About us

Welcome to the website of The Mid-Northeast Mission District of the North American Lutheran Church (NALC).

Our Lutheran community of 30+ congregations is located across a large geography (western New York, western Pennsylvania, and West Virginia). Within our community of NALC Lutheran churches, you will find a diversity of small to large congregations; rural, urban, and metropolitan locations; and an array of involvement in local and global missions.

We invite you to spend some time roaming through the pages of our website to find out more about our core values, the mission district, the location of our congregations, and ways you might personally get involved in events and groups across our mission district.

You are always welcome to worship with us at one of our NALC churches (see our Congregations below).  We look forward to meeting you!
