What to Expect on Sunday at CHPC

Camp Hill Presbyterian Church is an inclusive community of faith that worships, learns, serves, and shares together.
Frequently Asked Questions

What are your Sunday services like?

Worship services include joyous prayer and praise, singing, choral and instrumental music, reading of Scripture, preaching of the gospel, and the celebration of Sacraments (Baptism and the Lord’s Supper). The style is neither traditional or unstructured, drawing from ancient liturgical and contemporary styles. A bulletin provides clear instructions for participation. Our congregation is social and emphasizes welcome. The sanctuary is easy to either sneak in and out of or stay and visit with folks.

 

What will happen when I visit for the first time?

From the parking lot to the Gathering Place, Welcomers are available to answer questions and provide directions. There is time for fellowship before and after the service in the Gathering Place with refreshments and opportunities to visit and learn more about ministry at Camp Hill Presbyterian Church.

 

What should I wear?

At worship, congregants wear a variety of clothing, from business jackets and dresses to shorts and sneakers. Casual dress is not inappropriate or unusual.

 

Do you have activities for my children?

Children are welcome in worship. Before worship at 9am, Christian Education is available through our Kirk Kids program in our Little Kirk. Through the 10:30am worship service, childcare with trained child care workers is available for newborns to 6 year olds. Welcomers are on hand to provide directions to the nursery, sanctuary seating near a designated Children's Corner with table and chairs, or nursing and changing rooms.
