welcome back

The leadership team at Camp Hill UMC has made the difficult decision to postpone our plan to regather for in-person worship this Sunday, July 19th.

Camp Hill UMC, you are loved.

At Camp Hill UMC, we take the physical health and spiritual well-being of our congregation, staff, and community very seriously. Please continue to pray for those who are affected by this virus—those who are ill, the medical professionals treating them, the scientists working on vaccines and cures, those with mental health concerns, and the leaders making tough decisions to try and curb the spread of the virus and keep us safe. We also pray for those who are feeling lonely and isolated at this time.


If you have been unable to connect via online worship, please call the church office at 717-737-5631, so that we might be of help to you to keep you informed.

In-Person Worship Update

Governor Wolf re-instituted the 25 person limit on indoor gatherings for the Commonwealth. The leadership team at Camp Hill UMC has made the difficult decision to postpone our plan to regather for in-person worship this Sunday, July 19th. Instead, please join us for worship this Sunday online at 9:30 am, as we offer a modified worship experience via live stream only. You can find a link to our live stream on our home page at camphillumc.org or on our YouTube channel, youtube.com/c/camphillumc.
