WHAT IS WORSHIP LIKE?

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.

Location

We are located at 1934 South York Street, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

There is no dress code at our church. Depending on the season you will find sweaters and blue jeans, shorts and T-shirts, shirts and ties, pants and blazers, skirts and blouses, or “Sunday Best” attire with even a hat or two. Whatever you wear, you will find enough people dressed as you are to feel comfortable. Ladies might want to bring a light sweater to wear if needed. Children particularly should wear comfortable clothes. Our congregation is more casual in dress than traditional Christian churches.

WHERE DO I PARK AND ENTER THE BUILDING?

We have three parking lots all within a short walk of the Church entrances.

SUMC Parking Layout

Handicap Parking:

Shepherdstown has two entries of handicap parking. The first section is beside the main entrance doors. A ramp is provided with double door openings. The second entry point is through the Church Fellowship Hall located off the lower parking lot which has an elevator to the entire second floor.

WHERE WILL MY KIDS GO?

Let the fun begin! Each week kids will be involved in fun, active and creative Bible learning activities, interactive discussions, music and drama. They will “experience” the Bible and learn how to apply its principles to their lives. Caring and gifted teachers will be ready to meet your child at 9:30 AM each Sunday. Stop by the “Check In” table in the Children’s Center for help in finding your child’s classroom. Come join us!! We have classes for all ages. We are excited about sharing this time with kids, and know it will be a blessing for your family!

Parents…Why bring your child to LifeTime??

We also offer Children’s Church during 10:45 worship.

Kids need to praise and worship God just as adults do. In Children’s Church we reflect on the character and deeds of a good God and worship Him through praise, music, scripture, activities and prayer. Children will enjoy age appropriate activities in a fun and caring atmosphere.

Little Lambs Nursery is available for newborns through age 2 or till potty-trained. Children can be dropped off prior to or any morning service. Pagers are provided.

Preschool Children's Church for age 3-kindergarten meet each Sunday throughout the year. Children are dismissed to go downstairs following the Children's sermon.

Elementary Children's Church for Kindergarten – 5th grade meet each week from September - May except for Family Sunday. Children are dismissed to go downstairs following the Children's sermon. Sunday is the last Sunday of each month when the children sit with their families in worship to become acclimated to the regular church service. Children's church for elementary is not offered from June-August. Activity bags are available for children during worship services.
