In response to the Covid-19 virus, activites at the church are currently on hold. However, our faith and communication with each other is never on hold, even if we need to find creative ways to continue. The following is a list of resources that you can listen to or read to provide inspiration and comfort during these difficult times. Come back and check from time to time as these resources will be updated.

Thoughts from Pastor Mary Our Lenten theme “Be Not Afraid” seems so appropriate in light of this current crisis. Our Lord promises to be with us, even until the end of the age. Even more than this, Jesus is present through all of us as we are present for each other. We can get through this, and we can find meaning in serving our neighbors. I am available for anyone who needs comfort or prayer at (610)780-7532. If you are in need of the sacrament, I am available. Please don’t be afraid. We are in the loving arms of a mighty God. Blessings to you all. Love, Pastor Mary
Holden Evening Prayer This recording was sung as a Christmas worship service during the annual celebration of Holden around the World. Since we can't gather to sing this together during our Lenten time, use this as a way to worship each in your own homes.
