You can typically find places to park along 18th Street and State Street in front of the church. You are welcome to drop passengers off in front of the church when parking down the street. Also, if you should need a hand finding a spot, stop at the corner of 18th and State we know where all the good spots are, just ask, “hey, where can I find a place to park”.
If you plan your visit with us, we’ll reach out and talk with you about parking. If you keep it a secret – we’ll hold you a spot, check out this page to learn more and Plan Your Visit To Transcend Church Harrisburg.
Sundays at Transcend Church
People typically start to show up at Transcend Church 15-30 minutes before the 10:45 am service starts. We do this because Sunday mornings aren’t just a time to sit and listen. We enjoy the time we have before and after the service to catch up with friends, meet someone new, and talk about what’s happening in our lives.
You can park along 18th st—as-well-as on State Street. We have people standing outside at the Corner of 18th and State to greet you, give you a bulletin, and bring you inside to orient you to the building – just let us know “it’s my first time here,” but we may figure it out on our own too.
Our services tend to follow a familiar flow, week-by-week. We start our service with a time of worshipful music, hymns played with guitar and piano, and congregationally accessible singing. We have a few minutes of announcements and news from around the church including prayer requests and opportunities for service, read the day’s scripture, followed by a few moments of saying hi to the people around us.
We spend the majority of the service, learning from the Bible; both what it meant to the people when it was written and what it means for us now.
We typically close our services with another time of praising God through singing before being challenged to go and live differently because of what God has taught us and in His word and to continue our time of learning and transformation through personal study and prayer.
Sometimes We Change It Up
On the first Sunday of each month we practice communion as a way to remember how Jesus bought our salvation. Visitors are welcome to participate but we do practice a ‘careful communion’ which is described at each service.
On the 3rd Sunday of each month, we have lunch together. Immediately following the service, we head downstairs into the fellowship hall to spend time together, meet new people, and enjoy some food. Everyone is welcome!
