We have re-opened as of July 26th!

Please note that this has been pushed back one week to July 26th, as Governor Wolf has changed PA re-opening guidelines.

Re-open Plan Highlights

  • We will return to in-person worship on July 26th (not July 19th, as originally planned).
  • We will have one service at 9:00 AM (with no congregational singing until further notice).
  • Hand sanitizer must be used upon entry to the building.
  • Anyone 2 years and older must wear a mask at all times while in the building.
  • 6-foot social distance must be maintained at all times between people who are not coming from the same household.
  • Elevator will be restricted to 1 person at a time (unless people from same household ride together).
    Please maintain 6-foot social distance while waiting in line.
  • Hugging and handshakes are not permitted at this time.
  • Seating will be in designated areas of Sanctuary–1 or 2 people at each end of open pews (2 people from same household may sit together at one end). In Narthex, you may sit in chairs that have been placed 6 feet apart.
  • Offerings will be placed in basket upon leaving Sanctuary.
  • Clorox wipes will be provided in restrooms to wipe down frequently touched surfaces after use.
  • At-home worship materials will be provided to those who are not yet able to return to in-person worship.

Our service will be live streamed

We plan to livestream the 9am services on Facebook (you do not need an account) starting July 19th. You can watch that live there or through our site here. It will also be available to watch again after the service has concluded.

(See CHURCH OPENING POLICY DURING CORONAVIRUS for the entire Plan based on recommendations from the Re-Open Team and approved by Church Council and the District Superintendent on June 24th.)

Summer Music Camp 2020

Dear Parents & Campers,

Annually, a month ahead of time, we would be getting charged up and organized for another exciting week with children and youth throughout the area for a special week of MUSIC CAMP.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the guidelines of our state and the fact that our church has not been open since March, it is not possible to offer this enriching musical week with you this year. We regret making this decision to cancel SMC this year. It is important to have camp when it is safe. It is difficult to imagine a week of coming together to sing and make music with the guidelines of social distancing and wearing masks.

We will, however, look forward to the future. We hope that you will reserve the last full week of June 2021 when the SMC staff will welcome you to Faxon-Kenmar for another great week of fun at SUMMER MUSIC CAMP 2021!

SAVE THE DATES June 21-25, 2021

The joy of music ALWAYS continues. Keep a song in your heart and a melody on your lips and we will see you in 2021!

David Koskey, Director of Music Ministries
