  • Contemporary Worship Ministry | Central Presbyterian Church

    CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP MINISTRY PRAISE BAND We have a small group of musicians committed to using their gifts for serving the Lord! The band plays a variety of Christian music genres including contemporary christian rock, pop, folk, bluegrass, gospel, and more. Occasionally, we worship in spanish in order to celebrate God in representation of our whole neighborhood community! If you are interested in joining the band, contact Erin Adams! Back to Ministries DANCE TEAM Did you know??? The first recorded occurrence of worship dance is in Exodus 15:20 ~ "Then the prophet Miriam, Aaron’s sister, took a tambourine in her hand; and all the women went out after her with tambourines and with dancing." After this, the Bible mentions dance about 20 times! For the dance ministry team at Central, our goal is to celebrate what the Lord has done for us through the art of dancing. We strive to draw ourselves and others closer to God through our movements and by creating meaningful and selfless moments of pure worship and surrender to our Messiah. When you can no longer talk, sing. When you can no longer sing, dance. Dance team meets occasionally when necessary for the service. All are welcome to join us! Back to Ministries TECH TEAM DRAMA TEAM Many plots, many characters, many themes, but one purpose: TO FURTHER GOD'S KINGDOM. The drama team at Central Presbyterian is committed to creating skits, presentations, and experiences that glorify the Lord. We have no interest in making ourselves look good, but instead, we desire to reveal Christ's faithfulness through different scenarios. Some of what we do is comical, some is very intense, but it is always authentic. Drama team meets occasionally when necessary for the service. Back to Ministries God is good in providing committed sound and slideshow technicians who help our contemporary worship service to function!

  • Parking and Directions | Central Presbyterian Church

    PARKING & DIRECTIONS PARKING SUNDAY MORNING GUEST PARKING We have four Guest Parking spots reserved right in front of the church on the Square. They are marked by brown canvas bags placed over the parking meters that read "Reserved Church Visitor." Other parking may be found on the Square in front of the church, and in the public lot behind M&T bank. To get to this lot, go past the church on Lincoln Way West and make your first left on Black Ave (just past the church building) and the parking lot is about 150 feet ahead on your right. ​ Parking meters are free on Sundays. HOW DO I ENTER THE CHURCH BUILDING? ​ If you park on the Square, you can enter the red doors at the front of the church building. The sanctuary, where the 11am service is held, is up the staircases to your right and left. Friendship Hall, where the 9:30am service is held, is straight ahead down the hallway in front of you as you enter the doors. If you need a handicapped accessible entrance, please use one of the two entrances listed below. ​ If you park in the M&T bank lot, you can enter the double doors at the back of the church that you will see as you walk from the parking lot towards the church building. When you enter, Friendship Hall will be on your left just past the kitchen. If you're heading to the Sanctuary, continue down the hallway to the Lobby and take the elevator to the 2nd floor. This entrance is handicapped accessible. ​ There is also an entrance to the church lobby through the glass doors on Lincoln Way West. Friendship Hall will be ahead on your right, and the elevator to the Sanctuary will also be on your right. This entrance is also handicapped accessible. ​ If this sounds confusing, don't worry, there are friendly, trained greeters who will help you find your way. DIRECTIONS Our address is 40 LINCOLN WAY WEST CHAMBERSBURG, PA 17201 Chambersburg is located at the intersection of routes 30 and 11 in south-central Pennsylvania. We're about halfway between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh off of PA-81. If you are traveling via I-81, take exit 16. From 81-South, take the exit-16 ramp and turn left onto route 30. ​ From 81-North, take the exit-16 ramp and turn right at the light onto route 30. ​ Once you're on route 30, continue straight for about 1.6 miles. Once you hit the "square", you'll see the church - it's the one with the gigantic copper steeple. ​ For directions from elsewhere, we recommend you use your GPS or Google Maps below - there are one-way streets downtown and it 's hard to put the directions into words Go Back CPC Home Discipleship Donate Connection Page Sermons & Newletters Ministries Search our Site More

  • Our History, Our Story | Central Presbyterian Church

    CPC Home Discipleship Donate Connection Page Sermons & Newletters Ministries Search our Site More OUR STORY Central Presbyterian Church was established by the Presbytery of Carlisle in August of 1868 with 28 charter members. The church was built on a lot donated by one of these members, Colonel James C. Austin. Miss Sarah Wilson, one of the founders of Wilson College, was one of the significant donors of Central's 186 foot tower. When other women in the town gave her grief for donating to this "phallic symbol", Miss Wilson replied that if God wanted it to come down then it would, if He didn’t then it would stand. In September 1871 the building was dedicated. ​ The church departed radically from the practice of the times, resolving to support its work by voluntary offerings” rather than pew rent. ​ After a disastrous fire in 1938 the original building was restored and larger facilities for the church school were added. Later the exterior walls got a face lift when the outside was encased in colonial brick. Another building program was completed in 1968 and a major expansion and renovation was completed in 2002. ​The Sanctuary Organ ​Another casualty of the 1938 fire was the original pipe organ. The present instrument was built for this sanctuary by Casavant Freres, Ltd., Quebec, Canada and dedicated in February 1940. It has three manuals and 2,000 pipes located in two chambers on each side of the chancel. The organ was recently renovated and updated with electronic components to provide this unique instrument with many more years of service. ​ Tiffany Windows ​In 1905 the Tiffany window in the Sanctuary were dedicated. Then in October 1938, Central Presbyterian Church was struck by a fire which destroyed the roof which in turn crashed into the sanctuary destroying the organ, pews, chancel and in part, the windows. Two windows were completely destroyed and the rest required varying degrees of repair. And there they remain today, repaired, restored and protected so that generations to come may enjoy them. ​ ​ ​ Go Back
