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.

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!!!

Messiah Celebrates 150 Years

Join us!  All of Messiah Church, people from near and far, friends and family, are invited to honor this milestone!

In honor of the 150th anniversary, a team of dedicated volunteers have been meeting to plan a celebratory Eucharist and Dinner on April 28, 2018

A video will be developed that will show various pictures and events from the ministry and outreach of Messiah. Memorabilia in the form of a Cat’s Meow or other keepsake will be crafted. We will honor in some way baptisms, marriages, confirmands and choir members as special ministries of Messiah Lutheran Church.

A great big THANK YOU goes out to the volunteers who are helping plan our anniversary celebration. Over the next several months historical snippets will be published in the messenger to highlight our journey to the present day.

The first highlight of Messiah’s history: In the summer of 1867 six families left St. Mark’s in Williamsport and began meeting in a former school on Church Street in South Williamsport. The group was pastored by Rev. J.G. Griffith who was called to mission work in Williamsport and vicinity.

Your support of our Anniversary events is appreciated through attendance, help and financial donations. Future meeting dates will be published in the Messenger and Bulletin. Please join us if interested!
