Covid-19 Conference Update

Category Announcements
Date March 22, 2021

UPDATED 4.28.21

We are looking forward to gathering with you at our East Coast Ministers’ Conference in less than a month! We wanted to take a minute of your time today to give you an update on what to expect this year at Etown due to the ongoing Covid situation. Although some of these items are subject to change as things develop in Pennsylvania, it is likely that we will have to comply with the following guidelines from Elizabethtown College when we gather:

• When indoors we will be required to wear masks.
• The dining hall will have some restrictions in place (amount of people per table, amount of people in the dining hall at one time) but thankfully there is plenty of outdoor seating. Pray for good weather! The college has a pretty good ‘take-out’ system that will enable you to grab all you’d like and find a comfortable place to eat outside.
• Rooming will be the same as always. In other words, the college will not be restricting the amount of people in shared rooms. So if you listed roommates, we will do our best, per usual, to honour your request.
• The location that we gather for our sessions – Leffler Chapel – has more than enough room to accommodate us and so we will gather there as usual.

We hope this brief update is a help to you as you plan. Although some of these restrictions will limit our abilities to fellowship we believe that we will be able to manage fine and have a spiritually refreshing time.

If you have questions or queries about the conference, please email info@banneroftruth.org

We trust that you and the church that you serve are knowing God’s preservation and blessing in these strange times.

Hope of the Church October 15, 2021

To help us in the dealings of our lives we should have such a conception of God as not to limit him in our thoughts. When we are in extremity we must not tie him to this thing or to that thing. He can make matter out of nothing. Why should we limit the unlimited […]
