Coffee Chats is a casual gathering of men and women that want to grow in their faith, desire a non-judgmental forum for exploring Christianity, and seek ways to apply Scripture to daily life.  We enjoy fellowship with one another as well as great coffee. Coffee Chats is OPEN TO EVERYONE in the community.
 
Coffee Chats is offered in two 8 week gatherings.  Click on the link for more information.

Faith at the Fireside
Faith at the Fireside is a seasonal, casual, and informal gathering that takes place at our outdoor chapel. All are welcomed to join us for a time of worship, prayer, Scripture reading, and fellowship. Come as you are and gather round the fire as we grow in our faith in meaningful ways! 
 
Angel Keepers have a special place in the church.  They are responsible for the care of our youngest members during the worship service.  Angel Keepers provide a staffed nursery for children from birth until they complete Kindergarten.  During the worship service, children are loved, cared for, and grow in Christ's love through this wonderful ministry.
 
Choir
Music is an important part of the worship service.  This ministry is led by our Choir Director, Zoe Oesterling, and the dedicated choir members who sing in front of the church every week.  Choir practice runs Saturday mornings from September to May from 10:00 to 11:30 am.  The choir performs several special programs throughout the year which take extra time and preparation to make the service special.
 
Family Fun Night
Spiritual enrichment does not only take place within the worship service.  The congregation has the opportunity to gather together for Family Fun Nights, which typically occur during January and February at Kane Road Elementary School.  Scooter races, basketball, parachutes, and pizza make these nights hard to miss!  This program gives church members an opportunity to socialize outside of church and share in fellowship while having fun! 
 
Presbyterian Women is the national women's organization of the Presbyterian Chruch (U.S.A.) and all women who attend the church are welcome to join in the work and missions of this group.  Meetings are typically held on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 in the church social hall.  The New Bethlehem Presbyterian women support ongoing activities such as The Ladle, as well as assisting in activities to support the church and it's members.  They also sponsor a monthly chairity or mission, which they call "A Minute for Missions."  During the month of February, the Presbyterian Women will be collecting blankets and throws for the Beaver County Women's Shelter.  
 
 
New Bethlehem Presbyterian Church believes that nothing is more important than passing on a lively faith in Jesus Christ to the next generation.  Our Faith and Discipleship classes are available for all ages, from toddlers to adults.  Faith and Discipleship classes run from September through May from 9:40 to 10:45 am.
 
"Jesus loves the little children (and adults too!)"
