The Power of the Cross

Galatians 2:20  I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.  The life I now live in the body,  I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.  

A Word From Pastor Dan

During these time of uncertainty with the COVID-19 click to view an encouraging video from Pastor Dan.

We’re so glad you’re here.

St. Thomas is an Evangelical, Christ-centered, Bible teaching, loving family place to call home in Bernville, Pennsylvania.  A bit traditional, a bit contemporary, but always seeking to be a relevant witness of Jesus Christ to the culture around us.  We’d love to invite you to come, connect, and grow with us, starting with worship this Sunday. Our contemporary worship service begins at 8:00am and our traditional service begins at 10:30am. Childcare is provided at the 10:30am service.

Updated Statement for Church Cancellation Due to COVID-19

March 30, 2020

 

Dear Church Family,

 

First of all, thank you so much for the way that you have been caring and communicating with each other over the last few weeks. It has been wonderful to see the Body of Christ at work. It has been a difficult time for us, as elders, to balance a sense of trust in the Lord and our community responsibility. We are reminded of Romans 13 – that the government is a divinely appointed entity whose purpose is to protect society. And while we trust the Lord with our health and well-being, we must also practice being submissive to the governing authorities that God has placed over us.

 

With that being said, upon the recommendation of our Governor and the CDC, the elders are closing the church through April 30. This also includes the offices. Employees will still be working but physical access to them at the church will be “emergency only.” We want to make sure that those who serve us are protected as well. So, if you have business to tend to with the church, please hold off or communicate through phone or email. Please do not just drop in for a chat.

 

Pastor Dan will still be presenting a sermon each Sunday that will be posted on the church website found under the SERMONS tab and will be restarting his blog writing, “Black, White, and Shades of Grey” https: //pdanlute.blogspot.com/ in order to encourage and help others stay connected. You can find this link also on the website under the RESOURCES tab.

 

Please note that all community Lenten services are canceled. We are still planning on having a videoed Good Friday chalk talk service with Pastor James Snyder.  Pastor Dan will also be doing a videoed Resurrection Service.

 

Please continue the good work of the Body of Christ. Call or email a few people each day to check in with them. Make sure that our elderly have enough food, medicine, or other needs. If you know of anyone in need, please call the office. We have individuals who are willing to run and do essential errands. Pray and read the Scriptures as much as you spend watching the news. Stay encouraged. Stay connected.

 

We leave you with Psalm 9:9-10 “ 9 The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. 10 Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.” (Ps. 9:9-10 NIV)

 

Blessings and be in good health,

 

The Elders of St. Thomas Church




8:00am - Contemporary | 10:30am- Traditional

Childcare is provided at the 10:30am service


When you visit on a Sunday morning, you have a choice of two services: 8:00am and 10:30am.  We hope that both make you feel comfortable and help you worship the Lord and learn from his Word; however, if you prefer a certain style, there are a few differences between them. 

 

Our 8:00am service includes contemporary music with a keyboard, guitar, violin, tambourine and drums while the 10:30am service is traditional hymns.  The sermon is the same at both services, and there is a fellowship time between them at 9:00am with Sunday School at 9:15am.  Nursery childcare is available at the 10:30am service for children ages newborn through Kindergarten.  Children 1st through 6th grades are welcome to stay with their parents during the service or dismiss to Children's Church after the Children's Sermon.  


Wednesday Night Prayer and Bible Study - 7:00pm

Our Wednesday night service meets in the Chapel and consists of singing some old hymns and a short time of prayer followed by a more in-depth Bible study.
