Mission and Core Values
What is the history of the church?
Camp Hill Presbyterian Church was founded on September 21st, 1916 with 47 members. The congregation met in the upper room over the former Camp Hill Borough Hall until 1925, when the congregation marched from that building to the present sanctuary. In the 1930s additional rooms were added to the few in the initial building and the congregation grew to 250 members. The church’s first pipe organ was added and the congregation grew to 791 in 1950. In 1954 it became necessary to conduct dual church services as the membership had grown to 1,200. In 1956 the preschool opened. The Christian Education Wing was added in 1959. In 2008 the original sanctuary, welcoming, and fellowship spaces were extensively remodeled and updated. At the same time, thanks to a generous endowment, a new pipe organ was installed which is recognized as one of the finest recital instruments of its type in the area. In 2016 the congregation again marched from the old borough hall to the sanctuary to celebrate the church’s 100th anniversary.
Camp Hill Presbyterian Church Is Inclusive
Statement of Welcome & Inclusion
As followers of Jesus, we affirm the dignity and worth of every person as created in the image of God. We are committed to creating an inclusive space of belonging and safety. Therefore, this community of faith welcomes into full participation, membership, and leadership, persons of diverse age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical or mental ability, level of education, class, or income.
Rooted in the Reformed tradition, we affirm that “God alone is Lord of the conscience,” allowing for a breadth of diverse theological and biblical interpretations. We covenant to accept, respect, and love one another as we apply our faith in the circumstances of our lives and in the matters of our world.
