Making Disciples and Changing the World

Whoever you are, wherever you are from, you are welcome here.


The coronavirus and Stewartstown United Methodist Church - what you need to know. 
Stewartstown United Methodist Church will be holding in person worship beginning June 21, 2020 at 9:00 am.
When the weather permits, we will worship outside on the church lawn and ask that you bring your own chair and/or blanket.  
The worship service at 9 am will be recorded and then uploaded for those who wish to worship on line.    

Here are guidelines to keep everyone safe and healthy:
  • Please enter through the middle ramp door or the office side entrance at the back of the church or through the front door.
  • Everyone entering the church will be asked to sign in
  • Answer health screening questions
  • Fever of 100.5 F (38 C) or above, or possible fever symptoms like alternating chills and sweating
  • Cough
  • Trouble breathing, shortness of breath or severe wheezing
  • Chills or repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle aches
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of smell or taste, or a change in taste
  • Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
  • Headache
  • Have your temperature taken by a touchless thermometer
  • Masks will be required, at all times, within the building. 
  • Social distancing within the sanctuary is also required at all times, however, family units may sit together.
  • There will be no singing from the congregation and the nursery will be closed. 

Ways we can care for each other.
Nursing homes are currently refusing visitation so as an alternative it would be a good time for phone calls, notes, and cards to let our people know we care.
If you find yourself under a stay at home quarantine and need supplies that you can not leave home to acquire let the church office know.
And if you are willing to take supplies to people who are homebound let the office know that also.
 
Remember that our bulletins, announcements, and sermons are available on the church website,  by email, and on our churchapp for iPhones/iPads, Android/Google and Amazon tablets.
 
Remember that God is greater than anything we face. Stay at home if you can. Keep informed by reliable health experts.
 
Blessings,

Pastor Keith

This school year has started with some students on full-time distance learning, some only attending school 2 or 3 days, and some in school.
As a result, many families are frustrated as they try to mesh work schedules and learning supervision for their children.

A new Learning Support Center is being created to provide a supervised learning environment for school-age children (K-8th) of families burdened by area schools' reopening plans. It will be hosted by Stewartstown United Methodist Church to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment. The church's child-centered approach will focus on fostering curiosity, creativity, and confidence as they
navigate their online classroom and work through their school assignments.  Opportunities to make new friendships, develop new skills, and enjoy the fun of recreation will also be provided.

The daily schedule is the same as the local schools – 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with
options for attending up to 5 full days per week.
