Beginning October 11, you can join us for worship in our Sanctuary at 11 am on Sunday mornings. 


Because of the continuing safety concerns presented by COVID-19, we want to make this a safe experience for everyone. With that in mind, we present the following guidelines for indoor worship:

  • Attendance will be limited to 25 people for each service. (This includes the Pastor and all worship participants.) 
  • You may reserve a space by calling the church office at (570) 587-3206. Reservations will be accepted by  telephone only. Don’t worry if we run out of room for your desired Sunday - you can always reserve a spot at another upcoming service.
  • Entrance will be through the main (upstairs) doors only. Doors will open at 10:45 am for the 11 am service. This is to allow us time to tear down and put away equipment from the 10 am Drive-In service.
  • Everyone attending will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms and have their temperature checked. Anyone  reporting possible symptoms or with a temperature over 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit will be asked not to attend that day.
  • If you do not feel well, please stay home. If you have made a reservation and decide not to come, please call us as soon as possible so your spot may be given to someone else.
  • All persons attending will be required to wear face masks during the entire service.
  • Families may sit together in the pews. Social Distancing (6 feet) is required between families.
  • There will be no congregational singing or responsive/unison readings.
  • A drop-off container for your offering will be available on your way out, or you can use online/mail in options.
  • Hearing Assistance Receivers will be available for use and will be thoroughly sanitized after each use.
  • Restrooms will be available; however, we strongly encourage you to use them only if absolutely necessary.


We will continue to offer the following worship opportunities:
