Friends - with a snow emergency called by Hanover Township and the City of Bethlehem for Wednesday, March 7, Clerk of Meeting is asking us to worship in the safety of our own homes instead of coming to the meetinghouse for Midweek Meeting for Worship.
As of about 12:30 pm on Saturday, the meetinghouse is still without power. We expect service to be restored soon. The building is intact. We lost several trees around the property, with the most serious damage being a tree hitting the ramp and steps leading away from the meeting room and to the shed. Otherwise the building is intact. Stay tuned for further announcements.
