Welcome to Faith Lutheran Church of Upper St. Clair!

Faith Lutheran Church of Upper St. Clair, PA has been witnessing to the Lord and serving the South Hills area of Pittsburgh since 1949. We are a mid-sized family-oriented congregation with a wide range of age groups and diverse backgrounds. We have been growing steadily and consistently, yet value our relationships and strive to keep a personal connection as a reflection of our walk with the Lord. Liturgy begins at 10:30 AM on Sunday and is lead by Reverend Ronald Weryha. Our Christian Education program offers an expanding Sunday School program, two Adult Discussion Groups, and Small Group Ministries. Music is an important part of our worship which includes an Adult Choir and a Handbell Choir. Our goal at Faith is to help individuals make and strengthen their connection to God, to other people, and to the Christian Church in a welcoming and supportive environment.

SHIM Food Pantry:
The suggested foods for January are canned and dried beans and lentils.  Our December donation was 98#, bringing our 2016 total to 1196#.  The total for 2015 was 1584#.  Our Sunday School class of 3, 4, and 5 graders collected and delivered 25 Birthday Cake kits, consisting of a cake mix, a can of frosting, candles, and a birthday card.  They will continue this project through the coming year – thanks to them for their enthusiastic involvement!  The donations of food and money through this year are so gratefully needed and appreciated by the clients of SHIM.  It is hoped that this coming year will find an increase in giving to our neighbors in need.  Thank you all for your continual help.  The SHIM Donation box is located in the vestible in the Outreach Corner.

The need for food increases in the South Hills as the food pantries of SHIM are used by more people. There are now sites at the SHIM Center at Bethel Park, SHIM Family Center at Prospect Park, and Baldwin United Presbyterian Church. Here, families may pick out the items they need for nutritious, balanced meals. Last year, SHIM’s pantries served more than 600 families and 1,700 individuals.  For more information on any of SHIM’s activities and events, please go to shimcares.org .
