Meeting for Worship Suspended until Further Notice

As the dimensions of the COVID-19 pandemic and the recommendations for response have become clearer, we find ourselves in a new situation which requires changes in our normal patter­­ns.  It is clear now that to “flatten the curve” of the surge in transmission of this virus, which will save lives, we must make bigger changes faster than we like.  Taking this in to account, starting March 15 Meeting for Worship at Central Philadelphia will be suspended until further notice We acknowledge and regret that COVID-19 will diminish our ability to meet in-person as a community for the near future.
