• Relaxed. Real.

  • What We Do

    We genuinely love Jesus and our community by actively serving both.

    Church

    We Gather

    Sundays: 10am

    We are a start-up church. At Relevant, we offer an atmosphere that leads to building healthy relationships. We deeply believe that church is about people and not the facility. Developing relationships that will help people enter and grow in their faith with Christ is our mission. We gather on Sundays to worship and grow in our faith. We view church as a bunch of people who simply live life together. We also believe that church is so much more than simply gathering once a week. This means that we connect with each other throughout the week, encouraging one another, crying with each other, enjoying life together, lending a hand when needed, and pursuing Jesus together.

     

    We Serve

    Our goal is to actively serve our community. Our desire is to display the love of Jesus to all people. We aim to genuinely love those who are a part of our church family, as well as to those who have yet to respond to Christ. Serving demonstrates love in action.

  • How should I dress?

    Relevant is a relaxed atmosphere. You are invited to come as you are, whether it is in a suit or jeans. Most of our attendees dress very casual.

    Are you handicap accessible?

    At this time we are unable to provide handicap accessibility into our facility. Relevant has a small series of steps leading into the building. Our desire is to offer the ability for all people to enter our church and worship. As we continue to grow, our goal is to provide the necessary means for all handicap people to freely enter our church facility.

    Where do I park?

    We have a parking lot located behind the church building as well as alongside the entryway.

    What type of church is Relevant?

    Relevant is a Christian, Bible-centered church that is led by God's Spirit.

    What are the messages like?

    Our sermons are delivered with a warm, humorous, and personal style. Each weekend you'll hear messages that are Bible-based, filled with practical guidance and wisdom, yet easy to understand.

    Sunday Morning

    Children's Ministry

    In our Sunday morning children's ministry, we strive to build a solid, Jesus-centered foundation for our children. We accomplish this by teaching our kids about God - who He is and what He is like. Our desire is to partner with parents and guardians in the discipleship of their children. We achieve this goal by building an atmosphere focused on Jesus and by using a curriculum that is centered on the gospel.

     

    The Sunday morning children's ministry meets in the lower level of the church and begins immediately after the praise and worship. Some children choose to stay with the adults throughout the worship gathering. We are perfectly fine with children hanging-out with us as the pastor presents God's Word.

    Nursery

    Our nursery is located to the left as you enter through our church doors. Our nursery leaders will meet you there with a smile and answer any questions that you may have.

     

    If you are more comfortable keeping your child with you throughout the entirety of the worship gathering, we want you to know that we are perfectly fine with that decision. Please know that we never want you to feel uncomfortable if your child makes some sounds during the service. Our pastor repeatedly tells the church that child noises fail to distract him while he is teaching. In fact, he often tells the church that the sound of children is a wonderful thing and a blessing in a church.

    Baptisms

    One of the things we love at Relevant Church is celebrating changed lives. One of the ways we celebrate this is by baptism. Believing adults and children who understand the meaning of baptism are encouraged to take this step in obedience to Christ. While water baptism does not save you, it provides an opportunity to publicly identify with Jesus. Baptism is an outward symbol of an inward reality and is a picture of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

     

    If you have believed in Jesus for your salvation and would like to publicly identify with Him through baptism, please register for our next baptism by clicking the button below.

    Backpacks for the Homeless

    Our next outreach will be at the beginning of summer. We will be travelling to the Gateway Homeless Shelter in Allentown. Our church will be cooking setting up grills and serving hot dogs, hamburgers, and tasty sides to people in need. We will also hand out backpacks filled with everyday useful items. We are currently taking donations for items to fill backpacks. You can drop off the items at the church. Simply contact us by clicking the button below to notify us when you plan to leave items at the church. The following are some of the items needed: toothpaste, toothbrushes, brushes, bandages, flashlights, pens, gloves, water bottles, and soap. This list will change based on the need. For more information, please contact us by clicking the button below.

    Our aim is to show the love of Jesus through service to those in need. Our ultimate desire is to help them step into a relationship with Jesus.
