Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Savior,
The Governor’s mandate requires us to wear masks over our nose and mouth when we leave our homes. This impacts many people who are unable to wear masks for a long period of time.
We have the means to worship by phone and online so it makes the most sense to return to this mode during this time and also post the recorded service online around lunchtime for those who aren’t available for the live worship.
Join Pastor Theresa for praise and worship from wherever you may be. The bulletin and other resources are available at www.pennsvalleyparish.info and the phone lines open at 9:30am for chit chat, service starts promptly at 9:45am. Bulletins and more available on each Sunday’s Online Worship Link (click to view the list). All are welcome!

If you prefer to listen on the phone call: +1 708-713-5876 and when prompted enter the PIN: 992 148 847# (don’t forget the pound sign/hashtag)
Prayer is always welcome. The following is a prayer for the world at this time…
It seems like lots of uncertainty around us.
So many people who need prayers.
Today, I pray…
For those whose health is compromised by the coronavirus or other health issues.
For those who suffer from the economic impact of the virus, in travel, manufacturing, hospitality, energy or so many other industries.
For health care workers and first responders, and other public servants who put themselves in harm’s way for us.
For our leaders of the world, our countries, states, and cities, as they seek to help manage this challenge God, it can be overwhelming. But you tell us over and over again not to be afraid.
Show me how to trust in you.
As I examine my heart this season, help me to turn away from my concern with self, and turn my heart, hands, and prayers toward the concerns of others.
In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray.
Amen With hands to the plow,
