Welcome!

 

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.

A Word from Pastor Ron

  • Advent and Christmas - Every Sunday in Advent, the Prayer of the Day begins with these words, “Stir up O Lord…” Well, what is it we’re asking God to stir up?


November 16th….You are invited!
Enjoy an afternoon of music followed by a casual reception. A concert featuring four local choirs will begin at 4:00pm at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in McMurray on Rt. 19 across from Bob Evans. Each choir will perform separately and all four groups will join together for two wonderful pieces including a fantastic arrangement of the Lutheran classic, “A Mighty Fortress”!
Choirs from Our Redeemer Lutheran (McMurray), Bethany Lutheran (Bethel Park), and Bethel Presbyterian (Bethel Park) are participating along with our very own Faith Lutheran Chancel Choir and a solo performance by music director, Jay McDowell.
We hope to see you there!

SHIM Donation Requests

The suggested foods for December are non-refrigerated juices in cans or bottles.  As always, all non-perishable, unexpired food and household products are welcome at any time, along with diapers of any size, personal care products and cleaning products. Please leave donations in the box in the Outreach Corner.  Also, note the chart that is keeping track of monthly donations to SHIM.  Our goal is to reach 2000# for the year.  Current total is 1703#, which included 268# from  Manna Sunday alone – Thank You!

We are nearing the end of our successful Outreach Holiday Drives.  SHIM received many items from our congregation for their Angel Emporium, and the Glade Run effort will conclude on December 7.  Wish tags were made available for 30 children at Glade Run and all were taken by members to purchase a gift for a particular child.

Teddy  Bear Drive – this year we collected teddy bears to give to the children of Glade Run as a comfort for them in traumatic situations. We recently learned that they are discontinuing the use of stuffed animals.  If you have given bears in the past, your generosity was greatly appreciated! If you have bears that you were ready to bring to church, please give them to another child this Christmas and make them happy with a lovable stuffed animal.  Thanks to everyone who supported this wonderful mission.
