you are welcome here..."

at
Boehm's Church
"A Warm and Welcoming Community of Faith"
  
Join us for Sunday Worship at 10:00 a.m.

Boehm's is an inter-generational and multi-cultural church where people come from a variety of faith traditions.  We are a warm and inviting congregation--small enough that pretty much everyone knows your name!-- and a community of faith that cares deeply about all who worship here. Sunday morning is the time we gather as God's people to worship God together. We believe that worshiping together is one of the most important practices in our church life. All who seek to discover or nurture a relationship with God are welcome.

Though a smaller church, we are full of energy and excited about expressing our faith not only through worship, but in fellowship and outreach to others. We hope you enjoy your visit through the website and look forward to meeting you at church. 

Here's What's Happening at Boehm's Church...


Blessing of the Animals!

Sunday, October 8th

Boehm’s Church will be celebrating its fifth annual “Blessing of the Animals” worship service on Sunday morning, October 8th.  So gather up the whole family — critters included — for a time of joyful blessings and celebration.  We will be giving thanks to God for the joy we find in our relationships with our animal friends.  

Persons who are unable to bring their pets are invited to bring photos or their animal’s favorite toy or other significant item. Children’s stuffed animals are also invited for a blessing. Larger animals (horses, sheep, etc.) are also welcome, but will receive a blessing after the service by the church doors.

Children will remain in worship for the entire service (in other words, no Sunday School).   


 


The first benefit concert of the season will be on Sunday, October 29th at 4:00 p.m. The offerings collected will benefit Interfaith Housing in Ambler. Please join us for an afternoon of wonderful singing and support your community at the same time!


Living the Questions 2.0:

A Different Kind of “Bible Study”

Beginning Tuesday, September 19th @ 7:00 p.m.


People know that at its core, Christianity has something good to offer humanity. At the same time, many have a sense that they are alone in being a "thinking" Christian and that salvaging Christianity is a hopeless task. What is needed is a safe environment where people have permission to ask the questions they've always wanted to ask but have been afraid to voice for fear of being thought a heretic.

Living the Questions is a 21-session DVD and web-based small group study designed for folks convinced that Christianity still has relevance in the 21st Century. It is for people who want to explore the future of Christianity and what a meaningful faith can look like in today's world. Unlike most studies focused on teaching the fundamentals of Christianity by giving fixed answers, Living the Questions is more centered on exploring the questions themselves, to look beyond the traditions and rote theologies in which so many people and local churches seem to be stuck.

Over the months ahead, we will be exploring topics like taking the Bible seriously (but not literally); The stories of creation; the lives of Jesus; evil, suffering & a God of love; debunking the rapture; realizing God’s vision through social justice; and creative transformation. The format of each session includes videos (featuring notable theologians, clergy and philosophers such as Marcus Borg, Diana Butler Bass, John Dominic Crossan, Robin Meyers, Jack Spong, Helen Prejean and John Bell); short teaching moments by Pastor Bill and lots of conversation. Come join us...and explore the questions of our faith.

The first session, to be held in the Pastor’s Study, will be on Tuesday, September 19th at 7:00 p.m. Dessert and coffee will be provided!
