    We have received updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Based on the information from the CDC, PA Department of Health, and our state and local officials, we understand the need to do our part to help stop the spread of coronavirus and the time to do this now.

    We know the coronavirus is primarily spread through close contact, and we are committed to helping you and your loved ones stay healthy. During this time of closure, the pastoral staff and official board will continue to meet to review CDC and PA Department of Health notifications, assess the situation, and determine our next steps. We will resume normal operations and services as soon as possible.

    The CDC has information to help you be proactive and stay safe. The CDC guidelines are found on their website at

    When fear and anxiety move into our hearts, remember that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control (2 Timothy 1:7). The peace that Jesus carried He gave to us (John 14:27). So, let’s continue to be wise in caring for our families, to trust that God is in control, and to pray for peace and healing in our communities.

    Thank you for your continued patience and support as we work together as a congregation and community. As always, if you have any spiritual needs, the pastoral staff will be available to talk with during this time at 724-887-5200. We love you and look forward to connecting with you online this Sunday!

    In Christ,
    Pastoral Staff and Official Board
