The Eastern PA Conference office, closed since March 20, now will be closed until further notice. Our staff is working remotely from home. Conference business operations are continuing during the regular office hours of 8 AM to 5 PM.
This decision is prompted by PA Governor Tom Wolf’s stay-at-home order issued Monday to include residents of counties in the Philadelphia region, including Montgomery County, where the conference office is located. It is part of the state’s effort to curb the rapid spread of the harmful coronavirus pandemic.
Our staff has made extensive preparations to facilitate working from home and to help ensure protection for them and their families from the spread of this deadly virus. We are continuing to process payment invoices and church remittances and manage benefits services, conference communications and other responsibilities as before.
We urge churches to make all remittance payments through the online portal, rather than mailing checks to the conference office. However, any mailed payments will be received and processed. Please know that we are striving to efficiently manage all interactions through email and telephone until we are able to return to the conference office. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
Jo Fielding, Director of Administrative Ministries
