Dr. Abla Hasan

Misunderstood: The Apostle Paul in Three Acts

The Paul of the New Testament pictures a Jesus "for this world and the next," and in this world he has mad skills for building community. 

150 Year Celebration

Our church began on August 19, 1866 when 6 people gathered for the first worship in what was then Lancaster County. What an incredible impact just 6 people had on the very beginnings of our church!

We are celebrating through October 9 with special events and activities including 150 hours of prayer, the Love of Neighbor award, a choir reunion, history feature articles and a carillon concert.

Rev. Dr. Jim Keck

Open Minded

Our worship services have a quality that echoes through the ages and yet, speaks to the present and points to the future. 


We believe God is a spirit of love that can be felt and known by each one of us.


Rather than resisting change or innovation, we eagerly experiment with new ways of being faithful and new understandings


We celebrate the differences among us such as sexual orientation, ethnicity, class, mental abilities, physical capabilities, personalities, and backgrounds.
