Our Story


In 1868, a few families gathered together in Winfield, Pennsylvania, to start a local baptist church to be God's presence in the farming community of Union County. After over 100 years of faithfulness, Winfield Baptist Church followed God's call to start new churches in the Susquehanna Valley,  to connect with those who have become disconnected from God or the church and to portray and proclaim the goodness of God across our valley. That led to eight adults being sent out to start Sunbury City Church on October 7, 2012, with a vision of connecting people to Jesus and the church in the hope of seeing our great city transformed.


Since then, God has given us a vision of seeing the entire Shikellamy School District and the Central Susquehanna Valley saturated with glory of Jesus Christ through our faithful, generous, and enduring presence. We don't just want to be a building in the city, or even a program that takes from the city, but rather God's people living in the midst of the city, seeking to bring, embrace, listen, and bless our city to the glory of God. 


In just a few short years, we have seen God do incredible things in our midst and in the lives of those who call Sunbury, PA their home, while eagerly awaiting to see God work in even greater ways over the next few years!
