TPC’s Covid-19 Response – Schedule Updates, Streamed Services, & Ways to Stay Connected

Schedule Updates, Online Offerings, & Ways to Stay Connected

 

All of TPC’s leadership conveys our hope and prayers that you and your loved ones are well.  If you stand in need of care, please let us know.

Leadership also requests our communal solidarity as we seek to do our part in mitigating this pandemic.  As such, ALL of Towson Presbyterian Church’s in-person gatherings and activities, including worship, are cancelled through April 26.

We grieve that this includes Holy Week and Easter, and that we won’t be able to physically gather amid this special season.  Yet, even amid this difficult time, we are called to look for the promise of resurrection, that while some things may seem to end, new life still blooms.  Indeed, while we may not physically gather, we will still to be the body of Christ in the world today.  The Church never has been and never will be a “building.”  We are a mission.  A movement.  A people led by God’s very Spirit as we seek to grow closer to God and who God continually calls us to be.

Please look below for the emerging ways in which we will continue to worship, serve and grow closer to God during this pandemic.

Faith At Home

The Faith at Home section of our website is expanding all the time, offering each and all opportunities to explore and grow in faith wherever you may be.

Check back regularly to explore these curated resources (including videos, blogs, online classes, and more).

 

Member Care

Leaders are dividing our congregation up via “households” so that we can reach out to each and all in order to communicate any of the above that has not yet reached them, and to learn any additional needs we may be able to serve.

Please understand that staff is not permitted to visit hospitals, retirement communities, rehabilitation centers, and nursing homes during this time.  Pastors are available, however, for phone counsel.

The Hope of Our Faith

We offer the gentle reminder that God is no less present with us amid these (admittedly) different days.  Times of wilderness call for patience, compassion, and eyes of faith to look for the new things God is doing around and within us.

Dear friends, rest in the assurance that God is with you, and know that nothing can separate you from God’s love.
