Church Building Closure Update
February 18, 2o21: The Session of First Presbyterian Church of Hokendauqua has made the decision to continue the closure of the church building to public gatherings including worship service. The Session reviewed the following factors in order to come to this decision: sanctuary limitations with airflow in the winter months, vulnerabilities of our congregation members, lack of volunteers to monitor possible attendees with temperature checks and extra sanitation measures, and unwillingness of a majority of our members to attend in-person worship at this time. In addition, Session feels that any in-person worship at this time would not feel like a "normal" service due to lack of a choir, singing of hymns, passing of the peace/collection plate, and gathering before or after the service. It is a disappointment that Session members share with Hokey Pres congregation members.
Looking forward, Session anticipates a return to outdoor worship services when weather permits, and as more members of our congregation receive health protection from Covid-19 vaccines and herd immunity, Session will revisit in-person worship within the church building. Church worship services will continue to be livestreamed on Facebook.com/HokeyPres and recorded services posted on this website. If you would like printed copies of the sermons mailed to you, please call the church at 610-264-9693 and leave a message. Thank you for your understanding, and may God bless our church and our members.
