Worship, Gatherings and Caring for All During these Dark Days (updated 12/12/20)
Pennsylvania and the rest of the country has now entered some of the most difficult days of the pandemic. As people of faith and as United Methodists we seek to live our lives sacrificially putting the needs of others above our own needs as we do what we can to help stop the spread of the virus until a vaccine can be widely circulated. Our Bishop, Jeremiah Park and the Cabinet have recently shared a letter urging all churches to limit our indoor in-person worship and gatherings for the rest of the year. Though this may difficult, we can put our preferences aside to do what is best for the health and safety of all.
Effective immediately, until further notice:
We will continue offering our online services via Facebook, YouTube with links on our website.
We ask that you join us in worship virtually if at all possible out of consideration for the health and protection of our tech team who are working diligently to bring you a quality, seamless worship experience.
Non-essential TUMC meetings and gatherings are asked to be held virtually (Zoom, emails, etc.) until further notice.
As the psalmist states, "Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes in the morning" (Psalm 30:5). We move forward into this dark season of the year as a people of hope. We look to the hope of the light of Christ. We know that God is with us and we will be able to gather in-person once again in the near future. You were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only don’t let this freedom be an opportunity to indulge your selfish impulses, but serve each other through love.14 All the Law has been fulfilled in a single statement: Love your neighbor as yourself. (Galatians 5:13-14 CEB)
