Note about Safety Guidelines

We encourage you to practice what you are comfortable with when it comes to wearing masks.  Sunday mornings will continue to follow the shorter service order we’ve been using this year. We’ll also continue to request:  

  • If you, or someone in your family, is showing any symptoms or awaiting test results for the virus, we ask you refrain from attending in-person worship for everyone’s safety.

  • If you start to show any symptoms 72 hours after joining us for in-person worship, please contact the church office (717-486-4280) so that we can take the necessary actions in notifying others.

I'm new, what can I expect when I visit your church?

When you enter our churches, you can expect a warm welcome and friendly faces. No matter where you are from, or who you are, you will always be welcomed here.

Throughout our worship service, we will sing a couple of songs. Songs help to give us words to say to God when we might not know what to say. They help us to thank God. They help us to praise and worship Him. Songs often remind us again that God loves us and that we matter to Him.

There is a time to share where we have seen God during the week. This helps to remind us that God is at work in our lives. We can see Him and what He does week to week.

We take time to pray for, and with, one another. God wants to hear what is on our hearts and minds. We take time to read from the Bible. As in any good relationship, we take time to listen to God. 

After listening to what God is saying through the Scriptures, we dig deeper to translate what it means for our lives and where God is at work in each one of us.


How can I become involved on a Sunday morning?

There are lots of wonderful ways to connect within our churches on a Sunday morning! If you love to sing or play a musical instrument, we invite you to join our choirs or praise team. Have a joy interacting with people, consider joining our connecting and hospitality teams. Enjoy teaching children or adults the love of Christ, we welcome you to be a part of our children or adult ministries.

Do you have Sunday School classes?

Yes, we offer classes for both children and adults between and during worship services.

Do I have to dress up?

We invite you to come as you are and to be comfortable. Some will be dressed in their Sunday best, while others prefer casual jeans and a t-shirt.
