Relay for Life – copy

Join us Saturday, July 19, at dusk as we light the outside of the church with luminarias as part of the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.

There’s still time to purchase luminarias, which are $8 for one or $15 for two. They will be displayed to remember, to honor, or in support of friends or loved ones that cancer has touched.

To order luminarias, contact Kathy Allaband at 610-347-2086 or at

First Baptist Church has been involved with the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life since 2014. That was the year that Team Prayers for the Journey was formed to be a source of comfort to those in need at the annual Relay for Life events. Participants could come to our tent, and our deacons would pray with them.

In recent years, Team Prayers for the Journey has hosted a mini-relay at First Baptist. There are many ways you can give to support this effort.
