History

On May 1st, 1994, we held our first service at the White Haven Center with four households attending.  Later, in June of that year, services moved to the Altamont building, and in August we had our first baptisms.

By April 1995 we became a Mission Church, and in May we had our first observation of the Lord’s Table. 

In September 1995 we moved to our current building at Roosevelt and 19th Streets.  And then the church began to grow but not without growing pains.

 In 1999 Mark England was called as pulpit supply and stayed for two years.  Chris Bogosh briefly pastored from 2007 until 2008.

The Hazleton flock once again sought God’s leading in supplying a shepherd.   Pastor Paul Brace was chosen and he and his family arrived in 2009.   He was installed on May 2nd.

The Lord blessed in mighty ways, and through multiple channels, the congregation greatly expanded in 2015.  By the end of 2016, the congregation had 43 communicant members, 32 baptized members, and 4 adherents.  Average Sunday morning attendance is 65.
