Important Church News

Current Policy - Masks Required: Please wear a face covering inside the church building during all gatherings, including worship services. We will be singing hymns during the worship service with masks on. (The choir may remove their masks during the anthem while in the choir loft.) Your patience and grace is appreciated as we all continue to safely navigate the pandemic.

A time of transition: Our church is in a time of transition as the Session begins a search for an interim pastor and, following that period, a new permanent pastor. Until that time, we welcome our supply pastors who will be delivering a message each Sunday from the pulpit. Thank you for your patience and prayers during this time.

Thank you to Hokey Firehall! Hokey Firehall gave our church a generous donation of $1000 in December. Thank you to our next door neighbors!

2022 Per Capita: Per Capita for each member is $43.13 for the year 2022. The amount is set by the Lehigh Presbytery. Thank you for paying your per capita in a timely manner. (Please make the designation on your check or digital transaction.)

CookbookChurch cookbook proceeds donations: To date, profits (after expenses) from our new cookbook "Feeding Your Flock" are $800. The committee decided to send $400 checks to both the Whitehall Food Bank and the Whitehall-Coplay Hunger Initiative. The cost is only $10 for 160+ pages of yummy recipes contributed by our congregation and friends! We still have a few copies left! Please email our church office at hokeypres@gmail.com or call the office at 610-264-9693. Thank you to all who purchased a cookbook, donated recipes, and thanks to all who donated their time putting this cookbook together!

Candy Sale Proceeds: Our profits (after expenses) was $1231. Part of the funds will be used to replace loose Formica on the church kitchen island as well as the purchase of a stand mixer. TBD for the rest of the proceeds. Thank you to all who purchased candy and made the candy!

Mitten Tree Donations: 82 items were donated to Turning Point. Thanks for your donations of hats, mittens, gloves, and scarves!
