Welcome to the Sanctuary Church. We are a Vineyard Church doing church differently in Lancaster, PA. We meet at 3116 Blue Rock Road, Lancaster, PA. We hope you decide to worship with us and we look forward to getting to know you. If you are new to our community, this page will help you know what to expect when you visit us.
We invite you to come as you are, literally. Our dress is casual. When you arrive there will be greeters at the doors. These greeters are there to help new guests find their way around and guide them to the various aspects of our church community. You are welcome to grab some coffee or tea with us as well. Your children are welcome to stay with you during worship and then be signed in by you during the break after worship. Again the greeters can help you navigate that. We also have a very comfortable and private area for nursing mothers.
Our services begin with a song and then a few short announcements and then about 25 to 30 minutes of worship. We are a relaxed community. There are times in which we engage with a live worship band, and there are other times that we worship to MP3’s.
After the worship, we have the sermon message, and this time is usually followed by what we call ministry time. This is a time where we invite the Holy Spirit to touch us and minister to the felt needs of each of our lives. This is usually an exciting time where people encounter God’s transforming love in their personal life. There is no pressure on you as a new guest during this time.
As the prayer time of the service comes to a close it usually leads to people lingering, and chatting with each other in the midst of the presence of the Spirit. This is always a sweet time. Now that you’ve checked us out online, we hope you’ll come check us out in person and see what God is building in Lancaster through Sanctuary and maybe you’ll want to come on this journey with us!
