About SLCC

South Lebanon Community Church was established on January 1, 2019, but SLCC has roots that stretch back more than 100 years. Born out of the Midway Church of the Brethren in 1902, from part of the Tulpehocken Congregation starting with 195 members.

As the congregation grew they alternated gathering at the Bucher Meeting House on Scheaffer Road and the Midway Meeting House, both in South Lebanon until moving to their current location at 13 Evergreen Road. Since moving to this property, a new sanctuary was built (1951), Sunday School classrooms were added (1987 & 1995), as well as a Family Life Center (2001), which was then enlarged to facilitate worship services (2013).

Although the church has seen many changes and much growth, the goal continues to be faithful to God’s Word and obedient to the call to make disciples. Now as 2023 begins it is time to build again and SLCC is prayerfully seeking the next Senior Pastor to lead them in this part of their journey!
