The United Proclamation of the Gospel (UPG) in Bethlehem is a dynamic community of faith which desires to “Proclaim God’s love to this world; one heart at a time!”  Formed in September of 2017, the UPG took a concept of having One Community of faith with two campuses and turned this concept into reality.  This unique concept allows God’s children who gather at St. Peter’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bethlehem (474 Vine Street, Bethlehem, PA 18015), and Light of Christ Lutheran Church in Bethlehem (2020 Worthington Avenue, Bethlehem, PA 18018 (formerly Messiah Lutheran and St. Matthew’s Lutheran)) to come together in both powerful and profound ways.  The UPG offers four public weekly worship celebrations, a host of ministries designed to enhance individual believers faith, and multiple ways in which we can share God’s love through social justice ministries, advocacy, and outreach!  The United Proclamation of the Gospel is proudly part of the Northeastern Pennsylvania Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America!
