As we transition into a new season this fall, the State College Alliance Church staff continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in our church and community. Our goal is to continue to provide both in-person and online worship services and other opportunities to gather for worship, fellowship, and discipleship, while still maintaining our focus on care, flexibility, and transparency. As we have seen an increase in recent weeks of both COVID-19 case counts and hospitalizations, we believe that an increased focus on safety is in order. So for the time being, until the numbers substantially decrease again and we return to a season of low transmission and lower risk for the vulnerable, we will be strongly encouraging everyone who comes to a large, indoor gathering at the church to wear a face covering. We deeply value the opportunity to worship together in person, and we believe that widespread mask wearing during worship services and other gatherings is a simple way to demonstrate care for our church and community and minimize the likelihood of more significant changes to our services in the future.
