As the United States and the world confronts the COVID-19 virus, we as God’s church will continue to stand together firm in the truth of His Holy Word. As God’s word tell us


He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow to the Almighty. I will say to Lord, My refuge and my fortress my God, in whom I trust. For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.” (Psalm 91:3)


In this difficult time both Mt. Zion and Tressler Memorial will continue to follow the state and federal guidelines suspending worship services until it is deemed safe for us to gather together.  Until then, we will be bringing our weekly worship service to you online. Our worship service will be shared to you live on Facebook, Sundays at 10:30 a.m. and recorded for a later viewing on our website. Our decision to provide worship to you in this way will allow us to continue to share the Lord’s Word with as many as possible. We ask for your assistance in sharing this worship information with your family and friends. The Parish News and Prayer Chain will continue to be available to you on Thursdays via email.


We ask you to please be mindful that even though our churches are not able to meet, we still have great financial needs and obligations. Will you please prayerfully consider continuing your support through your tithes and offerings? These are important in order to continue the work God has called our two churches to fulfill for His Kingdom. If you are able to give, please mail your offering to Landisburg-Loysville Free Lutheran Parish, PO Box 904 Loysville, PA 17047. We thank you for your unwavering support and faith during this difficult time.


If you have any questions, or concerns, or need to speak with Pastor David, you may call the Parish office at any time. Also, if you are in need of assistance with either picking up groceries, prescriptions, etc. we will gladly find someone to assist you. The Parish office number is 717-789-4522.


We thank you for your continuing prayer for our church, communities, state, the United States, and the World. We pray that God’s unconditional and never-ending love bring you His peace during this difficult time in our lives.
