Worship in the Sanctuary begins Sunday, Oct. 11


Cooler weather has arrived, and Camp Hill Presbyterian Church has planned for us to safely return to indoor services. We will resume worship in the sanctuary on Sunday, Oct. 11, at 10:30 a.m. (Worship will continue to be available online at the same time for those who can't attend the indoor service.)


Protocols have been prepared with prayerful consideration of the need to balance the spiritual health of our community with the physical health and welfare of all. Please carefully read these protocols:


Sanctuary Protocols

  • The sanctuary will be cleaned prior to scheduled use according to CDC standards.

  • A hand sanitizer station will be available upon entry to the sanctuary.

  • Air conditioning/heating and ventilation decisions will be made based on the timing of the scheduled gathering. To ensure proper ventilation, windows and/or doors will be opened.

  • Bathroom and elevator/handicapped access will be available for those who require it.

  • Individuals should enter through the Walnut Street door near the rear of the sanctuary, closest to the parking lot, and should depart using the same door.

  • Attendees should not access areas of the church that have been closed off with tape or signage.


Worship Protocols

  • To ensure adequate social distancing, worship attendance will be limited to 50 people. In the event those desiring to attend indoor worship sufficiently exceeds that limit, an additional service will be provided.

  • All attendees must agree to wear masks while in the church.

  • Pews may be selectively roped off or otherwise designated to ensure social distancing. Family members may be seated together. Non-family members (those not sharing a household) should be seated in a socially distant manner.

  • Worship service will include all core elements (prelude, welcome, prayers, scripture, sermon, benediction, and postlude). Music will be incorporated into the service, but there will be no congregational singing.

  • Offering plates will be placed at the doors for people to deposit their offerings upon arrival.

  • The use of church hymnals and bibles is not permitted. Printed information used as part of the service will be provided to participants as single-use materials.

  • A record of those attending the service must be kept for purposes of contact tracing. The church will provide a form to record the names and telephone numbers of everyone in attendance and will retain the information for a period in accordance with CDC guidelines.
