Worshiping in the Yellow Phase

At some point in the "Yellow Phase" of pandemic re-opening, MCCLV will be returning to in-person worship. However, this will be a very different worship experience due to directives from the State of Pennsylvania.
  • MCCLV will be limited to 25 people on the property and will use an online reservation process for attendance.
  • Individuals/Couples/Families will be limited to attending worship in-person once per month and are invited to participate in worship online on the other Sundays of the month
  • All must observe a minimum of 6 ft social distancing guidelines while lining up outside as well as when in the sanctuary
  • All in attendance must wear a mask 
  • There will be no congregational singing, no communion served and no coffee hour though the Holy Spirit will continue to be present in the sanctuary (as well as online)
  • Weather permitting, the 25 worship attendees may fellowship post-worship on the lawn following social distancing guidelines
  • If directives are not followed, MCCLV will suspend in-person worship so the safety and health of all may be protected
  • Stay tuned to weekly emails for more information and, as with most things these days, all of this may change quickly 
  • Praise be to God, in advance, for everyone's patience with all of these items
Some at MCCLV will be angry or disappointed about this new way of "being the church." Others will be cheerfully helping things go smoothly. Thank you for lifting up prayer for grace for everyone.

P.S. Do you have extra masks? MCCLV would appreciate the donation of masks at this time.
