Every month we ask our members to support our commitment to SPO (Shippensburg Produce Outreach), our local food panty, with a donation of $75.00 per month or a total of $900 per year. This month allows our community to provide fresh eggs to our clients. This is an important reach out into our community that we have been participating in for many years. We are grateful to be a part of making it better for the people who are our…
We’re calling it “Coffee Hour for Kids” and it will be a weekly gathering of our young people, to include all ages, as they pray together, study scripture, engage in a spiritual practice, sing their hearts out, learn about the Way of Love, create with craft, know more about the Episcopal Church and engage in outreach activities. It’s every week and it will be creative and fun, while our young people learn and grow in their faith. Always from 11:15…
A quiet spoken service with Holy Eucharist.
Weekly Sunday School for children from 2-6 years old.
This is the service of the Great Thanksgiving when we give thanks and praise to the living God in our lives.
Join us each week for a time of learning, fun, and music, which draws it all together!
Our young people will learn about our holy scriptures and then how they impact and inform their lives. This will be a life-changing experience for them, for we expect they will find Christ in their midst.
We love it when the community gathers to just be together: to catch up on the past week, to share our joys and concerns, to grow together in Christ and to feel what it means to be a part of the living and moving Body of Christ. Each week parishioners provide delicious and healthy foods to share. Please always feel welcome to come and be a part of our community.
Each week people gather to create a quilt which is raffled off at the end of the year to raise money for the residents of The Episcopal Home. The members of this ministry also make other creative projects they sell at their annual Pumpkin Patch. No quilting experience needed, just an enjoyment of the company of others!
Join us for a time of reading scripture, praying, and silence as we usher in the new day, turning our hearts toward God.
The backbone of worship in the Episcopal Church is the Daily Office, a collection of prayers offered throughout the day, beginning with Morning Prayer, a quiet, sacred service that can be done individually (for there is always someone else praying with you) or together in a group. Please join us for time of reading scripture and offering prayers.
We gather mid-week to receive healing prayers and to celebrate the Holy Eucharist together. This is a lovely time of reading scripture, asking for God’s healing grace to be within our own heart, mind, body, and soul or for those who are on our heart. There’s an intimacy of communion when the group gathered is small and knows each other well. All are welcome to attend. It’s a wonderful way to intentionally connect with God’s grace part way through the…
This is a time to learn more about you and your relationship with God among friends. All are welcome to join us anytime!
Join with others to find that still and quiet voice of God.
A service of silence, song, and contemplation.
At each Vestry meeting, one of our vestry members reflects upon and leads us in a spiritual practice in The Way of Love. This begins our meeting grounded in God and forms us deeper as a community. Our meetings always include approval of minutes, review of our financial position, and then will focus on one particular ministry, so we can learn about it in depth. We come together in desire to form the people of our parish faithfully through our…
Join us as we gather at St. Thomas in Lancaster to learn more about How2charist — an interactive instructional Eucharist that will draw us deeper into the mystery of this sacrament and explain why we do what we do. This is part of our engagement with The Way of Love, an initiative of the Episcopal Church helping us to develop our spiritual lives. Let’s do this together as a family parish. All are welcome!
Join others as we prepare our young people for Confirmation.
This is the day we celebrate St. Francis, who, in addition to his love of animals, is known for his vow of poverty and walking with those who “have not”. He was a leader in the efforts we continue today with the care of creation and social justice action. Special prayers and focus on working together to help others.
Come and be healed by the grace of God.
You are invited to attend this workshop that empowers our church to remain safe for all people, but especially those who are most vulnerable — our children.
