Frequenty Asked Questions
What are the worship services like?
During the school year, we offer two styles of worship services. Our 8:30am service follows a traditional format with music led by the organ and choir, and generally lasts 1 hour. At our 11:00am service you can expect a more contemporary feel with music led by our Worship Team, and this service generally lasts 1 hour and 15 minutes.
During the summer months we hold one service each Sunday at 9:30am. The style of this service changes from week to week. Some weeks are traditional and other weeks are more contemporary.
We also have various special worship services in June that incorporate both styles of worship.
When we have more than one worship service on a Sunday, the same message is preached at all services.
When is communion served?
Communion is served on the first Sunday of the month and special services throughout the year.
Where do my children go during worship services?
Childcare is available during all services for children up to Kindergarten age. During the 11am service, 1st through 3rd grade children attend worship service with their parents then leave mid-way, before the sermon, for classroom Bible teaching. Youth 4th grade and up remain for the entire worship service.
Is there a Sunday School?
Yes! Sunday School is available for all ages, infant through adult from 9:45am to 10:45am. Adult classes are also offered simultaneously for parents who would like to stay and learn. Adult classroom studies vary throughout the year. School age children are taught by caring adults using curriculum from Great Commission Publications. Generally there are two grade-levels per class. Classroom locations are posted near the main entrances or talk to one of our friendly greeters for directions. Sunday School runs during the school year, beginning after Labor Day and ending in early June.
Where do I park?
We have three on campus parking areas. We recommend parking in the lot behind the church off of Lake Avenue near the main entrance. There is also parking at our Potter’s House across Lake Avenue, and in the front of the church off of Broadway (Route 20). Handicap/Elderly parking is available in both the Broadway and Lake Avenue parking lots in the designated areas. There is additional street parking on west side of Lake Avenue between stated signage.
See our Location for more details.
What should I wear?
We want you to feel comfortable. You will find people here in casual attire and others in their “Sunday best”, with everything in between.
Why do I hear people use "LPC" and "EPC"?
Sometimes Lancaster Presbyterian Church is abreviated as LPC. We are also a part of a global movement of Evangelical Presyterian Churches, commonly refered to as EPC.
What is "Session"?
Session is a body of elected elders, responsible for the governance and spiritual oversight of our church. Active members of Session are called Ruling Elders.
