has begun to shine in the life and ministry of Friedens church in new and exciting ways. We just completed a year of intentional renewal and revitalization facilitated by the interim ministry during our search and call process. We are thrilled to begin 2017 with our called pastor, the Rev. Deborah Schwartz. She already has been a great blessing to Friedens!
Exciting energy and engagement is easily felt within our church community. You may see it in the many smiles on faces on a Sunday morning, in the active lay leadership that works to enrich our faith work with Christian education initiatives, through new fellowship events, in community outreach, and with ongoing mission activities. Our Sunday school has doubled in size. We will be welcoming TEN new members this month. Sunday worship attendance is growing. Joy abounds!
A mission team of 16 recently served at Back Bay Mission in Mississippi. We partner with Trinity Meals in Pottstown and the First Monday Meal in the Upper Perkiomen Valley. We also welcomed the community to Friedens’ Free Breakfast, a time of fellowship, as well as food for both body and spirit. Friedens is actively working to find additional ways to engage and bless our neighbors.
Worshippers find inspiration in our rich Music Ministry and through the gifted spiritual leadership of Pastor Deb. Christian Education flourishes through Sunday school classes, adult study groups, Vacation Bible School, and pursuit of wider church resources.
Visit us on Facebook, our website at www.friedens-sumney.org or in person for Sunday Worship at 10AM. We love visitors! A warm welcome is always guaranteed at our friendly “little church on the hill.”
