MEETINGS and EVENTS
Due to outbreak of Covid-19, all meetings and events have been canceled until further notice, wrote Pastor Kirby Lawrence of Abington Presbyterian.
Stay in touch with friends and loved ones via phone or email. It is not your imagination our minds get duller !
Wear a mask! AND wash hands when you re-enter your home.
Again, wash your hands, for 20 seconds.
