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.
May 6 is Music Sunday. Anyone who has ever sung in a choir, either her or elsewhere, even as a child are invited to join with Messiah’s choris in a special “Reunion Choir.” If you would like to participate at the 8:15am service, come at 7:30am. For the 10:45 am service, arrive at 10:15 am.
Messiah’s annual Mother’s Day Dinner will be Wednesday, May 9, at 6:00. Crouse Catering will provide a delicious turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Tickets will be available for purchase after both services in the narthex April 22 and 29. Prices: $13.00 for adults, $6.00 for children 6 – 12, and children 5 and under are free. And remember – all females are daughters, so join us for this fun evening – you don’t have to be a mother to come – you had one!
The next clothing exchange will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2018 from 8-11am. Help is needed to set-up on Friday, May 4 from 10am to Noon and Saturday and also during and after the sale. Gently used clothing and accessory donations are still being accepted. Items may be placed in the blue bin in the telephone alcove.
The church library is a wonderful way of reading Christian books, watching Christian themed DVD’s and deepening our faith. It’s easy to sign out books. However, please remember to return them in a timely fashion so others may enjoy them as well. If you haven’t finished your book, you can return it and sign it out again. Thanks!!!
