Saint Peter's UCC Covid-19 Protocols for Members 

We have been blessed to have our pavilion for outdoor worship during the pandemic. With winter approaching, that becomes less practical, so we will begin indoor worship on Sunday, November 1. The leaders of the church are mindful of the risks of gathering indoors, especially for those who are at higher risk because of age or pre-existing medical conditions. We know that Covid-19 hospitalizations are increasing in Pennsylvania. We know that indoor worship isn’t the best choice for everyone right now, and online worship will continue for those who prefer it.

We are relying on your help to protect our church family. We’ll be living with Covid-19 for a long time, so it’s important to have procedures and habits that help us all be safer. You can view them below​ or download a copy.


What must you do to help?

Stay home if you feel sick. If you develop symptoms after attending a service or event, contact the church office.

Do not wear a mask with an exhalation valve. We have disposable masks in our welcome center if you need one.

Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth. If you need a mask, pick up a disposable one in our welcome center.

Kids should sit with their families. Activity sheets are provided. Weekly Sunday school continues by email and confirmation classes with online meetings.

If you wear a visor, please add a mask when you’re indoors. You can pick up a disposable mask in our welcome center.

Please go outdoors to catch up with your church family. Masks and social distancing are important outdoors, too.

What has Saint Peter's done to make indoor worship safer?


Online worship continues. If that's best for you, look for our messages and videos on Facebook.

We require the use of face coverings following Pennsylvania’s order, and we supply disposable masks.

We have posted information on ways you can reduce disease transmission in our building and on our website.

The heating/air conditioning system is set to provide both ventilation and filtration during services.

In addition to regular weekly cleaning, wipe-downs of high-touch restroom surfaces are done by volunteers after events and services.

Questions? Please contact our church office.

Physically distanced seating is arranged in the sanctuary, and our ushers direct family units to seats.

We have modified our worship service to reduce the length of exposure to aerosols and droplets.
