City Church


Senior Leaders Mark and Abby King founded LHOP in

1979 with the vision of "one church in many locations."

Today, we exist as many church bodies meeting at

different sites throughout Lancaster County and beyond,

sharing the good news of the Kingdom.

Pastor Matthew Kroll and his wife, Joanne, have been

leaders in the City Church since 1994, working with

children, youth, young adults, and families.

LHOP's Mission is to establish, equip, and encourage

everyone to achieve all that God has called them to. Our

various ministries work together to accomplish this goal.

Our worship ministry exists to glorify God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit through music, dance, flags, prophetic inspiration, and the Word and to see Him enthroned on our praises. Our purpose is to worship God and encourage spiritual growth in the body as we experience His manifest presence.

If you want to get involved with worship at LHOP City email and articulate your desire. A Worship Leader will contact you soon. Your gifts will make room for themselves; you are an important part of the body of Christ.
