“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! We bless you from the house of the Lord.” (Ps 118:26)

The State College Borough Council adopted a Temporary Emergency Masking Ordinance (effective 9/15/21) that "requires all Borough of State College businesses and other public facilities to require face coverings be worn indoors for all persons, in conformance with the CDC guidance on masking, regardless of vaccination status." The Ordinance may be read HERE as well as FAQs and other information.

Masks are not required for children under 2 years of age, for persons with medical conditions that prevent them from wearing masks and some other exceptions.
The ordinance is in effect until January 31, 2022 or until the CDC no longer identifies Centre County as a "high transmission" area, whichever comes first.

With this in mind, we ask that members wear facemasks during worship at AB. Facemasks will be available at AB if you need one. We thank you for you understanding and cooperation.


We will continue to hold an in-person service of Word and Sacrament at 9 AM on Sundays, as well as an adult and children's Sunday school class following the service.


For those who are uncomfortable or unable to worship in person or for any who are feeling ill, you are invited to join us for a live stream of our 9 AM service at our YouTube channel.


Pastor Wilmoth also remains available for visitation and home communion, and can be reached by email or cell phone.


As we hope to see conditions continue to improve, we devote ourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
