Martin Luther Lutheran Church
Our church is located in a small town nestled in the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains of western Pennsylvania. The church is over 150 years old, which makes it one of the oldest churches in our town.
The story of Martin Luther Lutheran Church is to be read in the lives and memories of men and woman who have been brought into contact with her during the past one hundred and fifty years.
The first congregation organized by Reverend C.C. Brandt of Pittsburgh PA in the year 1853. The prime object being to perpetuate the preaching of the unadulterated Word of God in the tongue of Martin Luther and the administration of the Sacraments according to Christ's institution.
The Congregation, however, needed a resident pastor, since Rev. Brandt could not be present every Sunday, so that the work could be carried on aggressively. Hence, it was decided to call a pastor who could devote his whole time to this parish.
