COVID Precautions/News

Below are some precautions that we are taking for our in-person worship services.

First, we are offering ministry and care for our children during the 10:30 am Worship Service (nursery care, preschool class, or Children’s Church for grades K-5). The entire family is welcome in the sanctuary for the 9am worship service. 

Secondly, an online service option is available.  For those unable to meet in-person, we offer an online option. The link can be found on the home page.

We will be following the CDC and Pennsylvania suggested protocols as much as possible. The following guidelines will be observed:

  • Masks are encouraged. We will have a limited number available to hand out if needed. We understand that this is a personal choice, and we must respect each other’s decisions.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available and will be located throughout the building for all to use regularly.
  • Seating will be staggered to maintain a safe distance between families and individuals. 
  • Refrain from Physical Touch. While as a church we value personal connection and touch, we believe it’s wise to refrain from unnecessary physical contact at this time — no handshaking or hugs. During the service, we will not be having our normal time of greeting each other.  Offering baskets will be placed in the narthex for easy access.  Prepackaged communion elements will be available in the pews.

Throughout the services, ushers, greeters, and staff will be available to assist with seating, specific needs or concerns, and any questions you may have.

If you choose to gather with us for worship on Sundays, please be mindful of the following precautions: 

Sixty Five and Older: If you are 65 and older, understand that COVID-19 is very contagious and especially detrimental to those in this age category.  

Wash Hands: Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Stay Home If Sick:  As always, if you are sick or have symptoms, please stay home and worship there.
