Christ Fellowship of Allentown (Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Christ Fellowship of Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA began in 2006 when its pastor, Sam Claudio Sr., was invited by First Mennonite Church of Allentown to join their staff to provide ministry to the surrounding community. When First Mennonite Church’s years of ministry came to an end, Christ Fellowship continued in ministry and remained in the building.

By 2020 it was a group of approximately 30 people of Peruvian, Colombian, Honduran, and Puerto Rican descent. While it was bilingual (Spanish/English), it held services in English.

Together with Bethany United Methodist Church, it provided food for persons who were homeless or in need of food through a food bank program.

The building's facilities were also used by Iglesia Evangelica Roca De Salvacion, a Spanish speaking congregation, and Narcotics Anonymous (NA), a group that provided support to those seeking to overcome addictions.

In 2020 the congregation was part of the Mosaic Mennonite Conference. The ministers were Sam Claudio and Sam Claudio, Jr.
