We are making 2021 a special year of prayer and celebration involving all congregations and people in the county.
The heart of United Churches is our life and work together. Through our life together we have built many relationships and look forward to building many more. We will celebrate with a daily prayer calendar. Currently please pray for:
- Monday, May 10th – St. Michael Lutheran Church, Quiggleville, 1877 St. Michael’s Road, Cogan Station, PA…Pray for our congregation that we may continue to love and serve God by loving and serving our community and our sister churches in Liberia. ✿
- Tuesday, May 11th – Muncy Baptist Church, 9 West Penn Street, Muncy, PA…Pray for personal growth in our Women’s Group, as we resume our meetings on Tuesday mornings. Pray for a closer relationship with Jesus and enjoying conversations with sisters in Christ. ✿
- Wednesday, May 12th – West End Christian Community Center, 901 Diamond Street, Williamsport, PA…Pray for our FOCUSED program and the children and families that the program benefits. Each Wednesday, WECCC packages 200 bags of food to be distributed at one of our area elementary schools, ensuring that no child in our county goes hungry. Pray for physical nourishment as well as spiritual nourishment. Pray that our volunteers receive the same! ✿
- Thursday, May 13th – Ascension Day! As we gaze with wonder, let us not lose focus on the ministry that still needs to be done! ✿
- Friday, May 14th – Daniel’s Closet, Redeemer Lutheran Church, 1101 Washington Blvd., Williamsport, PA…Pray for those without adequate clothing, that they are given what they need to live with dignity and that our communities most basic necessities are met through others sharing of their blessings. ✿
- Saturday, May 15th – Pray for all of our missionaries, that God will help them to announce the Good News boldly and sustain their spirits as they help build the church. ✿
- Sunday, May 16th – Pray for our community resources that help bring food to the table of our neighbors, that God blesses them with abundance.✿
A Monthly Prayer Gathering: We will have the opportunity to gather as people of faith on the last Sunday of the month via zoom for an evening time of prayer between 4 and 4:30.

Kick off Anniversary Celebration Service was held in mid January. You can watch it on our Facebook page, United Churches of Lycoming County. Our Guest Speaker was Bishop Barbara Collins, Upper Susquehanna Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.
As part of our celebration, we will provide service opportunities (each month at different area ministries) lifting up and supporting our area ministries.
It is always a pleasure to work with each of you! You are so willing to give of your time and talents and share the love that God has shared with you! We all know the church is not our buildings. The church is each of us, a visible presence, loving our neighbors. In 2021 we look forward to having many special opportunities to reach out to our neighbors as United Churches!
