Who We Are


Welcome to Shepherdstown United Methodist Church! We’re so glad that you found us online.

Whether you’ve recently moved to Central PA or you’re looking for a new faith community in the Mechanicsburg area, we want to be your church family.

Many of us are members of the same Mechanicsburg community, so we often run into each other at the nearby Giant Food Stores, at our kids’ and grandkids’ baseball games at nearby Parks, or at events hosted by the Mechanicsburg School District. 

We think you will find Shepherdstown Church welcoming and friendly during your visit. You will find a welcome center within our main lobby. 

Why Visit Shepherdstown Church?

At Shepherdstown Church, you can find people from all different backgrounds, of all different ages, worshiping together. We are committed to living out our love for God and others, Growing together in our Faith and Serving our community and world. We have a strong belief in service to others, demonstrated by our many outreach programs. We seek to be a church that is making a refreshing difference in the community. In a broken and divided world, we aim to be the embodiment of God's healing presence to our neighbors.

What to expect at our Church Services?

Our worship services are at 8:15 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. on Sundays. Each week we seek to engage people in worship that is Christ centered, biblically based and culturally relevant. We seek to engage people's thoughts and experiences in considering what it means to be disciples of Jesus Christ.

Do you have children? They are welcome to join us in worship or at 10:30 a.m. attend Flock (to which children 3yrs.- 5th grade are dismissed after a brief time in worship) or play in the nursery while you attend the service. We also offer special learning opportunities for children, youth, and adults on Sunday mornings. There is something for everyone at Shepherdstown Church.
