From the desk of our Pastor, Dr. Marvin R. Youmans
As of last Saturday, June 13, 2020, Rev. Youmans along with the Executive Board met to discuss protocol for returning to church. They are asking all members to be patient when returning. Upon entering the church, you must have your temperature taken. There will be one member in the lobby taking the temperature. Once this process is complete and there is NO issues, you will be able to enter the church. At that time, you will receive a special care bag. ALL members must sit at least six feet apart unless you are a family living in the SAME household.
In preparation for Communion, starting Saturday, July 4, 2020 you will be able to pick up your Communion Cups between the hours of 11am to 1pm. You may also pick them up on Sunday, July 5th before Noon. Rev. Youmans will do Communion immediately following Sunday Morning Service.
Continue to join us for Sunday School at 10am via Facebook Live or by conference call. Sunday Morning Service begins at 11:30am and Wednesday evening Bible class starts at 6pm. You may join the conference call at 1.717.275.8940, pin number 7658291#. Please after joining via conference call, make sure you press the MUTE button so your background noise cannot be heard.

As we continue to reflection on life, ask yourself the following questions:
Does your inner attitudes match your outward actions?
Do you have different standards of behavior when you are with different people?
Is your faith in Jesus a driving force in your life?
What is God’s ultimate purpose for you?
Do your attitudes and words promote unity or dissension?
Are you unspotted from the world?
Is your light shinning?
