What We Do

Riverboat Worship Services

Most Sundays over the summer you can worship with us on the Pride of the Susquehanna Riverboat, leaving at 10am from City Island in Harrisburg. Worship is typically led by a different local pastor, church or group each week. The cruise starts at 10:00am and lasts about an hour. There is no cost to board but seating is limited. 

Freewill Offering: A freewill offering will be taken as you depart the boat. The offering is divided evenly between the Harrisburg Area Riverboat Society (to support riverboat operations) and Christian Churches United (to support the work of HELP Ministries). HELP Ministries provides emergency assistance to individuals and families in crisis, including: access to emergency shelter, rental assistance to prevent or end homelessness, utility assistance, and other emergency help, case management and referrals.
