Christmas is a wonderful time of year. Unfortunately, there can be a dark side to it. Many people get stressed or depressed because they feel like they didn’t buy enough or give enough. While that is unfortunate, it doesn’t have to be that way. Let us consider “the reason for the season”. Christmas is the […]
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.

Come join us on Monday, Dec. 22nd at 7pm for a special evening of worship. We will be celebrating the Birth of Christ together by singing some Christmas classics as well as other worship songs that celebrate the work of the cross and the coming of our promised Savior. We will also have a time […]

So much of our lives are based around goals. We all have a goal. For some of us it’s a better career while for others it could be to lose a few pounds. To live in a better house, find our soul mate, fix a broken relationship, buy a new car, or get a degree. […]
Most people acknowledge some “Higher Power” or God even if they never read the Bible. In Genesis 1:1, it says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”. Then the Bible goes on to describe the virtues and values of the eternal and living God and how to connect with Him. One question […]
Why do people attend church? Does that do anything for God or for people? It depends. In John 10:10 Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly”. Going to church to check out what people are wearing, who’s dating whom, or to feel religious does not lead to […]
Right from the beginning, God has addressed and endorsed the idea of long life as part of His covenant with man. In Genesis 6:3, He said “yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years”. This wasn’t a one-time proclamation. In Psalm 91:16 he states “With long life I will satisfy him and show him My salvation”. On top of that, in Proverbs 3:1-2, He admonishes us “My son, do not forget my law, but let your heart keep my commands, for length of days and long life and peace they will add unto you”. Praise the Lord for long life!
