Meet our staff!

The people at Reality Church are interested in what is real, friendships, and making a difference in the community and world. Together, we love exploring who Jesus is, and see Jesus as a guy who was great to be with, wasn’t afraid to party or be serious, and was more concerned with loving people than he was in offending the ‘religious’. We’d love for you to come be our guest one time and see if this is your thing. Questions for us? Call or text 717-286-3287
