WHAT IS THE STYLE OF HOTLF WORSHIP SERVICES?
HOTLF has two weekend services – our main Sunday 10:00am service and a more casual Saturday 6:30pm service, both are similar in format and contemporary style. Services feature contemporary worship, a Bible-based message, and prayer and ministry that center on worshipping God and strengthening your walk in Christ among other believers.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
At HOTLF, people are often dressed up or more casual. Just come in whatever you are comfortable wearing. At HOTLF, you’ll see all different styles of clothing. We are more concerned with meeting you than with your attire.
WHERE DO I GO WHEN I FIRST ARRIVE?
Parking is available with a few spaces in the side parking lot besides HOTLF’s church building during services and meetings. Two designated spaces are for staff pastors. Free street parking is also available surrounding the building. The parking lot entrance doors are handicapped accessible.
If you want help in locating a parking space or assistance in entering the building, our welcome teams are delighted to accommodate any of your needs. Please don’t hesitate to ask for assistance at the door.
Presently our sanctuary is located in the downstairs of our huge, beautiful brick 1870s church building. You can use either side entrance – parking lot side door (handicapped accessible) or Second Street side door (towards back of building, contains 1 large step up).
From the moment you arrive, our welcome team will greet you and assist and make you feel acclimated. If you have questions, just ask!
Our upstairs sanctuary and front areas of our church building are in the process of undergoing extensive renovations and presently not accessible.
CHILD-CARE – NURSERY
HOTLF is family-centered, and we believe children are a blessing from God. During our services and activities, all children are welcome to participate. Children activity packets are available free anytime.
HOTLF has a staff of trained, loving volunteers available to care for your child in the sermon part of Sunday services. Click Here for HOTLF Children Protection Statement.
Nursery is available for babies 6 months to 24 months.
Rooms and areas are available for nursing mothers and for changing and feeding infants and young children.
Although we currently do not offer Sunday school classes, we are in the planning stage and process of opening monthly Sunday classes for ages 7 to 12 later this winter.
Please don’t hesitate to ask any welcome team member if you need help on where to go or about available child care services.
HOTLF has a caring reputation for serving those with special needs. This is a place where those with special needs can come to and experience God in a personal way.
Our parking lot, parking lot entrance doors, downstairs rooms, and bathrooms are all handicapped accessible.
HOTLF is currently working hard in our extensive building renovations in modifying our old church building and upstairs sanctuary to accommodate and comfortably meet further special needs.

WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE?
LOCAL + GLOBAL + HEART = IMPACT
- Two key words in HOTLF’s vocabulary are local + global. We feel it is important for our members to take their faith outside our church walls and to make an impact for Jesus Christ in our community and around the world.
- There are countless ways to become involved by volunteering within HOTLF departments, outreaches, and activities, building renovations, as well as reaching out to our community and world missions. For example, some of our members volunteer with a program to distribute monthly food boxes in our community, partner with the Samaritan’s Purse project of Operation Christmas Child for shoeboxes to children world-wide, Stephen Ministries leaders for grief assistance; and some are involved in street evangelism and witnessing campaigns.
- Other members are working in Francophone Africa for Christian Broadcast Network (CBN) with missions, humanitarian aid, and TV-radio evangelism; ambassadors for Gideon Bibles; translators and linguists for HOTLF educational materials and Pastor John Snyder’s books; volunteers with Outreach churches in Costa Rica and with churches and organizations across Europe and Africa; and some are HOTLF financially sponsored missionaries in other countries.
- These are just a few ways the HOTLF Family is making a lasting impact, both locally and globally.
- HOTLF Pastors John and Lynn Snyder are active members of the local Clinton County Ministerium (SCCACC), Pennsylvania Pastors Network (PPN), America Pastors Network (APN); work closely with officials at Lock Haven University, and support local assistance agencies like the Salvation Army, Clinton County Women’s Shelter, and police, fire, and emergency personnel organizations. Pastors John and Lynn’s heart and vision is to connect and support pastors and churches across Pennsylvania, the USA, and the world by prayer, networking, and through their extensive global mission trips and ministry.
