Who We Are

We are a small congregation located in the beautiful Mahantongo Valley. We are a rooted church, rooted in Jesus, our savior; rooted in God’s Word, revealed in the Bible, and rooted in our community.

Cross Our History

The Hepler’s Church of God has been around for a long time. We have a rich history of serving our community, with roots dating back to 1847, when the church first began meeting in the homes of local Christians in the Mahantongo Valley to worship God and read His Word. Over the past 170+ years, a lot has changed about Hepler’s, but we still remain committed to meeting together to study and share God’s word.

One of the first things you will notice about our congregation is that we are no mega-church. Typically, we have around 45-50 people who worship with us on a given Sunday Morning. We are like a family here at Hepler’s. We are a multi-generational church. It is our belief that people of all ages are a part of Christ’s Church. From the newborn baby to the oldest person, we believe all play a crucial and active part of the church. As such, in our worship services, you will see people of all ages worshipping God; grandparents worshiping with grandchildren, and everyone in between. The Hepler’s Church is a kid-friendly place and there are lots of opportunities for your kids to grow in their relationship with Jesus as well as opportunities for adults to grow in their relationship with Jesus too!
