Communion Policy

At St. John’s participation in Holy Communion is offered to any person who seeks to walk more closely with Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, either as a member of this congregation, guests, or visitors/members from other churches.  Our age and instruction recommendation is the following:

  • Those who have finished high school and are 18 years of age or older who have received instruction in this sacrament and have confirmed their faith and belief in God, our creator.  Or those 18 years of age or older who receive formal instruction with our pastor (instruction and amount of instruction time should be determined by the pastor following the first instruction).
  • Those who are 17 years of age or younger who have been confirmed at our church or any other church, and/or with their parent or guardian’s permission.

Snow Policy

The winter months mean there is chance for inclement weather. We will have church as long as the pastor can get to the church.  If we must cancel Christian Connection and/or worship, we will share this information via WLBR (1270 AM), WGAL-TV (channel 8) or WHTM-TV (channel abc27).  Robin Getz will also send out an email message and a message on the St. John’s UCC Facebook page.  Of course you can always call Pastor Tony or Louise Walmer (see your copy of the church directory or a bulletin for their phone numbers!).
