Welcome to Messiah Lutheran Church!

Located at the corner of West Southern Avenue and Howard Street in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, a small community nestled in the foothills of the beautiful Allegheny mountains, Messiah Lutheran church is a large congregation of the Upper Susquehanna Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  One of the most recognizable features of our church is the crescent moon on our steeple.  Click on the link below to learn more about its symbolism.

Whether you live in the area, are traveling through, or planning to relocate in north central Pennsylvania, it would be our joy to have you worship with us.

This Sunday is Pentecost. Remember to wear red!


Five young adults are prepared to affirm their Baptism in the Rite of Confirmation on May 24. The young adults completing their instruction are Gwendalyn Elizabeth Blass, Benjamin William Byham, Abigayle Rose Greevy, Zachary Robert Haefner, and Olivia Mae Welter. Bishop Driesen will be present to confirm these youth members at our 10:45 liturgy.

We pray that God the Holy Spirit will be with these confirmands to gift and nurture them in faith and in life. Confirmation provides these youth members an opportunity for affirmation of the covenant that God made with them in Holy Baptism. As parents, sponsors, and fellow members, we rejoice with them.
