Our Parish leadership has been meeting to a plan safety protocols and to develop meaningful worship services. The reality is worshiping in a sanctuary presents a significant level of risk for contracting the Coronavirus. The guidelines we have established will help to limit that risk, but not eliminate it. Please download and read this document regarding the In-Person Worship Services.
Weekly Bible Study Opportunities
Each begins at 7:30 a.m. but are archived and accessible following the live event.
Wednesday's Bible study is a dig into the text to learn more about its meaning. Friday's Bible study is a response to comments and questions from Wednesday.

Deacon Gary Schaeffer serves as Milton Lutheran Parish’s interim pastor and leads our online worship services, bible studies, spiritual practices, and drive-through prayer and communion each week. We are thankful for his leadership and creative worship experiences which have kept us spiritually strong and connected through the COVID-19 pandemic. Visit the documents page for resources. All are welcome.
Based on the recommendations of the Center for Disease control and prevention and the decision of the Governor of Pennsylvania to implement a statewide shutdown, the decision has been made to postpone all in person gatherings at the church including worship, and all other activities, for the time being. This decision is not one that is made lightly, but one that is made in prayer and out of a concern for the health and safety of our whole community.
Please know that as the old Sunday School song goes, “The church is not a building, the church is the people," we continue to be the people of God, though not physically gathered for a short time. We recognize that it is important to be in prayer and focus on our relationship with God. Our staff, councils, and leadership are developing opportunities for providing spiritual nurture to our congregation during this time.
