The UPG and Fellowship!
“We declare to you what we have seen and heard so that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.” 1 John 1:3
On the 2nd Monday of each month, women in the UPG gather at Perkin’s restaurant at noon for a time of refreshment, fellowship, and wonderful discussion!
On the 3rd Tuesday of each month several people gather in our St. Peter’s Campus social room to make blankets that are donated to Lutheran World Relief. These blankets offer warmth and caring to people across the world in need of feeling God’s love.
On the last Tuesday of each month at 8AM the men in the UPG gather at the Palace Restaurant for breakfast, fellowship and discussion!
On the 3rd Monday night of each month at 6:30PM several people gather to knit prayer shawls and various other goods in order to share these items with folks who are in need both in our community and around the world.
Partnering with the Wreaths Across American program, we place Christmas wreaths on the graves of veterans at the Fountain Hill cemetery.
Bethlehem Crop Walk
The UPG participates in this annual walk to raise funds and awareness of the need for food across the Lehigh Valley. In 2019 we were joined by "Amos" the Moravian College mascot.
Bingo at Cedarbrook nursing home for residents to enjoy a night of fun and fellowship playing bingo.
Striders - Come Walk With Us
Dust off those walking shoes & join the Striders of St. John’s & the UPG for our weekly walks beginning on the last two weeks in April and in May. All are welcome, including family, friends, & even dogs (except when dogs are not permitted
per the location - will be noted in the location description)! Weather permitting, all walks begin at 7:00 PM on Wednesday evenings from April 20 through the Fall. For variation, the location changes each week. Walk for an hour of exercise at your own pace - some of us walk quickly, some of us amble along, but we all have fun! Join us for fellowship & exercise! Let’s be good stewards of the gift God first gave us...our bodies.
