San Martín de Porres Lutheran Church

 

¡Bienvenidos! a la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana San Martín de Porres. San Martín comenzó en los 1980 como una misión para la comunidad Latina de Allentown. Fuimos establecidos como la primera congregación nueva de la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en America, formada en el año 1988. Estamos bendecidos de haber celebrado 25 años de adoración y ministerio Latino.

Estamos bendecidos de tener una colaboración con St. John’s Lutheran Church. Celebramos nuestra misa en su hermoso santuario. Nuestra misa son todos los domingos a la 1:00 P.M. También trabajamos juntos en varias actividades como la Escuela Biblica de Verano y Catesismo para los niños de las dos congregaciones y del vecindario.

Dicen que nuestra comunidad de adoración es como una pequeña “Naciones Unidas.” Somos de las islas del Caribe y también de Centroamérica y América del Sur. Reflejamos esta variedad de cultura especialmente con la música en nuestro servicios de adoración.

Te inivitamos a adorar con nosotros. Te invitamos a crecer en la fe junto con nosotros. Te invitamos a usar tus dones y habilidades que Dios te ha dado. Te invitamos acompañarnos en nuestra misión de compartir las buenas nuevas de nuestro Señor Jesucristo con todos.

 

(Translation)

Welcome to San Martín de Porres Lutheran Church. This congregation started as a mission to the Latino community in Allentown in the early 1980’s. We were established as the first new congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America which was formed in 1988. We are blessed to have celebrated 25 years of Spanish-language worship and ministry.

We are blessed to be in participation with St. John’s Lutheran Church. Our worship is held in their beautiful sanctuary. We worship each Sunday at 1:00 P.M. We are also doing some joint activities such as Vacation Bible Study and Catechetical classes for children of both congregations and for the neighborhood.

Our worshipping community has been described as a “little United Nations.” We come from the Caribbean Islands and Central and South America. This variety of culture is particular reflected in our worship music.

We invite you to worship with us. We invite you to grow with us. We invite you to share your God-given gifts and abilities with us. We invite you to accompany us in our mission to share the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ with all those around us.
