A United Methodist Community

Where Faith Meets Life


DRESS ::  Like the loving God we serve, we invite you to come just as you are.  Some people prefer to dress in their "Sunday best", while others are more comfortable in casual clothing.  On any given Sunday you will find people dressed in anything from suit and tie to their favorite jeans.

PARKING ::  Charlton Church is surrounded by two parking lots, one off South Mountain Road and one off Jonestown Road.  The two lots are connected to one another at the northwest corner of our facility.  Overflow parking is available in the daycare lot across from the church on South Mountain Road.

WELCOME DESK :: If you would like more information about Charlton Church, please see one of our greeters in the main lobby.  There are church brochures at the Info Desk, where we would like you to sign in as a guest.  Be sure to let us know that you are visiting, so that we can be sure to greet you and answer any questions you may have.

NEW MEMBERS CLASS ::  Our pastor leads a new members class two or three times a year.  This class covers an overview of our church's ministry and beliefs, as well as information about our denomination.  If you would like to be a part of our next class, please contact Pastor Les by calling him at 717-545-2000 or emailing pastorles@charltonchurch.org.  

Whether you've come through our front doors or through the window of your computer, welcome to Charlton Church!

Like you, we are a people on life's journey seeking and searching ... for meaning, for truth, for strength, for hope.  At Charlton, we believe we can find what our hearts are looking for in God's love as shown in Jesus Christ.  We invite you to join our church family as we strive to make disciples for Jesus Christ through worship, witness, service, study and fellowship.

Here are a few facts about Charlton Church that you may be interested in:

WORSHIP :: Charlton Church has two Sunday morning services in our sanctuary at 8:30 AM and 11:00 AM. During the summer months of June, July and August, we have one service at 9:30 AM. We prefer not to use terms such as 'traditional' or 'contemporary'.  At Charlton, we strive to provide worship experiences that are uplifting and inspirational, and reflect a variety of Christian traditions.  Our music is chosen based on the theme of the day, incorporating cherished hymns of the past as well as newer songs of praise.

CHILDCARE :: Nursery care is provided on Sunday mornings during the worship and Sunday School hours for infants and toddlers.  Charlton is a Safe Sanctuary, which means our congregation is committed to the care of our children and has policies in place to reduce the risk of child abuse.
