We know it's a long distance for some folks, especially Donna's friends, family and colleagues from beyond Pennsylvania. We and Donna cordially invite you to consider the options below to ease the distance, and to share our city, and our very unique church, with our suburban and urban locations, both with beautiful buildings and wonderful ministries.
Out of Town guests are encouraged to stay over Sunday night with a special rate the Uintarian Church of Harrisburg at the Sleep Inn, on Eisenhower Blvd., right next door to the Clover Ln. campus. Or choose from a variety of hotels close to Clover Ln. Some home hospitality will be available for those for whom a hotel cost prevents being able to come. Please request this soon.
Young adults may stay over in the Clover Ln. building 'con style', sleeping on the floor with sleeping bags, with prior notice.
