Where are you located?
We are located in the heart of the Lehigh Valley, just south of Allentown. Take the Cedar Crest Blvd exit off I-78 and you are just minutes from our church. We are located near the Trivet Restaurant in south Emmaus. Use the interactive map below for specific directions and a map.
What can I expect on my first visit?
The main entrance to our church is near the end of Colebrook Avenue, but you can also enter from Buckeye Road if you’re coming from the south or west. The main lobby is through the double-glass doors in the newer part of our building. Be sure to stop by our Welcome Center if you are unsure where to go or have any other questions regarding your visit.
At 9:00, most adults attend our small-group Bible discussion tables. These groups are smaller settings where you are invited to meet people, perhaps enjoy some coffee and donuts, hear a teaching lesson and then discuss it in your smaller group. The best way to get to know people at LVBC is to visit one of these adult Bible discussion groups.
Following that is our main worship service at 10:15 where you will enjoy beautiful and inspiring music followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Hammett. This service is a little over one hour in length.
What about my children?
Starting with an excellent nursery, there is something special for every age child!
At every service on Sunday and Wednesday, there is a safe, clean, and highly staffed nursery for children under two, as well as classes for toddlers ages 2-3. For these children, parents will receive a pager so that the nursery attendants can easily contact you if there is a need.
Sunday School (9AM)
In addition to the nursery, we have classes for children and teenagers all the way up to adults. The ushers will gladly direct you to the right classrooms. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child.
Morning Service (10:15AM)
Nursery and junior church for children ages 2-5 in the Noah Room.
Evening Service (6PM)
Nursery and junior church for children ages 2-3 in the Noah Room.
Nursery and King Kubs for children ages 2-5 in the Noah Room as well as Masters Club for children in grades 1-6 in the Chapel.
How should I dress?
There is not a dress code at Lehigh Valley Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at LVBC!
Am I expected to participate in the offering?
No. We don’t invite you to Lehigh Valley Baptist Church for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God’s Word, and a place where you can grow in God’s grace. Please don’t feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
If there’s something we missed on this list, just give us a call, or ask someone when you arrive. Whether you’re new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it’s been a long time since you’ve attended church at all, we hope your first visit at Lehigh Valley Baptist will be awesome! We exist to serve you and your family, and we are looking forward to meeting you personally. We hope you’ll feel right at home from the very first moment you arrive! Let us know how we can serve you better, and we hope to meet you this Sunday!
