August 2018 EMBRACE Highlight

AUGUST 1, 2018


When you give to Camp Hill UMC’s one-fund, you are embracing God’s vision of making disciples for the transformation of the world!

How, you ask?

Over the last year, because of your faithful giving through the Embrace Initiative, the role of the Mission and Outreach director was expanded to include the new work of Fresh Expressions. A Fresh Expression is a form of church for our changing culture established primarily for the benefit of people who are not yet members of any church. Our goal is to clearly proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ in new ways, with new people and sometimes in new places. 

Refresh, pioneered by Don Van Fleet, is currently meeting once a month at Ever Grain Brewery and is building community in a Christ-centered way with 8-12 people.

Yoga Chapel, pioneered by Kristin Mooney and Pastor Anna Layman Knox, is a Christian worship experience incorporating full body, mind and soul. Yoga Chapel meets regularly on Thursdays, currently on church property and serves a group of close to 20 women, men and children.

At Ease Chapel, pioneered by Mike and Shirley Zink, Brad Bower and Rev Doug Compton, have left the DAV building and are praying about new opportunities to serve veterans with Just for Today: Recovery and Veteran Support Services, located in Lemoyne. 

Laurel Towers, pioneered by Fred Clark, is a longstanding weekly bible study that gathers on Thursday afternoons for study and prayer. Serving 8-12 people.

If you would like to get involved or learn more about the work of Fresh Expressions, please contact Drew Robeson, or 717-919-8303.

Thank you!

Because of your faithful giving, these funds have been available at the time when they have been needed to equip our staff and lay people for a new season of ministry. Praise God!
