Dear Pennsylvania Church of God Family!
The past several weeks has brought much concern related to the current conditions regarding COVID-19. This pandemic has literally captured the attention of our world including our Pennsylvania Church of God family. Please know we are praying for our church family, local community, and our nation as we all deal with this situation together. It is so important to remember that God has not called us to be afraid, but instead to respond with love and wisdom. We are a people of faith, not fear. This is not a time for panic and fear, but rather a time to be prayerful and exhibit wisdom in God. My faith in God tells me that this present crisis will make us stronger and we will be the better for it. I am convinced that this is a moment in time that allow the people of God to be the beacon of hope the world so desperately needs. Please know that Kathy and I love you and are praying for you everyday. The State Office Team is here to serve you and we will labor together with you. Be assured that God is in control and He loves each us.
There has been a request by several churches for resources on how to tackle this "new normal" we are experiencing. You will find a few things below that we hope will help you and your church in your quest to be the most effective in reaching your flock and the community. Additionally, the Governor released a statement concerning closures and availability of non-lifesaving-businesses and organizations. Please make yourself familiar with the list by clicking the yellow button below. Religious organizations are listed under the last section of the list.
We are praying for God's guidance and protection over you,
Bishop Tony and Kathy Cooper
