Pastor Ryan will be leading worship outdoors in the OWC at 9:15am and 10:30am.
Based on the expanded mask-wearing order from Governor Wolf and Health Secretary Levine announced on July 1, 2020, CUMC is now requiring that masks be worn outside for worship, as well as inside the church according to the following criteria from the governor:
“Individuals are required to wear face coverings if they are:
Outdoors and unable to consistently maintain a distance of six feet from individuals who are not members of their household;
In any indoor location where members of the public are generally permitted; …”
“Exceptions to Face Covering Requirement
Individuals who cannot wear a mask due to a medical condition, …”
This change in health rules related to COVID-19 is necessary for the health and safety of our families and for those most vulnerable as the state has seen recent spikes in virus cases. So please wear your mask if you are able to attend worship on Sundays and anytime you need to enter the church building when others are present. Thank you.

The Missions Committee of Christ Church will collect gently worn footwear in March to donate to Soles4Souls. Collection dates are March 1-March 29, 2020, with collection boxes at the Church. All footwear must be bound in pairs with a strong rubber band or by gently tying the laces together. Our collection is only for footwear although Soles4Souls also collects other goods. For more details, go to Soles4Souls.org or contact Jim Rinck, by clicking here.
Soles4Souls is a global not-for-profit institution committed to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty. The organization advances its anti-poverty mission by collecting new and used shoes and clothes from individuals, schools, faith-based institutions, civic organizations and corporate partners, then distributing those shoes and clothes both via direct donations to people in need and by provisioning qualified micro-enterprise programs designed to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities. Soles4Souls has distributed more than 22 million pairs of new and gently worn shoes to people in 127 countries.
Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Soles4Souls is committed to the highest standards of operating and governance. The organization came under criticism for not adequately explaining the destination of donations. To be clear, about a third of the footwear is provided at no cost and about two thirds sold at low cost to supply micro-enterprise programs such as street or market vendors who work and earn income selling used shoes.
By donating you get a clean closet, pay nothing but a rubber band, and feel good! If you would like a donation receipt for your tax records, please contact Jim Rinck by clicking here.
