Who We Are

We are a small but mighty church. Through leadership changes and unexpected loss, we have remained resilient. We have a legacy of helpful volunteers, always ready to answer the call when needed.   

Our church recently celebrated its 175th anniversary. It was a great chance to celebrate the many impactful things our church has done throughout the years. Volunteers have taken leadership roles to bring back programs from the past, which were yet again successful.

Weekly prayer meetings have become a mainstay. Bible studies have been inspiring more people to take new steps to become outward in their faith. We have a children’s program on Wednesday nights that has continued for decades.  Lancaster Christian Church cares deeply about kids and spreading the message in that way in our community. LCC has the desire to focus on our youth programs and evangelism, making them the forefront of our ministry.

As our pulpit has remained empty, we have filled it from within at times.  A few brave church members have taken the leap to share what God has placed on their hearts through Scripture.

As we rediscover who we are, we are more and more excited to welcome staff members that can help us take continuous steps toward fulfilling our mission statement as a church, to live, grow, and love by God’s Word.
