Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! Alleluia!


Worship Volunteers Needed

As we begin the journey back to a “normal” worship schedule, we need volunteers to: read the lessons, assist Pastor with communion, set up and clean up communion, sound and camera operators, ushers, and greeters. Have helped in the past— or would like to?  All are welcome! Please call the office at 717-397-2748 to volunteer!

Fountain Flowers

Opportunities to share plants and flowers for the fountain will be available beginning Sunday, April 24th and continuing through June 5th. Families may buy plants and flowers to decorate the Fountain on the Sunday they choose, delivering them to church on Saturday and following Sunday services, take their plants home. Please call the church office @ 397-2748 with questions or to sign up.

Lancaster Chamber Singers

For spring, Lancaster Chamber Singers are going to record several pieces to post on their YouTube channel – and you’re invited to the recording session! While it won’t be a full-length concert, you will get to watch and listen as we record both audio and video of six pieces.

The recording session will take place on Tuesday, May 10, at 7 PM at Grace Lutheran Church, 517 N. Queen St. (corner of N. Queen & E. James) in Lancaster.
There will be no admission charge, but you must show proof of full vaccination to enter. We hope to see all of our friends! Please share this post to help spread the word!

Creation Care

This Week’s Green Tip

Sprawling crops like squashes, cucumbers and melons can be trained to grow up a fence or support, saving you valuable garden real estate that can go to additional crops. Poles and tree branches can be made into bean and cucumber ‘teepees’, freeing up space for other plants. Read more here
