Check out what’s happening at First Church.







 First Church remains committed to being a blessing to our community. One way that we can do that is by seeking the common health and well-being of all. Therefore, we seek to be compliant with health department guidelines for reducing the spread of COVID19.  Beginning November 20, 2020, everyone inside church facilities will need to wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose.  The PA Department of Health will be requiring masks to be worn when you are inside, around people outside your family, even if you are also socially distanced (more than 6 feet).

It is easy to become lax in following through on these guidelines. Therefore, it is imperative that we respect each other by following these guidelines completely. Please wear a mask, at all times when in our church facilities, including nose and mouth, while maintaining a social distance of 6 feet or more. When we all follow these guidelines completely we can rest assured we are seeking to keep everyone safe. Additionally, if we follow these guidelines in their entirety we can also continue our sanctuary worship experience at 10 AM on Sunday mornings and allow limited singing in that worship time while knowing we are responsibly practicing necessary precautions based on the latest health department information. The key at this time, however, is all of us wearing masks all the time when in church facilities, whether for worship or general meetings. 

We take heart in knowing this is only for a season and that we will get through this.  Thank you for the ways that you have adapted as we seek to respond in a faithful manner. We are grateful for this cooperative spirit of so many and want to do all that we can so that we can continue to offer ministry to and with our community.
