A Note from Pastor Edwards:


More than once I’ve been asked the following question about Good News Church. “So, are you more Lutheran or Brethren?” The answer is that we are not a blend of two denominations, but rather part of the Church of the Lutheran Brethren (www.clba.org), based in Fergus Falls, MN with congregations throughout the world. Good News is one of three Lutheran Brethren congregations in Pennsylvania. Theologically, we are Lutheran but unlike many Lutherans, our worship style is informal rather than liturgical.

At Good News, we desire to see you trust Jesus Christ for your salvation. We are saved by God’s grace alone through faith in Christ alone. The Bible is central to all that we do as we believe that it is the Word of God himself and, thus, free from error and authoritative in our lives. As we encounter Jesus in a personal way and are changed by His Word, we grow in relationship with Him and with each other. We worship together, bear the burdens of one another and share the Good News of Christ in the world.

I encourage you to explore our website for more information and join us for worship this Sunday at 10:15 am.
