The Ministry Council has reached a consensus to remain virtual for worship

                                  and will reevaluate this stance on a regular basis                                as the COVID statistics are updated.

Ultimately, the Council agrees that new weekly positive cases in Mifflin County should be around or under 100 before considering in-house worship (which would still employ physical distancing and wearing masks). Thanks for your patience and compassion for all of God's church during these virulent times. Peace.
