A Friendly Church in the Altoona, PA, Area,
Devoted to Jesus Christ

“… they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.” — Acts 5:42b


VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL UPDATE: Due to the current situation — and the subsequent regulations — we will not conduct Vacation Bible School in the church this June. However, we will be having a Virtual Vacation Bible School each night the week of June 8 to 12! The evening’s video will begin at 6:30 p.m. each night on our Facebook page, and will be saved there for later viewing, too. We are very excited to still be able to reach out to kids across our area and tell them about Jesus! If you are not currently hooked into our Facebook page, visit Facebook and like us at https://www.facebook.com/dryrunchurch1939. Pass this message along to any parents, grandparents, or guardians you know!

SERVICE ADVISORY: We are now conducting services outside in our cars at 10:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. each Sunday until the outbreak ends. Pastor asks that all attendees can remain in their cars. When you come for church, please pay attention to the parking attendants to see where you should park. We will not have Sunday School or Wednesday night prayer meeting. In lieu of Wednesday night prayer meeting, we will continue our 24 hours of prayer until the outbreak ceases. See you next Sunday!

GIVING ADVISORY: There have been some questions about giving during the outbreak. We will be collecting offerings during our outside services, but if you choose not to attend, you can still send your tithes and offerings to the church. Mail your check (PLEASE, NO CASH) to our post office box at Dry Run Independent Baptist Church, P.O. Box 242, Duncansville, PA 16635. Thank you.
