The Chambersburg Church of Christ conducts only a traditional service with acapella congregational singing and the Lord’s Supper with individual cups.  We have fellowship meals in our basement.  We provide minimal support to a native missionary in Zambia.  There are no elders due to the lack of eligible volunteers.  We believe that the men have a scriptural responsibility to take a leadership role in conducting services.  Interested parties should contact:  Chambersburg Church of Christ,  P.O. Box 221, Chambersburg, PA 17201 ,  phone: (717) 261-0835 (leave message) or e-mail: cofc@innernet.net. We will request a resume with references and demo sermon from applicants.
