8:45 AM

Traditional Celebration of Worship*


This service is designed for those people who appreciate the familiar, conventional corporate worship experience.

It is the more traditional of the two services offered at Lampeter Church of the Brethren. The service starts with an organ prelude followed by sharing of prayer concerns, praises, and announcements. Hymnals are provided for congregational singing of hymns, both familiar and unfamiliar. The message is regularly given by Pastor Christopher Shelly and other qualified ministry staff members.


11:10 AM

Contemporary Celebration of Worship*


This service is designed for those people who appreciate an informal service filled with praise songs and modern accompaniment. It is the more contemporary of the two services offered at Lampeter Church of the Brethren. The sounds of acoustic, electric and bass guitars, drums, keyboard, piano, and various other instruments provide the music. The message is regularly given by Pastor Christopher Shelly or other qualified ministry staff members.
