  • Pillar

    Currently Suspended: 

    Welcome to "Pillar Campus Ministries." College is a time where change is occurring and direction is necessary to maintain a relationship with Jesus. The name "Pillar" stems from understanding our need to be guided through the ups and downs of college life. Exodus 13:21 says "By day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night." No matter what, the Lord will guide you, and it is my hope that you can find that guidance through the ministries and the people in our church community. In doing so, we hope you will develop pillars on which to build the rest of your life upon. 

    You will notice below in the link to our ministry "Operation Richard Street". Our church supports this event on Thursday nights during the college semesters.

    Please check out the link below for more information on that ministry, as well as the College Activity Calendar.

  • Operation Richard Street

    Currently Suspended: 

    What is Operation Richard St.? 

    ORS is a wonderful opportunity to engage the typical party culture with a refreshing taste of God's grace and love. That taste happens to be through grilled hot dogs and free van rides around Shippensburg. 

    Through ORS, every Thursday night college students gather at the corner of Richard and Queen Streets to grill hot dogs, engage in conversations, walk people to their homes, and we offer van rides as well so students do not have to fear being taken advantage of on their walks home. 

    We can always use more people helping out with this ministry. Contact: If you would like to participate.

    This event runs from mid-August through April when college is in session and the weather cooperates with grilling outdoors.

  • Sunday School: Faith and Vocation

    Currently suspended - Every Sunday at 9:45 am, we meet on the second floor of the church in room 205. Right now we are discussing who the Holy Spirit is and what is our role, as the people of God, to work with the Holy Spirit in order that we can bring the Kingdom to earth.
