A new RIC community, St. Peter's Lutheran Church

St Peter Lutheran Middletown PA

We are pleased to announce our newest RIC community – St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Middletown, PA.

St. Peter's has a rich history dating back to 1764 when the lot of ground on which the first Sant Peter's Kierch was erected. The same year, King George III of England through John Penn, governor of Pennsylvania, granted permission to the Lutheran congregation of Middletown to collect funds for the erection of a building which to worship. The cornerstone was laid on July 13, 1767, bearing the name "Sant Peter's Kierch".

They continue their ministry today by being aware of and providing for folk's needs in their community, conducting programs that support ELCA and Lower Susquehanna Synod and community campaigns, and developing opportunities for congregational members to offer their time and abilities in social ministry efforts.

Please join us in welcoming, St. Peter's Lutheran Church to the RIC community!
