Message, News and Events


Face masks are no longer required for those fully vaccinated and past the 5-day waiting period when at worship or in the building. If you are not comfortable being in the building or at worship without your mask on, then please feel free to wear one. If you are not fully vaccinated, for your own protection, please continue to wear a mask. We certainly don't want any of our members to become sick. May God continue to heal us and bless us as we continue to do God's work in our communities and the world.

The Food Pantry will continue to operate under a drive-thru system, and any students needing volunteer hours for school or college related organizations may contact Mrs. Carolyn Long via the church office at 610-377-4303.

Receive God's Love

If the name and character of Jesus had not been love, it would have been impossible for imperfect and sinful people to enter into a relationship with Him. But because He is love, He calls you to Him.
