Easter Sunday Outdoor Services
In the Church Yard - bring your own lawn chair and your masks

Weather permitting: if weather is bad, 10am on zoom only
8am Service on the lawn only
10am Service on the lawn and zoom

  • Setup will be identical to our gathering for Rally Day last September

  • Masks Mandatory - even if you are fully vaccinated

  • Use the Pechin Gate

  • Sanitize as you come in 

  • Pick up a communion kit

  • I will email the service to everyone before Easter, so you can use a tablet or your phone to view the services,

  • Also, I will have the service on the screen

  • If you want a hard copy of the service, let me know... or 215-483-6968 opt 1

  • We will have music, but we will ask you NOT TO SING or sing to yourself... Churchwide is recommending no singing because particles carry faster through singing.  Yet, if you sing to yourself very low (whisper)... it would be the same as talking.  

  • We are having two services to spread folks out and allow for visitors. 


Please let me know if you have any questions. 



God is with you!
