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.
