“The theme for the month is “Finding Our Center”. I believe that this is finding what grounds us as we traverse this life. It means finding your footing on unstable ground, figuratively speaking. It means grounding yourself in truth and rediscovering your essence. It means feeling well, stable, inspired, and hopeful. What is most important to us and helps us the most? We will explore this theme on Sunday.”
The requirement of masks is based on the current COVID community risk level in Dauphin County. Masks are required for medium or high risk levels; they are optional when the county is in the low risk level. The current level will be posted on the front doors of the church.
