All Are Welcome…

 OUR MISSION

Where it’s all about God.

fellowshipiconFAITH

Our story is rooted in our relationship with Jesus Christ the Son of God, Savior of the World, hope for all people. Our story is an admission of guilt because of sin and the grace that brings us forgiveness through the sacrificial life, death and resurrection of Jesus the Christ.

We are a biblical church that believes that the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God that shows our humanity and brokenness and reveals to us the hope of salvation through our relationship with God through Jesus the Christ.

We are a sacramental church that believes there is one baptism unto forgiveness for anyone ages 0 to 103. We believe in the sacrament of Holy Communion where Jesus promises to join us in the bread and cup and offers us forgiveness when we participate in the meal.

outreachFELLOWSHIP

Evangelical Lutheran Church strives to be a relational church by creating an atmosphere of welcome to whoever joins us at worship or other events. We are an intergenerational church meaning that from the very young to the very old, all are welcome.

handsOUTREACH

Evangelical Lutheran Church in Duncansville PA is a congregation of the Allegheny Synod (alleghenysynod.org) of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (elca.org). We believe strongly in Jesus’ words to care for others by giving thousands of dollars, food and other items away each year in support of those in need both here and around the world.

Our visions statement sums it up best: Commit—Create—Communicate. We commit to a relationship with God and each other through Jesus. We create an environment and attitude of welcome for everyone to participate. We Communicate who and what we are about in hopes of proclaiming the Gospel with all we meet.

 
 

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.

Psalm 100:4

DONATE

 
Throughout time people of faith have always relied on each other in times of need. We gather to console each other, assist each other and, together, we ask for God’s blessing in our day to day life. We believe that by standing together we may live peaceful lives, helping one another through the good times and the bad.

With this in mind, a church is not simply a place of worship. A church is a central meeting place, where people may gather to worship, support, learn and to simply enjoy each other’s companionship. A church’s activities benefit our families, communities and our spiritual well-being.

Unfortunately, our country continues to face difficult economic times and our church needs your support.
 
We understand that times are difficult but if you have the means, please consider offering a donation to the church.
