Dear WGUMC Members and Friends,
This afternoon, representative leadership of WGUMC Church Council met in my church office to discuss the current COVID-19 Pandemic and its impact on our church, ministry, and programs.
In consultation with Bishop Peggy Johnson and District Superintendent Rev. Bass, and because of the directive of Governor Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania issued just minutes ago, we have made the decision to close Willow Grove Methodist Church during the corona virus pandemic effective today, Thursday, March 12 for at least two weeks. This includes the closure of not only church-related programs but also all community hosted events and tenants - and is inclusive of this evening's choir rehearsals.
At this very moment, we as leadership are continuing to brainstorm how to notify our church membership and extended community. The leadership is also in thoughtful conversation about our congregational faith needs as well.
Please continue to call the church office for updates, at 215-659-3232, where messages will be regularly checked. Updates will also be reflected on church facebook page.
Pastor Lorelei can be contacted directly in and for emergencies, directly at 267-326-3682.
