Local Churches

Messiah University is privileged to be welcoming students back to campus this semester for in-person classes, and we would love for them to get plugged into local churches as much as possible! The safest way to attend church is to join one of the streaming services listed below. If you choose to attend a worship service in-person, it is important that all of the below guidelines are met in order to best protect the Messiah University community and meet the spirit of the Messiah Community Promise to which we have all committed. Specifically, these practices must include the following protocols both indoors and out:

1. Masks must be worn by attendees at all times. 

2. Social distancing of 6-feet must be practiced by all attendees.

3. Increased cleaning and disinfecting protocols must be in place.

4. Good respiratory etiquette should be encouraged and practiced.

5. Everyone must wash their hands frequently and hand sanitizer must be readily accessible for times when hand washing may not be immediately possible.

6. If the event involves children’s programming, it should also follow these same guidelines.

7. Everyone must commit to staying home when not feeling well.

Please note that congregant singing has been shown to significantly increase the spread of COVID-19, therefore even when following the parameters above, we advise against attending any indoor event that involves congregant singing.

At this time, we are unable to accommodate van/bus shuttles to campus. Students can provide their own transportation or take advantage of any of the streaming options provided below.
