Open For Worship 10 AM

Facebook Live and will continue to broadcast the service.

We are gathering face-to-face once more. We will be taking this process slowly and deliberately. There will be one central entrance at the school road ramp door. As people enter the building, individual temperature checks and hand sanitizer will be available. Anyone having a temperature of 100 degrees or higher is encouraged to stay home or seek medical assistance. We will follow social distancing guidelines, including separation of chairs, use of face masks, avoiding physical contact, or clustering of unrelated individuals. HCC will provide disposable communion and facemasks. The offering plates are located at each door to give your tithes and offerings on your way in or on your way out. You may give your tithes and offerings as an act of worship through the website's online tab or sending your gift to the church P.O. Box 465 Howard, PA. 16841.


The HCC Livestream worship service will continue weekly at 10 AM for those who are high risk, those not ready to venture out, or those who prefer to stay home. Until further notice, there will be no Sunday School classes or children's programming. Below is the list of guidelines for our "Open for Worship" campaign. 


We are thankful for God's provision and love in times like these. We are encouraged at the engagement of HCC during this season of quarantine. You are a testimony of the grace of God. The church is healthy, and God's work continues to be our priority. We love you, and please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

                                                                                               Don Crane
