If the van gas tank level drops below a 1/2 tank while being utilized by any ministry other than the Transportation Ministry, that ministry will be responsible for fully refilling the van prior to returning it to The Pentecostals of York.

Non-members (including friends and relatives of church members) will not be permitted to utilize the facilities of The Pentecostals of York.
Due to the lack of full-time staff and fellowship space, The Pentecostals of York will not be able to cater and/or host any celebration of life gatherings. If the immediate family of a deceased church member would like to host a celebration of life gathering with/without food, they can speak directly to the Sr. Pastor to make the arrangements, but they will be responsible for all arrangements (food, setup, cleaning, etc.).
YOUTH MINISTRIES’ BEHAVIOR:
The standard behavior expectation for every student during a class, service, and/or event is that they will be respectful of classmates, teachers, and church property while showing the appropriate spirit of cooperation out of reverence for God. If a student’s behavior doesn’t align with this standard, their behavior issues will be addressed verbally with gentleness and grace. If this doesn’t resolve the issue, we will contact the parent/guardian that dropped them off via text message, the projection system in the tabernacle, or through in-person contact. So, all parents/guardians should have their phones turned on and set to vibrate in case they need to be contacted by the staff.
YOUTH MINISTRIES’ HEALTH:
If your child is feeling ill, please do not allow them to attend any youth ministries’ classes, services, or events. If your child becomes ill during a class, service, or event, we will isolate them from other attendees and contact you immediately.
YOUTH MINISTRIES’ SAFETY:
Only youth ministries’ staff members are allowed inside the youth ministries’ classrooms for safety reasons. Every staff member who serves in these ministries must pass a comprehensive background check and agree to and sign both a ministry description and commitment form.
