Buchanan COG is returning to in-person sanctuary worship on
Sunday, July 12 at 9:00 AM & 11:00 AM
We are excited to announce that we will also be
live-streaming our worship gatherings on YouTube Live.

Guidelines for attending Sunday worship gatherings in person
To help us keep you and others safe and healthy during this time of reopening, when you come on Sunday mornings please DO:

Please consider wearing a mask.  Because social distancing is more difficult inside our building we are asking you to consider wearing a mask unless it’s medically impossible for you to do so. There will be masks available on a first come first serve basis. We encourage you to bring and wear your own cloth mask.

Because hand sanitizer is so difficult to find at this time we encourage you to bring your own hand sanitizer so that the church supply lasts longer.

Seating for worship will follow social distancing guidelines. Once all available space is filled in the sanctuary, then we will begin to seat you in the fellowship hall where a live video feed of the service will be available. The doors will open at 8:30 AM. There will be ushers available to help you find a seat.

Bring your tithes and offerings. Offerings will be collected by ushers, we will not pass the baskets.

Visit with Buchanan COG family and friends outside before and after services.
We encourage not gathering together in the lobby.

Nursery will be available for first service.  No children’s church yet.

The broadcast to 100.5 will still be available in the parking lot for those more comfortable in their own cars.

Updates on other ministries at Buchanan 
These ministries will continue at a later date but are not available in person yet:
Children’s ministries, including access to the nurseries and Children’s Church
We will share further information as soon as these ministries can meet in person safely.

We’ll be together in worship–whether at Buchanan or at home.

We’d love to see you, but we encourage you to please stay home and worship with Buchanan online if you:
have underlying health conditions
aren’t feeling well on Sunday morning
have any concerns or unease about crowds or COVID-19
are enjoying the worship experience at home

Our live-streamed worship services will now be a permanent part of our worship experience at The Buchanan Church. 

Like all things in life, these guidelines and plans are subject to change. We will continue to update them as we follow CDC guidelines and directions from the PA Department of Health as they continue to adjust to how COVID-19 affects our community. Of course, we will keep you updated as well.

The path to returning to worship in person will be different for each of us. As we travel together we will work diligently to keep everyone safe while providing a variety of ways to worship God and grow in faith.

No matter when or how we meet, our aim remains the same as before: to grow in our relationships with God, the Church and the world as we learn to become like Jesus.

You can find our church’s virtual sermons and bible studies through our YouTube Channel , our church Facebook page or you will find the links on our website under Video Sermons & More or Virtual Bible Studies.

The Church office is open throughout the week.  Please feel free to call the office at 724-455-7715 if you need anything.  If there is no answer,  please leave a message and we will get back in contact with you.

Prayer
We would love to pray with you and for you.  Email us (bcg@lhtot.com) with your request and we will pass that request on to our Prayer Warriors.

Thank you for your patience during this unknown time we are experiencing.  Just remember we are still the Body of Christ.  God is who He says He is and we can put our faith and trust in Him.

Let’s continue to be the Church!
