Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!

Pearl Street United Methodist Church has served the community of the western edge of Lancaster City for over 100 years. The children’s Sunday school rooms have been converted into a thriving school uniform bank. The adult Sunday school meets faithfully every Sunday before worship.

Three churches are using our sacred space to meet the changing needs of the neighborhood forming a community of faith.

Of course it is called Pearl Street because of the name of the street where the church rests. Yet Pearl is so appropriate for this church. Jesus gave us a parable of the kingdom being compared to a pearl of great price. (See Matthew 13:45-46) Many faithful Christians have made sacrifices because this church is a great find. We invite you to join us for Christ’s pearls of wisdom in this beautiful setting.


Pastor Jonette



We have four empty filing cabinets for anyone who wants to pick them up.  Please call the church office
to make arrangements for pickup.  717-393-8892.



Pearl Street UMC is over 100 years old.  Along with age comes the necessity of costly repairs.

Our Bell Tower is in need of those repairs.  To help pay for this expense we have created a Building Fund.

If anyone would like to contribute to the Building Fund, it would be greatly appreciated.

Checks can be made out to Pearl St. UMC and on the note line write Building Fund.

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
You found our website and now I invite you to our neighborhood church on the western edge of Lancaster City.  We have been located at the corner of Pearl and Second Street for over 100 years.  Our ministry continues on in the neighborhood and beyond.
"Pearl Street Live" the last Sunday worship of the month and the School Uniform Bank for schools in Lancaster City are a few of our ministries that you might want to check out.
I lived most of my life in Lancaster City.  Pearl Street Church was my home church since about 1978.  My call to ordained ministry came through this church and then I served as the pastor from 1998-2002.  In July of 2011, I was appointed again as pastor here.  It is like coming home again!
I invite you to come and see!  Pearl Street Church is full of opportunity for you to find a place to belong and a place to serve the Lord you love.
In Christ's love,
Pastor Debbie
