Salem UB Church Coronavirus/COVID-19 Update – March 17, 2020

In order to comply with restrictions issued by the CDC and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and in order to do our part to avoid the spread of Coronavirus and protect especially vulnerable people, beginning immediately all church activities including worship services, Wednesday evening activities, and any other meetings or gatherings will be canceled. We don’t know how long the restrictions will be in place, so at this point we can’t comment on how long things will be closed down. We will be in communication when we know when gatherings will resume.

Pete’s Pantry will be open under normal hours.

During this time, I encourage you to abide by the social distancing and personal hygiene recommendations of health authorities. I also encourage you to continue to engage in the life of faith. Be sure that you are doing what it takes for you to grow in your relationship with Christ through personal devotions, reading, and perhaps watching or listening to online messages by Christian leaders you have learned to trust (please be discerning).

Please seek opportunities to remain connected with people in our church family through phone calls and digital correspondence. Check in with those who may be having a hard time coping with the effects of this health emergency.

Also, consider this as an especially good opportunity to be a good neighbor to people in your community and sphere of influence. God often uses situations like this to allow us to “Be the Light of Christ” to others in an especially significant way.

Pastor Jason and Slugg will still be working during this time and though will limit their physical contact with people, they’ll certainly be available to talk with you. So, please do not hesitate to call the church office (717-263-4123) or their cell phones (Pastor Jason: 717-404-7074; Slugg: 717-816-9517) if you have any concerns you would like to talk through.

Something to remember is that our giving to God is not dependent on us meeting as a church. We give to the Lord as our response to him providing for our needs and out of our love and loyalty to Him as our Sovereign Lord. So, please consider continuing to be faithful in your giving, even during this time. You can always mail a check to the church (4349 Letterkenny Road, Chambersburg, PA 17201) or you may consider giving electronically through our website:

A problem like the coronavirus/COVID-19 can cause a lot of anxiety. But, it is times like this especially in which we need to hold fast to the truth of Scripture, remembering that our God is in control of our lives and we can put our trust in Him! It may be helpful for us to meditate on Jeremiah 17:7-8 which says, ““But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

And, of course, please be in consistent prayer– that God will deliver the world from this virus, for healing for those infected by it, for comfort for those who mourn, for followers of Jesus to minister with compassion, and for God to work through all of this to bring glory to Himself.

Our Great God is still good, still in control, and we can trust Him. Let’s continue to live in faithful obedience to Him!
Let’s also pray together for those affected by Coronavirus. Consider using this prayer guide:

Check out this video featuring Sally Wadel, a member of Salem who, with the help of others started and continues Salem’s Comfort Kitchen Ministry—serving the needs of family members and friends of those who are incarcerated.  This is one way that Salem Church is being the light of Christ!
At Salem, what we are all about can be described by three phrases. We are Spiritually Alive in Christ, United Together by Christ, and Being the Light of Christ. Being “spiritually alive” means that we have received the eternal life God offers to us by receiving Jesus as our Savior, we are submitting to Him as Lord, and we are depending on the power of Christ within us (the Holy Spirit) in daily living. Being “united together” means that we come together regularly to worship our awesome God, that we commit ourselves to growing to be more like Jesus by participating in a smaller group of Christians like a Sunday School class or small group, and that we try our best to follow biblical guidelines when conflict arises among us. “Being the Light” means that the words we speak and the actions we take demonstrate who Jesus is to others in the world. It also means we use our gifts and abilities to serve Jesus and share the Good News about him with others so they can become “spiritually alive in Christ” as well!
