actionchurch is still meeting on Sunday.

You probably have seen or heard that PA is limiting indoor gatherings to no more than 25 people. Thankfully, this does not apply to religious services, per the Governor, so actionchurch will continue to meet on Sunday mornings.

We’re GRATEFUL to have a building with lots of space, people who are willing to clean and sanitize every week, and people who care for one another enough to take the necessary precautions when we gather.

If you’re not able to join us in-person on Sunday morning, you can always view the livestream at or on our Facebook page. The stream starts around 10:20a.

Making the most of EVERY opportunity…

Like most of you, our family schedule has changed dramatically in the last few weeks.  And, due to the new stay at home order for the rest of April, we’re realizing that things will stay in this weird new “normal” for at least 30 days.  For our family (thankfully) there is still work, school, and the million things around the house needed to keep it clean and functioning…but other than that…our schedule is  MANDATORILY empty.  I was reminded of this scripture this morning as I thought about the upcoming month.  I’m hoping it will help you as you prioritize (and Capitalize) on your newly found “free time” as I hope it will ours…

Pastor Don


15 So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise.16 Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. 17 Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do. 18 Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit,19 singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts. 20 And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. -Paul    (Ephesians 5:15-20) 


Peace in the Storm


If you’ve resolved NOT to panic during this worldwide storm brought on by the Covid19 virus, here’s some ancient (and yet somehow absolutely applicable) words from the prophet Isaiah.  They’ve been running through my mind and I wanted to share them with you.

You will keep in perfect peace
all who trust in you,
all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
Trust in the Lord always,
for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.
He humbles the proud
and brings down the arrogant city.
He brings it down to the dust.
The poor and oppressed trample it underfoot,
and the needy walk all over it.

But for those who are righteous,
the way is not steep and rough.
You are a God who does what is right,
and you smooth out the path ahead of them.

Isaiah 26:3-7

Focus on Jesus.  Trust HIM to make a path for you and your family through this storm.  Perfect peace is possible  (although difficult to say) in even the most fierce of life’s storms!

It all depends on what you focus on…

How can we pray for you?









For the next two weeks, we will be honoring the CDC’s recommendation of not having gatherings larger than ten people in order to be a good neighbor and try to slow the spread of the coronavirus in York County.  That means that for the next two weeks, (3/22 & 3/29) Sunday mornings will involve a handful of folks gathering to pray for our church and our nation, followed by Pastor Don preaching a sermon live on Facebook.  These are unprecedented times…but actionchurch has NEVER BEEN A GATHERING IN A BUILDING!  We’ve met in two different Nightclubs, A theater, and a park.  We’ve closed
the building EVERY YEAR over the holidays and almost every summer for a day in the park.  What makes us a CHURCH is that we are a group of people who chose to LOVE GOD, LOVE PEOPLE, and TAKE ACTION…TOGETHER!

So how can we pray for you?  What are YOU experiencing right now because of this worldwide storm we’re ALL experiencing?  We’d like to pray for you…and we’d like YOU to join us in praying for our church and our world.  There are NO NON-ESSENTIAL CHRISTIANS


Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. (James 5:16)
