Join us as Sunday School returns to in-person classes! We will kick off with our Rally Day on Sunday, September 12 at 9:45 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Sunday School classes are for all ages! Following the 11:00 service that day will be a church picnic.
Given recent updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the State of
Pennsylvania, and the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church
recommending that capacity and masking orders be lifted for all residents of
Pennsylvania both indoors and outdoors (except for health care settings and public
transportation), Quakertown United Methodist Church’s COVID protocol has been
revised and approved by Church Council to reflect these changes.

Good Afternoon Members, Friends & Guests of QUMC,
This Sunday, April 18 marks an exciting time for all of us at Quakertown United Methodist Church! Church Council met recently, making some important decisions impacting our church as we move forward and (hopefully) through this time of COVID-19. At the center of our conversations was finding a way to get us back together into our beautiful church building for worship.
Over the past year, we have worked to balance the safety and welfare of our church family with our united desire to return to a more normal worship setting. After reviewing the protocols initially established to navigate the threat of COVID-19, Church Council has determined it is time for our church to officially return to in-person worship beginning on Sunday, April 18th. Beginning this Sunday, we will offer 8:00 and 11:00 a.m. in-person worship in the sanctuary for up to 100 people, as well as 9:00 a.m. outdoor parking lot worship. 11:00 a.m. worship will continue to be livestreamed on Facebook and YouTube.
Those attending in-person worship will be asked to practice social distancing and to wear a mask.
We thank you for your prayers and support of Quakertown United Methodist Church during this difficult time of the pandemic. We all look forward to being together again and to seeing each other in person. Please join us when you feel ready to return to church!
