What to Expect
We welcome you to Church of the Apostles United Church of Christ in Lancaster, Pa. To learn more about what you can expect when visiting us, please click on a question below.
When are your services, and what are they like?
Between our services, we host a fellowship time with refreshments outside the sanctuary, where everyone gathers to visit with one another over snacks and drinks. Our 10:45 service features more traditional hymns and approaches to worship.
Who are you, and what do you believe?
We believe in welcoming everyone regardless of who they are, or where they are on their own individual faith journey. While we may differ in our worship preferences, our congregation affirms Jesus Christ as Savior and as the sole head of our church. United under Christ, we maintain that all believers are equal in God’s eyes, and we therefore work for a just and loving world where all of God’s children live as equals. Above all, we believe that God is still speaking to us today, and that we are called to listen for God’s still-speaking voice.
What about kids? Do you have childcare or Sunday school?
In addition, we offer Sunday school classes for children age three through grade six during the 9:15 service. Children at this service usually begin worship with their families, and then leave for Sunday school after the children’s sermon.
What should I wear?
Where do I go, and where do I park?
If you have little ones with you, and would prefer to leave them in our caregivers’ capable hands while you worship, you will find the nursery down the hallway to your left; it’s the second room on the left. The church office and restrooms are down the hall on your right. We encourage you to check out the information at the Welcome Center just inside the door, or enjoy a cup of coffee before entering the sanctuary.
