Though we are not prone to overreaction, we believe we should comply with the request made by our governmental officials to practice a period of social distancing. It is simply the right thing to do – right both for medical, but also for spiritual reasons.
We must never lose sight of the fact that while the Christian path is about our own individual spiritual growth, it is never only just about that. And so while it would be easy for us to say that there is no need to cancel corporate Worship, or take any other measures recommended by medical experts and scientists, because the virus has not directly affected any of us, it would not be the most faithful thing to do.
The early Christian leader Paul tells the Christian community in Corinth during a time of great stress not to lose heart because their struggles will not last, in that time of struggle is an opportunity for them to grow closer to being the kind of spiritual community that God calls them to be. Let us do the same – for each other and for the common good.
We want to keep in regular contact with members of our congregation who live alone, or who have health issues which make them particularly vulnerable to the virus. If you would be willing to call a few friends to check on their well-being that would be a great help. If you are in need of pastoral visits or other assistance from our Deacons or Elders or if you are able to help us reach out to our members please contact the church office by phone, email, Contact Us section on our website or message via our FB Page

We know that there is mounting concern and uncertainty as our nation and the world deals with the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID19).
Effective March 15, 2020, we are closing the church building to all activities through March 28, due to the restrictions on COVID-19 that have been extended to include Bucks County.
All worship services are canceled. Sunday School, Youth Club, all meetings, Boy Scouts and Recovery Group meetings will not be held. The Child Care Center is also closed.
We are currently holding DRIVE IN STYLE worship services. If you can't make it out to the church, you can still view on YouTube or the home page of this website within a few days of the actual service. Communion Sundays (first Sunday of the month) please bring bread and juice so you may partake of the Lords Supper in your car.
We are planning a Congregational Meeting for the purpose of
electing a Pastor Nominating Committee.
The pandemic has forced us to be more creative in how we meet, whether it is a church service in the parking lot or meetings online. To get the most members involved, we will do an on-line meeting. This will be a challenge,so we are going to have a trial Congregational Electronic-Meeting (E-Meeting)
Trial Run Wednesday May 20, 2020 at 7 pm
The actual Congregation meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 27th at 7pm, using the same electronic format from the Trial run.
There will be several options to log in or call in to an e-meeting. But first we need to make sure as many members as possible are able to connect online or call in, which is why we will have a trial run to test the capacity of the system. The goal is for people to familiarize themselves with the way they choose to connect in
to the meeting. Note: You do not need to have a computer to join the meeting. Plan to spend about 30 minutes for this trial run.
Options in ways to join the meeting:
Computer, Tablet or Smart phone
Landline phone - Dial the phone number to join the meeting
We have a training plan that each person will need to have in front of them as we do the trial. It will include the trial plan, access numbers, as well as how the actual Congregational meeting will be run. Everyone, regardless of their experience will need the document in front of them. We will distribute the document to everyone who attends the Drive-in service on Sunday, May 17th.
What we need to know who is not attending the Service on Sunday, so we can send you the information as soon as possible.
If you will not be attending: please call or email the church prior to
Thursday morning, May 14th.
If you will be attending on the 17th, you will receive the information then.
