As believers in Jesus Christ, we strive with unconditional love and selflessness – using our God-given gifts – to provide a nurturing shelter for those seeking a Christian home. We offer opportunities for spiritual growth through worship, education, fellowship, prayer and Christian action throughout our community and the world.

2020 Orwigsburg Community Thanksgiving Eve Service  

St. John’s United Church of Christ, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church & Salem United Methodist Church




Children’s Sing-Along Video







Praise be to God! With Schuylkill County now “green”, we will be resuming our normal in-person worship service on Sundays at 10 AM June 28th. We are excited to gather once more and will be taking many precautions (wearing masks, social distancing, modified service format, etc.) to protect those in attendance.

While we are certainly looking forward to seeing everyone again (or welcoming new people to our wonderful church), we also understand that now may not be the preferred time for some to return to in-person worship. For those who are perhaps not feeling well or just concerned for their health and safety, we still intend to record our service and make it available on our website.

We hope to see you soon!

-Bill Holler, SJUCC Consistory President
