Why Bethlehem PA?
Simply put, we couldn't say "No." Have you ever felt that irresistible pull? It's like a magnet for your thoughts. We were struck with an undeniable sense, "This is where we need to be." Bethlehem Pennsylvania, right in the middle of the Lehigh Valley, is where the "church around the table" begins!
Sometimes you know something before you understand it. Perspective comes over time and here's what we've discovered....
The City - Bethlehem
Bethlehem is a 75,000 person gem sitting along the banks of the Lehigh River. Bridges and bike paths connect the historic Northern and revitalized Southern neighborhoods with Lehigh University and the 1700s-established Moravian College peering at each other from across the water.
Paved with cobblestones leading you from boutique shops to corner cafes, this town has a rich culture and heaps of potential. It has a strong community identity without any sense of isolation from the rest of the world. (Oh! They also have a Wegmans!)
The Area - Lehigh Valley
Partitioned by green foothills to the West is the city of Allentown with Easton sitting just a few miles to the East along the New Jersey border. This greater tri-city area with Bethlehem nestled in its center is commonly referred to as the Lehigh Valley and possesses one of the Northeast's fastest growing economies.
Perfectly Positioned - Crossroads of Eastern PA
Major metro areas are a stone's throw away, with Philadelphia an hour below and NYC 80 miles to the right, strategically positioning this accessible Eastern PA crossroads for significant movement. We envision the L24 family eventually growing, spreading, and spilling over into these neighboring cities. And though change and growth are inevitable with time and health, Bethlehem isn't just another place on the map for us. It's not just where the movement has begun — it is home!
