General Information


Pastor Brandon wants to remind you to continue to follow the CDC recommendations regarding COVID-19: wearing masks, hand washing often, and social distancing. 


Beginning tomorrow, April, 13, 2021, All Pennsylvanians( not Philadelphians) 16 and older may sign up for the COVID-19 vaccine. (PA. Dept. of Health)


This does not include Philadelphia, because we receive a separate allocation of vaccines. Beginning April 19, 2021, all Philadelphians 16 and older  will be able to get the vaccine. (phila.gov)


FEMA Funeral Reimbursements

FEMA began accepting applications for funeral reimbursements.  If a loved one died as a result of contracting Covid-19, you may be able to get a reimbursement of up to $9,000, or up to $35,000 if multiple family members died as a result of COVID.  The Death Certificate must have COVID-19 listed as the cause or contributing cause of death. You will be required to provide documentation. Go to FEMA.gov for further details required to file a claim.



Please pray for all of those on our Sick List and Prayerful Concern. We continue to pray for those whose names have been removed from the list recently. We All need prayer.
