Greetings Encounter Church family!
By now you've likely heard the good news....we'll begin to regather for Sunday Worship inside the church building on Sunday, July 5. We're so excited that the time has almost come and we can't wait to worship with you in person again!
The recent survey that so many of you completed let us know that the majority of you are comfortable meeting inside the church building again with some sensible safety measures in place. Thank you so much for completing the survey and for the thoughtful comments that you shared with us. We took all of that information seriously and have done our best to address all concerns.
Our goal is to have Sunday morning feel as normal as possible while implementing a few best practices in terms of safety because we care for you and for those you interact with throughout your week. To that end, and to answer some of your questions, we've created the Regathering Safely document. Please take a look and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the church office
at [email protected] or 717-838-3443.
We understand that for some of you it is just too soon and we respect that
completely. To that end, we'll continue to offer online worship and hope that you'll join us at 9:00am or 10:45am as the livestream of Encounter Worship takes place on YouTube. We'll look forward to the time when all of this is far enough in the distance that you feel comfortable attending in person once again.
Please keep our regathering in prayer as this is entirely new territory for all of us. Please also remember to respect one another in terms of interaction preferences. We have no doubt that you are up to that challenge!!
Have a wonderful week and we hope to see you on Sunday, July 5!
Welcome to Encounter Online!
Welcome to the online Encounter Church Sunday experience! While we cannot gather together in a physical sense, we can still gather together as the Church body. We hope that you will join us over the next few weeks from the comfort of your own home on Sunday mornings at 10 am for a weekly video service, which will similarly present the services you are accustomed to attending in person.

Prophecy Sermon Series

Kidz Konnection Parents: Welcome to another week of HOME CHURCH! We hope you are enjoying the opportunity to learn with your kids and get a little taste of what we do each week in Kidz Konnection while you're in "big church." Below are several resources for you to use on Sunday morning...or anytime! New this week are Extra Activities pages to use at home. We will also be providing physical packets of these materials at the church building. They will be in bins outside, under the canopy and available beginning Friday morning. You can stop by and pick up whatever you need! Please don't hesitate to reach out to us with questions, comments, prayer requests or even help with anything that comes up. We are thinking of you and praying for you!
