It was great to see a nice cross section of our members for our first "in-person" service in several months

All in person services had been suspended, but we have now reopened this past week, February 21st.  Please come join us as we worship together in our little church.

New music in the MEDIA section - Don't miss it.



Emanuel Church is off I-83 Exit 10 (Loganville).  Go right at the end of the ramp and then left at the traffic signal.  Emanuel will be on the right side in about a half a mile.  Go right on Cemetery Street (a block before the Church) and then left on Pine to enter our parking lot.  We are handicap accessible should you have someone in a chair or scooter.

WHAT TIME ARE THE SERVICES: Our regular worship service starts at 10:30 AM. Need a ride? Call Lew Elicker (717) 873-0583  or John Elicker  (717) 779-5092

WHAT TO WEAR: That's simple - just be comfortable. You will see jeans & tee shirts as well as a few sports coats. In the summer you might also see shorts and sandals.


Our regular service is more of a traditional church service with hymns, a choir anthem and a sermon. Before the sermon starts we let the youngest kids go to our Social Hall for their own supervised program. This of course, is optional for your youngsters.

COMMUNION:  We generally hold a communion service the first Sunday of each month. We believe any and every Christian is welcome at Christ's table. The ushers distribute a prepackaged sacrament consisting of a piece of bread which symbolize the body of Christ that was given for us, and a small cup of grape juice which represents the blood of Christ that was shed for the forgiveness of our sins. 

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? We have assisted listening devices for those with hearing difficulty. The receiver is about the size of a pack of cigarettes and you can chose from a headset or an ear bud that plugs into the receiver. Just ask the greeter at the back of the church. 

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A CHURCH TO ATTEND? If you just want to come to Church without the joining thing, that works just fine. Simply come any week you want or every week (if you want). If you are considering joining our little church, simply take a visitor's card from the table at the rear of the sanctuary and write a note with your name, address and phone number. Drop the card in the offering plate or hand it to the Minister. The minister will answer your questions about joining Emanuel Church. 


Call Lew Elicker (717) 873-0583 or John Elicker (717) 779-5092

QUESTIONS:  If you have any questions before, during or after you attend one of our services, please speak with or email Pastor Swift at or the webmaster, John Elicker at (717)779-5092

FEEL THE LOVE:  We welcome you to Feel The Love in this little church. Open your heart, accept the many greetings you will receive and let the warmth of a small country church and the love of God envelope you. It's a wonderful feeling.



Due to the fact that our parking lot is on a steep hill, Pennsylvania winters occasionally force us to cancel services .  We feel it is better to cancel than to put our people at risk.  When this happens we will make calls to everyone regarding the closure.  For this reason, it is imperative that we have your current phone number on file. We will also place notice of the cancelation on this web site at the top of the home page.  In bad weather, check this web site BEFORE you go out.
