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 and those who are feeling lonely and isolated at this time.
In light of Cumberland County moving to the green phase, our re-entry plan is to begin in-person worship on Sunday, July 19th. We will offer one service in both the Sanctuary (Celebration) and Worship Center (New Life) at 9:30 am. Worship will continue to be live-streamed on the Camp Hill UMC YouTube Channel: youtube.com/c/camphillumc. You can find a link to the livestream from our church homepage and Facebook Page. The service is recorded and can be viewed at a later date. In keeping with CDC guidelines and as a covenant of respect for others, we will adhere to necessary in-person worship guidelines.
Pre-registration is required each week for the service you would like to attend. We estimate a maximum attendance of 75 persons in the Celebration service and 90 persons in the New Life service. You may register your “family unit,” which can range from one person to many, depending on your family’s size, online at camphillumc.churchcenter.com/registrations, or call the church office at 717-737-5631. You may not register by leaving a message. Deadline to sign up via telephone is noon the Friday prior to worship. Deadline to sign up online is midnight the Saturday prior to worship.

A big thank you for all who sent birthday cards to me! What a nice surprise! You made my day special! Mabel Jackson (Camp Hill UMC Homebound Member)
Join us this summer as we read the book White Fragility by Robin Diangelo. As you read, take notes, pray about it, talk about it in your home, and with those in your circle. At the end of the summer, we will create a space for the congregation to talk about the book as a platform to talk openly and as a community of faith about racism. Jesus calls us not to turn away from the challenging issues but to join together and work towards a more just world.
Everyone is going through a challenging time. Each of us brings to the table different situations and needs. Singles for Jesus is a way to have singles feel like they have a family via the group. On July 14th, There will be a gathering in Jim Massey’s backyard at 7 pm. You can stay socially distant but yet have fellowship and get to know people better. Pizza and drinks will be provided. Please come with ideas for the group to do as activities, service projects, possible studies, and an open mind to make the group a part of your regular routine. Contact Jim Massey if you’re interested in attending and for his address at firstname.lastname@example.org or 717-979-4580.
The Unified Leadership Council will meet next on July 21st at 6:30 pm online. These meetings are open to all members and friends of the church.

We have outgrown our current APP! We are hoping to implement a new mobile app by the fall. You can find all the information that lived on the app on our mobile-friendly website, camphillumc.org, including the weekly prayer list, weekly news, giving, etc. If you have any questions or concerns, contact Leslie Petersheim at firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to delete the current mobile app!
The Panguma Scholarship Campaign is an opportunity to support the education of a child or teen in Sierra Leone, where the 2018 literacy rate was under 49%. When you invest in education where poverty is abundant, knowledge is one of the only things that does not waste away. Campaign details coming soon!
In John 15:15-16, Jesus says, “I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.”
Talking with God develops a deeper relationship with Him. The deeper the relationship becomes, the more time you want to spend with Him. When you feel like your world is spinning out of control, when storms hit, when you’re taken over by worry, when sickness and fatigue strike, let prayer be your stability, calm, and tranquility. You’ll find rest and recovery in Christ.
The church leadership has listed ideas for prayer for you to consider each day. Prayers will be listed on camphillumc.org/prayertime and daily on our Facebook and Instagram pages. Feel free to add additional prayers that come to your mind and heart for people and situations in our local church, The United Methodist Church, the global church, and the wider world.
