Hello! Welcome to the website of Hosanna! A Fellowship of Christians, located in Lititz, Pennsylvania!
The purpose of Hosanna! A Fellowship of Christians is to be an organic community of faith that provides space, opportunity, and resources for individuals and groups to encounter Christ and His people, and to be transformed by that experience. Hosanna!’s unique identity is captured in the statement "breaking rules, breaking barriers, and breaking chains."
Worship Services begin at 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM, every Sunday
We worship an amazing God:
He is indescribable...yet knowable
He is uncontainable...yet lives in my heart
He reveals and He conceals
He invites and He hides
He confounds and He confides
Who thunders and whispers, terrifies and befriends.
He is all-consuming yet kind, all-knowing yet capable of forgetting the sins He forgives.
He is a King whose footstool is the earth, yet humbly washed the earth from the feet of those He discipled.
He is the God of the smallest detail and the grandest design.
The suffering servant who commands the universe.
He is the Savior who hung in agony on beams of wood He himself had called into being.
He is worshipped by the multitudes of heaven yet rejoices over a single returning heart.
He is the ruler of the universe and Lord over nations, but His greatest desire is to reign in our hearts.
(Loosely based on the beginning of chapter 3 from Matt Redman's book, Facedown)

Resurrection Christ Church Update - 1 May, 2013
Hari and Penka are coming to Lancaster!
It is hard to believe that in a few days Hari and Penka will be coming to Lancaster. They will be arriving late May 8th and staying with Kevin and Jessi Zimmerman. They will be leaving for Indiana early Saturday May 18th. Before they leave we will be holding a drop in for them. It will be Friday evening May 17th from 4pm to 8pm at Kevin and Jessi's home. We will send out an evite later this week. We want to thank George Ainsworth and the organization at Advancing Native Missions for both bringing them to the States and for allowing them to spend several days in Lancaster. Pray for safe travels and good health.
Regarding the court case. The builder has appealed to their Supreme Court. Last week the church received their copy of the builders filing. The church has until May 26th to submit their rebuttal. Then the Supreme Court will review both submissions and decide if there is sufficient reason to schedule a hearing. Unless there was a procedural error or some new evidence is produced the Courts could conclude that the appellate court ruling stands and that would be the end of the case. It would finally be over. The builder has hired a new lawyer who has connections in the Supreme Court. Our prayer is that God will cause the Judges to have favor on the church and then do what is right, regardless of their connections. Let us join together in asking God to again move mightily so that His name will be praised. May the builder be humbled and come to know the Lord and Savior.

Thank you for all your prayer support. We felt God's presence all day. We came back from Plovdiv at 6 PM. Now is about 7PM.
Both sides appealed and after that the Judge team gave time to both sides, about 10 days to write a defense and send it to the Court. Also the Judge gave a date - 1st of March - for the Court decision. We hope it will be final. We have to continue our prayers next weeks. In the Spirit, God gave us in the morning Psalms 5:12. We had confidence in the Lord in His Victory. We think that the Court will confirm the first decision, but our Lawyer said that nothing is sure until it happens. We feel that we must continue to trust in the Lord for a good final. Probably we will still need about BG LEVA 3000 after March 1st and we will have 14 days after the final decision to pay all money owed. Let's see what God will do next.
Staying in touch with you!
Tomorrow we will continue the work to distribute brochures and NT in the villages.
