Kingdom Kid’s Club
Children are an integral part of our congregation at Chambersburg Alliance. We believe that investment in today’s youth is vital in fostering men and women of strong faith in Jesus Christ. For that reason we offer our midweek children’s program. It is an opportunity for children ages three to sixth grade to engage in creative crafts, games, and most importantly learn about Jesus.
Alliance Youth Fellowship (AYF)
Our youth define our church! They bring energy and a creative flair to congregation family and worship. They meet twice a week, Sunday evenings at 6 PM and Wednesday evenings at 7 PM. Each gathering involves a fun light-hearted atmosphere with pointed discussion about the Christian faith and it’s applications to life. Additionally, the AYF holds monthly activities that help foster life-long friendships. Past activities have involved movie nights, lock-ins, cookie decorating, pool parties, bowling, and sled derbies!
One aspect that makes AYF unique is our church affiliation with the Christian & Missionary Alliance. Every three years Alliance Youth from across the nation gather together for a youth conference called LIFE. It is perhaps the highlight experience of every teenager while in AYF! National speakers, unforgettable worship sessions, games, activities, and an opportunity to serve the hosting city’s community. LIFE has it all! Check out what our youth are up to now on the AYF Facebook Page.
One of the ways we seek to engage with the community is though our monthly food pantry. Every third Satuday from 10:30 to noon our church creates a cordial atmosphere where people can come to receive everyday groceries. Life often brings unexpected challenges and difficulty. Our pantry exists to offer a friendly, lending hand that mitigates the impact of life’s tragedies and difficulties.
Cold Weather Shelter
During the cold, frigid winters our church offers assistance at out local Cold Weather Shelter. Every Friday night for 3-4 month, we are able to provide a meal for those that attend the shelter that evening. Additionally, we have a few men from the church that help work the shelter during the evenings and some even stay overnight. It offers another great opportunity to connect with our local community.
Grain of Hope
At Chambersburg Alliance we not only want to be involved in our community, but we also pursue projects that promote a better wellbeing for people around the world. Grain of Hope sprouted from a “crazy, passionate” youth group near Lancaster, PA. Their uncontainable zeal for the greater global community has influenced our congregation to hold an annual fundraiser. The money we raise supports various projects that Grain of Hope has initiated and to ultimately share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Learn more about how Chambersburg Alliance and Grain of Hope are seeking to break the cycle of poverty in Burkina Faso.
Alliance Men and Women
Every third Sunday of the month, our evening service consists of Alliance Men and Women gatherings. These groups are based on building stronger relationships within our church family. It’s an opportunity for women to gather with women and men with men. Each groups seeks to boldly live out their Christian Faith and to know God more intimately through bible study and fellowship.
