Database Manager on September 30, 2019:

The church has closed due to membership dwindling; the last service was held April 26, 2016. Several years ago, the church sold its building to the Gamut Theater and relocated its bell to the denomination's seminary in Scotland, just outside Chambersburg. The small congregation continued to meet at a community center in Harrisburg, but membership failed to grow and most recently had dwindled down to about eight.
