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

  • Ending Strong - I read an article the other day in one of the clergy journals I receive about the importance of concluding one’s ministry by, “ending strong.” While I don’t plan on ending ministry here soon, it is something that not only clergy but all professions and Christians ought to consider. What does it mean to end strong and why make the effort to?


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!
