Welcome to Our Church
City Lights Church is a Non-denominational Church in the city of Scranton for people just like you! Whether you have grown up in church or have no background in Christianity, you can call City Lights home. Our focus is quite simple: Worship God, Grow with each other, and Serve our city.
City Lights Church is a place that is culturally engaging with its foundation firmly found in the scriptures. We are a blend of modern worship, and Gospel-Centered preaching set in the context of a relaxed environment that cares more about the condition of your heart than your attire. In other words there is no formal dress code, just clothes. Join our church for an upcoming service in Scranton at 10:30 am or feel free to contact us for more info or to speak to a pastor.
Join us the second Saturday of every month for a night of worship and encountering the presence of God. This is a special time where anyone who desires to worship is welcome, regardless of what church you regularly attend. These nights start at 7pm.

Growing up in church every New Year seemed to have a fast attached to it. If you type 2016 church fast into Google you will find countless churches that have started a fast within a few days of the New Year. While I have no problem with any one doing this; I do think we […]
