Dear Congregation,

Based on the recommendations of the Provincial Elders Conference as well as other government authorities, the Joint Board has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel Sunday Services for the next two weeks, March 15 and 22. We believe this is one way we can do our part to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The Boards will reconvene on March 26 to make further decisions about how we will operate as a church. During this time the building will be closed to all meetings and outside groups. 

In place of meeting in person, we will be offering a livestream worship service on March 15 and 22 at 10:30 A.M. through the Facebook live platform. You can access this using the following link:

Additionally, we will be posting a recording of the worship service on Schoeneck’s YouTube page later Sunday afternoon. This can be found at

Office hours will vary. If you need to contact the church, please leave a message at:  610-759-0376, or email at:, and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. In case of a pastoral emergency, please call Pastors Garritt and Sanette at 484-894-7188.

To help our church maintain its important mission to God’s work, please consider mailing your weekly offering or contact your bank to setup online payments. During this period of closure, we will continue to pay our staff and incoming bills. Checks can be sent to 316 North Broad St. Ext., Nazareth, PA 18064. 

In this time of difficulty, we remember that we have Jesus as our anchor and hope.  As Hebrews 6:19 declares: “ We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” Let us continue to secure our souls in God and to be His people in whatever ways we can. 

In Christ’s Service,

Schoeneck’s Joint Board
