*Don't we trust God to protect us from the virus?
We are not called to be fearful. 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

Why is this church still meeting outside? There is a vaccine! Don't masks work? The church down the road has indoor worship so why don't we? When are we going back inside? Other churches are reopening for Easter!
This congregation must not trust God to protect them... (*see the answer to this last question below)
We have heard a lot of questions and some criticisms and in short there are no easy answers. Situations are different even among churches in the same neighborhood. In order to best serve our particular congregation Worship Committee and Session are following the guidelines of the Presbytery of Philadelphia which amount to this: If you can hold worship services outdoors, you should continue do so.
We have been blessed by God with the perfect set up for Drive-In Services and further blessed with a congregation who have the knowledge and willingness to make it work! For more information on Corona19 and the particular concerns of church congregations, please view the video meeting: Viruses, Vaccines and Variants, Oh My! featuring Lisa Allgood, Executive Presbyter in the Presbytery of Cincinnati AND a trained immunologist.
