Love.  It’s the key ingredient. 

 

IN PERSON WORSHIP INFORMATION

We are so excited to welcome you back into the building!  Registration is required for members of Grace Church.  Registration will be open from 9am on Monday until 2pm on Thursday only.  You may register online, at www.graceumlemoyne.org, through our Android app or by calling the church office: 717-763-7632.  Also on our website, we have posted a frequently asked questions about our worship as well as our minimum safety standards.  The council will continually revisit and revise (if necessary) these protocols.  For now, we’re just glad to welcome you back!

 

In addition to our 10am in person service, we will also CONTINUE with parking lot worship, beginning at 8:30am.  That means there are now three opportunities to worship with us: 8:30am in the parking lot, 10:00am in person or 10:00am online on Facebook Live. 

 

THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT! 

If you have an Android phone, you can download our app from the Google Play Store.  On the app, you can submit a prayer request, give online, grab our announcements and check the church calendar.  There’s even a Bible embedded within the app!  Once you get the app, check out a quick tutorial video on how to use it right here.  (Awaiting approval from Apple)

CHURCH CAMP 2021!

Registration is now open for the 2021 camp season!  It will look different than it ever has before but we know that God will be present and we know it will be memorable.  Click here to register online and to read about the COVID-19 safety protocols in place for this season. Remember, Grace Church will offer each camper a $200 campership for their first week of camp!  Also note that the early bird registration deadline is fast approaching!  It is May 1. 

 

CHUM PARTNERSHIP –

  • The Camp Hill and Grace councils have agreed to enter into an informal ministry partnership with each other!!!  PLEASE NOTE:  We have NOT YET DECIDED to take possession of the former Calvary building.  That decision requires a full congregational vote, if one is to be made.   
  • We received the inspection report back on the building at Calvary.  As you would expect, there is PLENTY of work to be done in a 100-year old building.  The church councils are working to get some real bids for work (at no additional cost) to determine what the next faithful steps might be. 
  • We have set up a document that answers many of the Frequently Asked Questions surrounding this potential partnership in ministry.  This document, and plenty of other information is available here.
  • We have also set up an email address  where you can submit your questions.  By sending an email to that address, you’ll be emailing all the pastors involved in the discussions as well as key Camp Hill UMC staff. 
  • Today we also begin a worship series together with our sisters and brothers at Camp Hill entitled “Strangers Become Family”.  We will be exploring the same scriptures together each week and we invite you to a Zoom study on the next three Sunday nights at 6:45.  Register in advance here
