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.

A Midweek Lenten Series Based on Luther’s Small Catechism
The year 2017 marks the international observance of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. In honor of that anniversary, our midweek Lenten Bible Study is built around Luther’s Small Catechism. The Small Catechism was designed as a teaching tool of the faith, not just within the church but in the home.
If you are a lifelong Lutheran who remembers studying the Catechism during your Confirmation instruction, or you could use a refresher, or you’re a more recent Lutheran who is wondering what it’s all about, please join us each Wednesday at 7:00 in the Chapel for Evening Prayer, followed by the Bible Study led by Pastor Reinsburrow.
The topics to be studied are:
March 8 The Ten Commandments
March 15 The Creed
March 22 The Lord’s Prayer
March 29 Baptism
April 5 Holy Communion
BOOK FAIR: MARCH 19 AND APRIL 2, 8 A.M.-12 NOON
