What we're about

No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.

If you have ever been turned away from a church because of who you are...
If you have ever been turned off by worship that does not speak to you or inspire you...
If you have ever wanted to be a part of a community where it's OK to ask hard questions, or have real doubts...
Then you are not alone.

The Charging Station is a Christian community where ALL God's people can celebrate together, ask hard questions together, and discover GOD together.
We don't expect you to check your brain or your identity at the door. In fact, we hope you will feel comfortable to bring your WHOLE self--for that is exactly how God has made you and loves you!

The Charging Station is a weekly, Sunday evening service at Colonial Park United Church of Christ in Lower Paxton Township (Colonial PArk, Harrisburg).

No sermon. Music, friendship, conversation, meditation. LGBTQ-welcoming. This is a new outreach for our church. We meet at 5PM on Sundays, and enjoy some food together afterwards (the main fellowship ends around 6:30).

If you've left the church because the teachings didn't line up with the talk of love, or are just curios or looking for a more progressive place to worship, please come join us!

Taize Prayer and Meditation Service in the chapel

Colonial Park United Church of Christ

Modeled after the traditions of the Taize community in France, this prayer service is characterized by simple sung refrains or verses, scripture reading, lighting of candles and silence meditation. It is a peaceful, personal worship experience for the renewal of the soul. In these times of anxiety, a quiet, contemplative service is helpful to re-focus ourselves on God’s ever present comfort.
