Christmas...in July??

Thinking about Christmas yet?  We are!


Each year, at our annual Lighthouse Christmas for Kids party, we reach out to families in financial hardship by bringing gifts, along with a message of hope and love.   

Kids and parents alike are treated to Christmas carols, a live nativity scene and play, and a visit from some amazing super heroes...and Santa Claus too!  Each child and adult leaves with handfuls of goodies and gifts that get them into the holiday spirit. Most importantly, all of the fun is delivered with the Christmas  sharing the real reason we celebrate – the birth of Christ!  


With your help, we are able to deliver gifts to over 500 children and adults in the Philadelphia area. We accomplish this through the generosity of volunteers and donors like you.  Click here to see how you can get involved!

We are a non-denominational, full gospel church located in Grey's Ferry and serving the Philadelphia community. Led by Pastor Carol Bretz, the Lighthouse is a diverse group of believers united by our shared faith in a loving God.


Our desire at the Lighthouse is for you to know God in a deeper and more intimate way.  We believe that God blesses, heals, and prospers.  Through the teaching of the Scriptures, worship, and prayer, we hope that everyone will experience His love, healing power, and peace in their lives.  We welcome the presence of the Holy Spirit and pray that God's love will touch every person who walks through our doors.
