City Lights Church - Worship - Serve - Grow

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.
