ALTERNATIVE WORSHIP EXPERIENCE (AWE)
A relaxed, informal worship experience in which to explore your spiritual journey in a community of fellow travelers.
AWE with Market Square Presbyterian is a relaxed, informal worship experience in which to explore your spiritual journey in a community of fellow travelers. Services are grounded in Christianity and Presbyterianism, but we also draw from the stories and sacred texts of a variety of other traditions and religions to inform our understanding of God. Worship includes different spiritual practices such as guided meditation, labyrinth walking, or creative responses. We incorporate silence as well, as we seek to listen to God together.
Worship is held in the church’s Geneva Room, on the fourth floor of the church and accessible by elevator. We typically worship twice per month on Sunday at 6PM. This year’s schedule of dates and our themes for the fall is below. Entrance into the church is best accessed through the door on the 2nd floor of the Market Street Garage (the church will pay for parking!). Directions for the garage are below.

Market Square Presbyterian Church is at the corner of South Second and Chestnut Streets in Harrisburg, PA. Parking can be a challenge in a downtown church, but we have the benefit of a parking garage adjacent to the building and the church pays for parking costs for those attending AWE (and those who worship with us on Sunday morning!). The entrance to the parking garage is on South Second immediately prior to the church.
Upon entering the garage, you receive an entrance ticket, which you need to keep. As you enter the church atrium, you will be given a second ticket. You need both tickets to exit the garage. As you exit the garage, insert the first ticket at the gate, and then immediately insert the second ticket.
