Effective July 1, 2015, a new law takes effect that affects volunteers 18-years of age and older who are responsible for the welfare of a child or having direct contact with children will be required  to submit a Pennsylvania Criminal History report from the PA State Police ($10.00) and a Certification from the PA Department of Human Services ($10.00).  As long as you have been a Pennsylvania Resident for a period of no less than ten years, you will not be required to do the Federal Criminal History report from the FBI.  If we fail to do this, we will be charged with a misdemeanor of the third degree.


Church Fellowship

Fellowship activities are scheduled from time to time and include:

*  Activities for the youth

*  Annual church picnic in August

Christ Lutheran Church


Privacy procedures at SRHS mean that the hospital will no longer tell us if people are hospitalized even if they list themselves as Lutherans and/or ask the church to be notified.  Please let us know if you or a family member are in the hospital and any relevant details.  We want to visit and offer support and prayers during your hospital stay.
