We reopened our Church for Sunday Services on June 7th

Our Church building has been closed due to the Covid-19 virus however, we reopened our Church on Sunday, June 7th.  Pastor Dave had been recording a weekly sermon for us to use in our devotions at home but now we are recording the entire Sunday morning service for those not yet comfortable coming in to our church service.  Click the large picture of the Pastor on the HOME page to view the past week's service.  Continue scrolling here to read how we are prepared to worship together following all Federal, State, Local and CDC guidelines.

To:  Emanuel Loganville Church Fellowship:

Greetings to each of you as we have now weathered the storm of the past few
months! It is with great joy that we have now reopened our church so
that we can again return to worshipping our Father God, through His Son Jesus
Christ, with the power of the Holy Spirit in fellowship with one another!

We reopened safely under the guidelines established by our local, State and
Federal governments through the guidance of our Susquehanna Annual
Conference. After each Sunday service, our facility will be sanitized as far as
surfaces, restrooms, door handles, and pew rails. Hand sanitizer will be available
throughout the facility.
Here’s what you can expect when you come to worship

• A Greeter will be at the entrance door to welcome you and to open the door
for you. You are asked to use the side Sunday School door.
• We ask that our congregants utilize the space in our sanctuary to meet
distancing guideline requirements.
• No Sunday School (adult or children’s time) until further notice.
• Bulletins will be available for you to pick-up.
• Hymnal use for singing will be acceptable, but the hymnal should be left on
the pew after worship so that it can be segregated for an adequate amount of
time before being reintroduced for use.
• You are encouraged to refrain from physical contact—shaking hands,
embracing, and the passing of the peace.
• You are required to wear a mask while entering and exiting the church.
Wearing a mask is optional during worship. If you do not have a mask, one
will be provided upon entering the facility.
• Offering plates will not be passed during worship. An offering plate will be
on the counter near the sanctuary entrance/exit so that giving on Sunday can resume.
• The Sacrament of Holy Communion will not be celebrated in June.

While we have taken these precautions and made these preparations for Worship, we recognize there are those that still may not feel comfortable or safe
gathering together with others for any number of reasons. We respect that choice
and those decisions completely. Gathering in large groups always carries inherent
risks. Until the time comes when you feel it’s safe to worship within the assembly
of the congregation, we will continue to provide  a video link of the worship service. This link will be made available following the worship services on each Sunday and should be available to be viewed no later than Tuesday evening.

If you have any concerns, questions, or would like to simply discuss our plans, feel
free to call the Pastor, or your church leadership so that we can fully understand your
concerns. It is our goal to do whatever we can to ensure that each of you who
choose to gather can do so with the assurance that you are doing so in a very safe

I would also ask each of you to keep not only our own reopened Church, but
churches across our nation and all the world in your prayers as we seek God’s
blessing and guidance in all that we do.

Peace & Blessings,
Emanuel Church
