Our Story

Calvary Bible Fellowship Church in Coopersburg cast the vision for Saucon Community Church in 1999.  A group of families from the Saucon Valley which attended Calvary Church had a growing desire to plant a church in their growing community.  In early 2001 Church Extension Ministries of the Bible Fellowship Church began to provide direct oversight for the new mission church.  In April 2011, Saucon Community Church was officially recognized by the Bible Fellowship Conference as achieving the necessary qualifications of a particular church:  it is a self-supporting congregation with qualified leadership and sufficient membership to fulfill the ministries of the church.  By God's grace we are worshiping, growing, and serving Christ and the Saucon Community.
